If you haven’t already heard the latest, it seems that the return of a beloved Game of Thrones character is turning into the worst-kept secret in TV history. Jon Snow, do you really know nothing?
That was the question on many lips as fans of TV series Game of Thrones stoked the fires of speculation with will-he-or-won’t-he analyses of whether actor Kit Harington’s beloved character will return to the HBO series after being stabbed repeatedly in last season’s finale episode.
To date, the 28-year-old has been spotted at a Wimbledon tennis match with Jon Snow-esque long, curly locks intact, and arriving at Belfast airport with crew members of the show. And now, it seems he has inadvertently let slip that he will continue to be part of the show.
While promoting his film Testament of Youth, he was interviewed by the Belgian magazine Humo. A said transcription of the interview has been circulating online, in which he reveals that he’s had to pass on several amazing roles because “I was attached to Game of Thrones. So the show is like a double-edged sword to me: I owe a lot to it, but at the same time it has almost completely drained me.
“Oh well, I try not to think about it too much. The important thing is that I now know exactly how long I am still under contract… Let's just say that Game of Thrones will remain a part of my life for a while, I'll probably be in my thirties when it's over. One thing's for sure: the day I'm no longer on Thrones is the day I'll bury myself in movie projects.”
Is this true, or could Harington be having pulling the wool cloak over everyone’s eyes? With season six of the show is due to air in early 2016, we’re all watching.
