I mean, when is that going to happen?" Harington said.

The 31-year-old actor was speaking on the sidelines of ongoing Toronto International Film Festival, where he was joined by his "The Death and Life of John F Donovan" co-stars Emily Hampshire and Thandie Newton and director Xavier Dolan.

Newton added, "It is changing, but we have to get behind those changes and keep pushing it".
