Winter Is Coming, And With It, Jon Snow, According To His Hair

Nancy Bailey

Snow will fly in the harsh, brittle world beyond the wall, as ice zombies known as the White Walkers make their way toward the battle of the ages and the Crows gather their rag-tag band of warriors.

And Jon Snow is the central figure in the minds of angst-riddled Game Of Thrones fans, about to embark on another long-anticipated season this Sunday.

The question was posed to every cast member walking on the red carpet during the Season 6 Game of Thrones premier in LA, as The Inquisitr detailed, with some hilarious results.

The question rises up in virtually every interview with anyone having anything to do with the film.

Fans are buzzing. Is he, or isn't he? If he isn't, how is he going to reappear?

YouTuber Katie Wilson even made a song called "Jon Snow," parodying Meghan Trainor's, "No."

"… and I've finished Thrones. I have. I've died."
"Um … I had to be a dead body in Northern Ireland. You can't just forget that he's actually died. I had to be a dead body. So there was a certain amount of filming that had to be done. I just hope everyone keeps watching the show. Which they will … God, now I'm gone, nobody's gonna watch it!"

But Harington maintains his position.

"I'm bloody good at playing a dead body. I've actually found I'm very good at it. It was some of my best work."

Therein lies the rub.

"But I like it," Harington protests.

"I got too attached."
"He'll kill me for saying this, but if we're on the red carpet, I promise he'll stand in front of the mirror for hours. I've seen him do it. … It's never good enough for him. He's gonna absolutely kill me."
"In all of Westeros, nobody has a better mane than Jon Snow, not even the Lannisters, who fancy themselves lions. In the actual real world, the same is true of Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow."

Harington seems to love the new role.

"There's something in that. I think it's referred to as the 'hot whore of celebrity that drags his soul to hell'. I don't know why that's interesting to me, actually! It could be ­interesting to any actor or musician, anyone who's stepped into this life and found they've discovered some kind of fame. It's definitely something I can use my own experience of."

As to Game of Thrones, and Jon Snow's death, Harington waxes philosophical.

"How many countless thousands of people die in those shows (like The Avengers), and no one feels the effect? With Thrones, someone dies and there's mourning, there's loss. It's grotesque, it's horrible, it's real. That's the difference, and I think that's where it treads the right line."
