One of the actors on "Game of Thrones" said in a new interview the fantasy drama mimics modern life under President Donald Trump.
Kit Harington spoke with Variety ahead of the show's eighth and final season and compared Trump to a boy-king on the show who relished in chaos before he was killed in the fourth season.
"I think it's always been about two things for me. About dysfunctional families — or families in general, always where the best drama is — and the everlasting idea that people who seek power are very often the last people who should have it," Harington said.
"Unfortunately, we're leaving 'Thrones' with a Joffrey as the president of the United States of America."
Harington added he is "deeply sad" about the current state of the world.
"I'm deeply sad of the state of the world as 'Thrones' ends," he said. "Because if it was prophetic, you'd hope that people would have watched 'Thrones' and tried to avoid some of the situations these characters find themselves in, and I feel like we are living in a more 'Thrones'-like world."
