Thought waiting for ice to melt to reveal the premiere date of "Game of Thrones" season 7 was bad, well, waiting for the main event in July is going to be excruciating. But star Kit Harington, who plays John Snow, promises it'll be worth it.

"I certainly did more [action] this season than I've ever done. I think every actor did more action, had more action, had more scenes," he told the Huffington Post.

Even though season 7 has fewer episodes than previous season, they will jam-packed. "They spent an increasing amount of money on less episodes, so it's gonna be much bigger in scale, the CGI," he teased. "We're trying new things, experimenting with new camera techniques. I think we're trying to break boundaries and push past boundaries in these final two seasons."

While the action may be more epic, the focus will narrow down to the core characters we've come to know and love (or hate).

"They really focused it because less characters are coming in, and they're focusing on the existing ones," Harington added. "There are lots of people who cross paths and that's something the audience has been waiting for for a long time."

Two characters who will be crossing paths? Jon and his aunt, Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who was on a ship bound for Westeros in the season 6 finale.
