At this point, as excited as they are for the actual new season, Game of Thrones fans are just ready to find out if Jon Snow is dead or alive already. As insistent as the creative team behind Westeros is that Ned Stark’s bastard has breathed his last, pretty much everyone watching is convinced that he’s coming back in some way, shape, or form. Please, god, may our international nightmare come to an end on April 24.
As sick as you are of speculating and formulating “Jon Snow Lives” theories, no one is as ready for all to be revealed as Kit Harington. Harington appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show this week, and admitted that even Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and wife of Prince Charles, is hitting him up for inside information.
‘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.’
Despite being seen on set multiple times looking decidedly alive and not-corpse-like, Harington insists that he’s dead as a doornail.
‘I was there for a little bit, 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. It’s going to be so satisfying when you see it and you realise that I was telling the truth the whole time.’
Okay, dude. We believe you. *conspiratorial wink*
He’s definitely going to be Azor Ahai reborn, right?
