Kit’s BackKit Harington remains ever humble. Critics call him enigmatic. We like to think he’s 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 6 of Game of Thrones. That means the British actor reprises his role as the dour-faced hero in HBO’s epic tale of family feuds and fornication, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Harington’s humility at age 29 reflects a maturity that’s uncommon in the preening fraternity of Hollywood.
Much like his brooding GoT character, he doesn’t give much away, and his focus is on his work instead of courting the limelight. He’s not one to boast about his success on the London stage or how his co-workers praise his work ethic. 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? The GoT characters whose fates are uncertain
Jon Snow (Kit Harington)
Knifed (repeatedly) by fellow members of the Night’s Watch in the Season 5 finale, but HBO has teased his return. Perhaps Melisandre (Carice van Houten) resurrected him?
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 4, but his masked appearance at the end of last season suggested otherwise. Is he now an undead Frankenmountain?
