Game Of Thrones Season 6 Spoilers: Jon Snow Reveals Any Character Could Be Killed Off
Kit Harington slammed rumors about his character being alive for Game of Thrones season 6. Although Jon Snow died during the last episode of the previous season, the Lord of Winterfell was regarded as alive since fans of the series spotted the actor on set while filming for the latest season.Advertisement
During an interview with BBC Breakfast earlier this week, Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow in the GOT franchise, was asked as to whether his character would be revived for Game of Thrones season 6. The actor responded, “All I can tell you is Jon Snow… is dead. He died at the end of last season,” as reported by Express.
The interviewer then followed up with a question, “But his spirit lives on…?” Harington responded, “Who knows? We’ll have to wait and see. It’s going to be a very exciting season.”
Initially, HBO programming president, Michael Lombardo, already revealed that Jon Snow is definitely dead. However, after Harington was seen on set wearing a leather armor incorporating the House Stark design, rumors surface saying the character may be revived in season six.
In fact, it was reported by Gizmodo that Jon Snow may be involved in a huge battle to gain control of Westeros, but not with the Night’s Watch this time. Does this mean Jon Snow may have survived after all, despite the actor and programming president’s notions?
Harrington also expounded about the possibility of the lead character’s ability to survive during the next season. Since he already indicated that Jon Snow is dead since season five, the interviewer asked as to whether the same fate would happen to the rest of the characters.
Harington responded, “It has been a theme for the show and I think it’s what makes the show very exciting, it’s what people love about it; there’s no safety there, there’s no one lead character that’s going to make it through.” He added, “You can’t trust that anyone will do that. I think that… so I’m led to believe.”
Harington’s take on the character’s inevitable futures was reflected during a previous article that indicates Tycho Nestoris may be one of the characters who won’t make it through to the next season.
The report indicates that the actor who plays Tycho, Mark Gatiss, may not be taking part in further seasons of the series. In fact, a piece release by George R.R. Martin himself reveals that Tycho will be able to meet with Stannis when he was sent by Jon Snow. His task is said to inform Stannis about the Karstarks’ betrayal of him.
Furthermore, it was also stated that Tycho would lead Stannis to Castle Black under the facility of the Night’s Watch to ensure that he survives the journey. However, since it was revealed that the actor would not partake in more seasons of the franchise, will Harington’s notion about characters not being able to survive true? Will Tycho die in Game of Thrones season 6?
In other news, Watchers on the Wall reports that the stars of GOT season 6 gave the opportunity for fans to enjoy a tour on set if they donate to RED charity. The chosen winners will be provided a tour of the set, and the actors would give out major spoilers during such.
The announcement was posted on Game of Thrones’ official Twitter page:
