Kit Harington Continues Lying (Probably) About Jon Snow
Kit Harington is continuing to talk about his role, or lack thereof, in the new season of the hit series ‘Game of Thrones’. He’s revealed he’ll be back for Season 6 though he does not seem to have given up lying about why.
After his character Jon Snow was stabbed to death by his Night’s Watch comrades at the end of Season 5, Harington told The Sunday Times Culture magazine: “I had to be a dead body in Northern Ireland. You can’t just forget that he’s actually dead. I had to be a dead body. So there was a certain amount of filming that had to be done.”
The actor then joked: “I’m bloody good at playing a dead body. It was some of my best work.”
As for the seemingly endless speculation that we haven’t seen the last of Jon Snow alive, Harington concluded: “I’ve finished Thrones, I have, I’ve died.”
Harington has been photographed on and around the Belfast set of Game of Thrones on numerous occasions, which makes us believe he’s not telling the truth. Or maybe Harington is being completely honest, and Jon Snow really is dead but will be resurrected and come back as wights – a reanimated corpse, either human or animal, raised from death by the White Walkers to act as their minions.
You be the judge.
The highly anticipated return of ‘Game of Thrones’ is set to air on HBO Sunday, April 24.
