The scene in question featured Jon Snow confronting Daenerys about destroying King's Landing, and ultimately killing her for what she did.

'We felt a sense of responsibility over it. We shot the h**l out of it. It was essentially a page and a half of dialogue, and we spent three weeks filming it,' Harington said.

'They wanted to shoot every conceivable angle, every way, to make sure they got it the way they wanted it. When you're shooting the same scene for two weeks and it's a page and a half, it becomes a long exercise in concentration,' he added.

'You have to remember the energy you're bringing in, every day, and making sure it's consistent. With a highly emotionally charged scene like that, it's quite a lot, for everyone — the crew, me and Emilia. It was tiring. It's one of the hardest things we filmed,' he said.

After the series finale aired in May, HBO aired Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, a documentary with behind-the-scenes footage from the entire season.

One of the most memorable moments of the documentary is where Harington reacts in a shocking fashion during the table read for the season, and that is because the actor didn't read any of the scripts before the table read.

Energy: 'You have to remember the energy you're bringing in, every day, and making sure it's consistent. With a highly emotionally charged scene like that, it's quite a lot, for everyone ¿ the crew, me and Emilia. It was tiring. It's one of the hardest things we filmed,' he said

'I hadn't read the scripts for the final season until the table read. I wanted to hear them around the table, without having read anything first,' he said.

The actor added that he sat next to his co-star Clarke on the plane to Belfast, the show's production hub where the table read was held, where she warned him, 'S**t, Kit, you're in for some surprises.'

'I didn't realize what was going to happen the whole way through until maybe half a page before Jon kills Dany,' he added.

'I remember my mouth dropping open and looking across Emilia at the table, who was slowly nodding as I went, "No, no, no!" It was a "holy f**k" moment, pardon my language,' he continue.

'Jaw dropping. I was completely surprised by it, even though you can kind of see the path through the season of how it was getting there — and even the previous couple of seasons before that, once you can look back. But it was still a big shock to me.'

Harington is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series at the Emmy Awards, with Game of Thrones earning a record-breaking 32 nominations, the most ever for a series in one year.
