Jon Snow Game Of Thrones HBO

After 7 Seasons on Game Of Thrones, Kit Harington finally believes he's got this Jon Snow business down. It's a good thing, considering he doesn't have much time left in the role, but what exactly does he mean by that? Harington explains why and how he feels more comfortable as Jon Snow in Season 7 below:

There were times early on where I felt what I was doing with the character was wrong. I made mistakes and felt that he wasn't interesting enough. That sounds weird, but I've never been quite content with him. Maybe that's what makes him him. That angst. He could be a bit too morose, he didn't quite go there emotionally ... This year there is this huge seismic shift where all of what he's learned over the years, suddenly... He's still the same Jon, but he grows up.

Harington expands to Time magazine, saying that his goal from the start of the series was to show an evolution of his character and that he feels that Jon Snow has grown more in Season 7 than any season past. Harington admits that while he has been dissatisfied with parts of the character he has developed, he hasn't changed them, as not to betray his instincts as to who he thought Snow was at the beginning of the series. It sounds like the decision paid off, as Game Of Thrones viewers will get to see this real transformation of the King In The North that Harington is so proud of.

Kit Harington isn't the only person who has felt uncomfortable with Jon Snow, as many rants have been made amongst fans that his character can be a bit boring. In a world where a vengeful queen burns her enemies alive in a Sept and a woman leads nations with three dragons, a pale dude who spent years on a wall may seem a bit vanilla in comparison. Harington seems to feel that as he notes that sometimes it's just as frustrating to play Jon Snow as it is to BE Jon Snow.

So what changes can we expect from Jon Snow? No official word on that, but the man is a bonafide king now so perhaps a more regal Jon will be on display when we see him in Game Of Thrones? Jon Snow seems a bit too humble for such pride, so it's more likely that increased confidence in leadership and strategy will be his main improvements, provided no enemy sends a sibling out in the middle of the battlefield. Maybe it's something far more subtle, like the writers just retconned his small wiener and Kit Harington is just really jazzed about that.
