“Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington has once again had to address the death of his beloved character, and this time debunked another fan theory: Jon Snow will not become a White Walker.
The actor made the comment during an appearance on “The Jonathan Ross Show,” during which the host gave his guest a series of electric shocks while fishing for the truth about Snow’s fate.
After Harington assured Ross his character was indeed dead (as he’s stated many, many times before), Ross brought up another popular speculation: “Do you become a white walker?”
“No,” said Harington.
Last month, Harington finally admitted that he filmed scenes for “Game of Thrones” Season 6, but not for the reason fans had been hoping for.
“Look, I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series,” Harington told TimeOut London. “I filmed some scenes of me being dead — it’s some of my best work.”
In the last moments of Season 5, Snow gets betrayed by his fellow brothers of the Night’s Watch, who take turns stabbing him multiple times. As this was happening, Lady Melisandre (Carice van Houten) arrived at Castle Black, which fueled speculation that the character may not be dead for long, given Melisandre’s resurrection powers.
Since then, various cast members and fans have weighed in on the character’s fate. In January, Harington told BBC Breakfast that “Jon Snow is dead,” but “it’s going to be an exciting season, so I’m led to believe.”
Fans will find out if the actor is telling the truth when “Game of Thrones” returns to HBO on April 24.
