Game of Thrones Season 6 debuts in just over a month. With questions on Jon Snow's status heating up, Kit Harrington's answers only get rougher and more inconsistent as time goes by
That Jon Snow will show up in some form in the upcoming Game of Thrones Season 6 has become a truism. Even Kit Harrington himself has gone on record to say Jon Snow, as of the Series 5 finale, is good and dead and that, when Season 6 debuts on April 24, he will certainly play a part. Indeed, among character faces, living and dead, who showed up in new HBO teaser posters for Game of Thrones Season 6 was Jon Snow, stoaking the flames of fan credulity ever harder. And now, thanks to a recent interview with Time Out London, a visibly bewildered Harrington was made to face the demons of Season 6 once again, just like Daenerys' major showdown in HBO's behind-the-scenes feature.
"Look, I’m not in the show any more," Harrington wailed into the unmoved ears of Time Out London. "I’m definitely not in the new series." But the event planning site pushed robotically past Harrington's polite disinclination to talk about his HBO role during an interview that was supposed to be about his starring part in Marlowe's Doctor Faustus. "Do you know what happens in the series or have you lost your privileges?" TO London insisted intransigently. "I don’t have a clue," Harrington responded, his patience clearly running dry. "I know how long I’m a corpse for, but I can’t tell you that!" The only thing we find out for sure is that he "filmed some scenes of me being dead," and nothing else about his work on the Renaissance play. Are you tired of questions about Jon Snow's status?
