Kit’s BackKit Harington remains ever humble. Critics refer to him as enigmatic. We call him a white wolf in sheep’s clothing. But is his Game of Thrones character Jon Snow alive or dead?
Spoiler alert: Jon Snow is back in season six of Game Of Thrones. This means London-born Harington reprises his role as the dour-faced fulcrum to HBO’s epic tale of family feuds and fornication. And we couldn’t be happier about it. At 29, Harington’s humility shows a maturity lacking in so many of the preening Hollywood fraternity.
Much like his broody GOT character, he gives away little and focuses on work rather than courting the limelight. He’s not one to boast about the theatre successes or burgeoning trophy cabinet his work ethic wins him. Harington shows there’s no need to shout about your achievements; they can speak for themselves. It turns out Jon Snow does know something after all.
Dead or Alive? Will these characters survive season 6?
The fates of these characters are still very uncertain
Jon Snow (Kit Harington)
Knifed (repeatedly) by fellow members of the Night’s Watch in the season five finale, but HBO have teased his return – perhaps resurrected by ‘red priestess’ Melisandre (Carice Van Houten).
Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)
Last seen escaping her sadistic husband Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) by jumping from a castle wall. It may have been a long way down, but they can’t kill off another Stark… can they?
Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson)
The outlook didn’t look good for Cersei’s giant champion after he was poisoned in battle in season four, but his masked appearance at the end of last series suggested otherwise. Is he alive, or even… undead?
