“Game of Thrones” Season 6 is just a couple of weeks away from its premiere, and fans have been waiting with bated breath to watch how the various plots unravel, especially the one about Jon Snow’s death. And it’s not just fans, even Camilla Parker Bowles aka the Duchess of Cornwall was curious to know Jon’s future in the HBO series. Well, finally it looks like the actor Kit Harington himself has put the debate of dead or undead Jon Snow to rest and revealed it to the Duchess of Cornwall.
The actor, who recently appeared on “The Jonathon Ross Show,” shared that he got invited to Wimbledon by the Duchess of Cornwall, who also curiously asked him whether Jon Snow was “dead or alive.” And Harington finally revealed Snow’s future to the Duchess.
“Me and my brother got invited to Wimbledon as you do and a Royal was hosting, we didn’t know which Royal it was and it was the Duchess of Cornwall, and she was hosting it and we got sat with her, me and my brother. She leant over the table and said, ‘Are you dead? No word of a lie,'” Harington said on the show.
Harington then apparently replied to the Duchess saying, “I get this from everybody.”
And as he continued to chat, he insisted that his character on “Game of Thrones” is definitely dead, but at the same time he teased that he will appear in a few episodes.
“I was there for about a month or two months; it was spread over a bit and I was playing a corpse. I won’t tell you how many episodes I’m lying dead but it’s enough that I was out there for quite a while,” he explained.
“It’s going to be so relieving when people actually see the show and realise that I don’t come back, and that I was telling the truth the whole time.”
Well, we will just have to accept what Harington says for now and keep our hopes low — dead is dead and so is Jon Snow.
“Game of Thrones” Season 6 will premiere Sunday, April 24 in the U.S. and UK and in India, episode 1 will be aired Tuesday, April 26, 10 p.m. on Star World Premiere HD, as well.
