Reflecting on that time today, Dobrev maintains that the exit was her choice. "That was the plan from the get-go," she told harper by Harper's Bazaar.

Kit Harington Wants the Got Cast to Get Matching Tattoos When the Show Ends

Even though he isn't too keen on the idea, he said he could be persuaded depending on the design. So what exactly qualifies as a great tattoo? While host James Corden suggested they all get dragons on their backs, Lin-Manuel Miranda joked that Nikolaj should get his onscreen sister Cersei's name with a heart (ew). Guess we'll just have to wait and see if he actually gives in. »
