KIT DEAD SET ABOUT SNOW
IT has been a little over a month since Jon Snow died in the finale of the fifth season of the hit TV show Game of Thrones.
Speculation has been rife about whether Snow, played by English actor Kit Harington, is really dead.
Director David Nutter confirmed he’s dead, even telling a concerned US President Barack Obama he’s dead. Harington himself has stated Snow is dead.
But Harington has been seen arriving in Belfast as actors began their script read- through for the keenly anticipated sixth season, due to hit screens next April.
Harington was also spotted at Wimbledon sporting a Jon Snow hair style.
Harington was spotted by fan site “Watchers on the Wall”, on a flight to Belfast – the show is filmed in Northern Ireland – with actor Tom Wlaschiha, who plays the mysterious Jaqen H’ghar.
The picture is the biggest indication that Kit will still play a role in Thrones despite Snow seemingly having been stabbed to death by his mates in the Night’s Watch.
Fans who bumped
into Harington claimed he refused to take pictures because he “wasn’t allowed”.
This is in stark ( ahem) contrast to Harington’s own words in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“I had a sit- down with Dan ( Weiss) and David ( Benioff), we did the Tony Soprano walk ( letting an actor know they’re being whacked). And they said: ‘ Look, you’re gone, it’s done’.”
Harington even added he was annoyed about an article that stated he was getting a pay rise for season six and had even been optioned for season seven.
“I don’t know where it came from, but it was inaccurate. It’s going to put questions into your head and into fans’ heads that things are not what they are,” he said.
“I have never been told the future of things in this show, but this is the one time I have. They sat me down and said, ’ This is how it is.’
“If anything in the future is not like that, then I don’t know about it – it’s only in David and Dan and George’s ( RR Martin) heads.
“But I’ve been told I’m dead. I’m dead. I’m not coming back next season. So that’s all I can tell you, really.”
