Emilia Clarke and the author of “Game of Thrones” George RR Martin admitted that the idea for a Jon Snow spin-off actually came from Kit Harrington. In June 2022, Emilia Clarke told the BBC that Kit Harrington told her about the project.
“He told me about it,” Clarke said at the time. “And I know it exists. It happens. It was created by Kit as far as I know, so it’s been in it from the start. So what you will hopefully watch if it happens is certified by Kit Harington.
