Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington has effectively jinxed his character in an interview with TheWrap for their August 2016 Down to the Wire Emmy Issue.
The 29-year-old British actor, who plays Jon Snow on the show, told TheWrap: “I feel like one of the safest people on Thrones now. Maybe I shouldn’t say that. He could die next season, but I felt very safe this season.”
Rule Number 1, Kit: NO ONE is safe on Game of Thrones. He’s pretty much challenged the writers to kill him off now, and I’m not sure the world would cope with losing Jon a second time.
Kit also talked about the iconic moment he was was brought back to life in season 6 and it sounds like he wouldn’t be up for another resurrection scene either: “It’s a very crucial gasp, and that’s why we did it about a thousand times. They wanted it every single which way. They were right to do it that way, but I got very bored with it”
We’ll never get bored of it…
But it seems Kit will be sad to leave Game of Thrones, whenever that may be, telling TheWrap: “I love it, and I’ll deeply miss it when it’s gone.” Join the club.
