Speaking with ET’s Carly Steel, Harington answered the question about the circling rumors about Jon Snow and Daenerys’ photo together.

The interviewer asked him what he felt about the fact that fans could not wait to witness the highly-anticipated meeting of Jon and Daenerys in Game of Thrones Season 7. Kit Harington responded, “I can’t really talk about it. That’s the most annoying thing in this season I think. You know, there’s paparazzi and drones flying around. I think we all got very upset and angry that people wanna spoil a TV show in that way for people.”

Harington added, “It really infuriates me when I see someone ruining that for people.” When asked about the measures to preserve the show’s secrecy, he explained: “I think we did everything we could.”
