Out of all the things one could keep off the set of Game of Thrones, a statue of yourself is definitely up there. Kit Harington, who stars as Jon Snow in the wildly popular series, recently revealed he kept his crypt statue and sure, makes sense.

Appearing on BBC Music to promote his latest works, including How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Harington of course got quizzed about GoT season eight. And, of course, he can’t say shit so instead, he talked about his statue.

The statue appears in the season eight teaser so it’s all the rage at the moment.

“I kept that statue. You know, the one in the crypt?” he told the BBC. “I kept it. They sent it to my house so I’ve got it in my shed. How sad is that? I was the only one who kept their statue. That’s how narcissistic I am. I’m going to turn it into a water feature.” 

Bless him.

Though Harington couldn’t drop any specific details about S8, he did talk about his feelings for the finale.

“It’s weird walking around with this – I think for all of us – walking around with this big kind of secret where we know how it all wraps up and you know, I don’t think anyone’s really – I think it’s like when you finish a book, like you’re not happy it’s over, are you? You don’t finish a good book and go ‘I’m happy I finished that’.” 

“You have this grief,” he continued. “Nine years of doing this show and no matter how it ended or how it does end, there’s always going to be a bit of you that goes, ‘Aw’, there’s this sort of loss around it. So maybe not happy but very satisfied.” 

Harington went on to say that he was “very excited” for people to see the final season.

“Hopefully it’ll change TV again like it did originally and break boundaries.” 

You can catch his interview below, the GoT chatter begins at the 2:05 mark.

The actor is currently sporting that luscious moustache for his role in the play, True West. 

Game of Thrones season eight returns April 14 on HBO (April 15 for us).

If you haven’t seen this brilliant piece of marketing yet, enjoy.

Too bloody gewd.
