Kit Harington, Game of Thrones


You know nothing about Jon Snow's fate, Game of Thrones viewer. Actually, that's not true. You know a lot of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and his big season five death and his season six status, especially if you have the Internet and have ever Googled Jon Snow and/or Game of Thrones. The latest evidence of a (likely) resurrection has surfaced on Instagram from the Game of Thrones wrap party. Guess who was spotted there? Yeah, it's him, partying and wrapping with the best of them.

Let's rewind a bit: Jon Snow "died" at the end of season five. Harington gave an exit interview to Entertainment Weekly and said he's dead, he's done.

"This is my understanding of it," Harington said when asked if Jon Snow was really dead. "I had a sit-down with [Game of Thrones executive producers] 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.'...Quite honestly, 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 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."

Then the sightings started once season six started production. Harington was spotted in Belfast with cast members. He was seen on set by paps. Nobody was budging. HBO's boss said he was dead. Everybody said he was dead.

Harington spoke out about the constant attention when promoting his new spy movie MI-5. "Do I think people taking photos of you without your permission is rude? Of course I do. I deal with it a lot. There's a lot of camera phones being pointed at me in not such a subtle manner," he told Vulture.
