Let’s hope that when the first episode of “Game Of Thrones” season six drops in a few weeks, we find out what the deal is with Jon Snow, because the is-he-dead/how-is-he-dead/is-he-coming-back conversation is getting a bit exhausting — as it must be for Kit Harington, who has shown some impressive fortitude in being asked about the character’s fate at every turn.
The latest barrage of inquiry came on “The Jonathan Ross Show” (via Express), and the actor revealed that he’s dead — yes, Jon Snow is dead, for real — in more than one episode. “I was playing a corpse. I was there for a little bit, I was there for about a month or two months, it was spread over a bit and I was playing a corpse,” Harington said. “I won’t tell you how many episodes I’m lying dead but it’s enough that I was out there for quite a while.”
Why Harington needed to play a carcass for more than one episode, we’ll just have to wait and see, but he can’t wait to tell everyone toldja! about Jon Snow’s fate. “It’s going to be so satisfying when you see it and you realise that I was telling the truth the whole time.”
Meanwhile, Ian McShane is much more blasé. Coming under fire a while back for apparently giving away something top secret about Jon Snow, he thinks everyone should just chill. “You say the slightest thing and the internet goes ape,” he told The Telegraph. “I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a f—ing life. It’s only tits and dragons.”
“Game Of Thrones” returns on April 24th. Check out a new featurette below.
