Harington has played Jon Snow since Season 1 of the hit HBO series. He’s one of the few characters that can boast being around for the entirety of the cultural phenomenon that is “Game of Thrones,” something the late-night host noted during their interview.
“This show was a big cultural definer for the 2010s,” Colbert said. “So we can blame you for where we are now.”
“I got this theory that we kind of screwed the political landscape,” Harington said.
“By making the Lannisters an acceptable form of ruling family?” Colbert joked, referencing the blond-haired villains of the series.
“No, I just felt that certain political figures tried to emulate Joffrey, you know? And things went a little bit wrong.”
The star referenced the brutal King character played by Jack Gleeson that had fans cringing week-to-week at his twisted cruelty.
Although the English actor did not mention President Donald Trump by name, Colbert seemed to drive the comparison home by suggesting that Harington “got the hair right.”
