Spoilers regarding the upcoming new season of Game Of Thrones have emerged courtesy of several cast members of the hit fantasy show.
During a Reddit question and answer session, Bean was once again asked about one of the most infamous Game Of Thrones fan theories that involves his illegitimate son, Jon Snow.
Warning – there are several SPOILERS ahead. So if you want to watch Game Of Thrones without it being tainted then you probably shouldn’t read ahead.
During the Q&A Bean was asked, “Why did you not teach Jon Snow anything?,” to which he responded: “Because he’s not mine!… Little b******!”
When asked for further details on who Jon Snow’s father might be, he added, “How am I supposed to know? Does anybody know? I don’t think he’s mine.” He then got even more vitriolic when Snow was brought up once again during the Q&A, and he added, “F*** Jon Snow.”
This isn’t the first time that Bean has made these sort of comments regarding the parentage of Jon Snow, who is played by Kit Harrington. Last month, while discussing the possibility that he could return to Game Of Thrones courtesy of a flashback, he declared: “I’ve definitely got some unfinished business that needs to be resolved there. I’m obviously not Jon Snow’s dad. And you need that to be revealed at some point, don’t you.”
Many Game Of Thrones fans believe that rather than being the result of a love-affair between Ned and another woman, Jon Snow is actually the daughter of Ned’s sister, Lyanna, while his father is Rhaegar Targaryen, who was the real future king of Westeros.
Meanwhile Rory McCann, who played The Hound throughout the show’s first four seasons, has admitted that he holds hope of returning to Game Of Thrones in the future.
The Hound looked to have died after he became embroiled in a fight with Gwendoline Christie’s Brienne of Tarth during the final episode of season four. The Hound looked to have been fatally injured after tumbling down a huge mountain during the battle.
But McCann now believes that he was just injured and wasn’t killed outright, which means he still thinks he could return. “It wasn’t looking good, was it? If he opens his mouth, and ‘blubbbbb’ the blood comes out, that’s not looking good,” he told Access Hollywood. “There’s always hope, but I don’t know.”
Do you think that The Hound will return to Game Of Thrones?
