Kit Harington doesn't want to play another Jon Snow again after 'Game of Thrones'

(CNN) - Kit Harington says it's time for him to take a break from the warrior-type characters.

In other words, he's done with playing roles like Jon Snow from "Game of Thrones."

"I don't want to try and repeat Jon Snow," Harington said in an interview with Harper's Bazaar.

So if not a sultry, brave hero, then what does Harington want to play?

"Maybe something slightly lighter," the 32-year-old said. "It's a very heavy, heavy show, heavy role. So something which is a bit lighter, a bit funnier maybe. Other than that, I don't really know."

Harington hasn't been timid about testing out his comedic side. Last April, he hosted "Saturday Night Live," taking questions from his "Game of Thrones" co-stars asking for spoilers on the series' final season.

But that doesn't mean Harington isn't feeling nostalgic about saying farewell to the HBO hit drama.

While he isn't allowed to take any souvenirs from the show, Harington admitted he did keep something for himself.

"I got my gloves," he said. "I kept my gloves."

The "Game of Thrones" series finale airs Sunday, May 19.
