Game of Thrones - Season 6 - Kit Harington Interview

On the last episode of the current series of The Jonathan Ross Show, Jonathan speaks to Game of Thrones star, Kit Harrington, who insists that his Game of Thrones character is definitely dead but teases that he appears in a few episodes of the new series.

Star of the globally successful Game of Thrones series, Kit Harrington, joined the sofa and spoke to Jonathan about being naked on stage, meeting the Duchess of Cornwall and insisting that his character, Jon Snow, is no longer alive in the popular fantasy series.

Kit - who is most famous for his role as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones - responded to rumours that his character is not dead and will return to the new series of the fantasy drama television series.

Kit said that everywhere he goes, people ask him if his character was killed at the end of the last series.

“There’s a guy at my Sainsburys I go to, I love this man. He’s very dear to my heart. He sees me come in and he goes straight to the till and he bars everyone else, he flicks them across until I get there and he goes ‘You ain’t dead is it?’ And I’m like ‘I am dead.’ And he goes, ‘Nah, you ain’t dead, I know’ and I’m like, ‘How do you know? I’m dead.’ And he goes, ‘You’d be crying if you were dead’ and this happens everytime I go in. I think he thinks I’d be weeping in the street for the rest of my life that I’m not in Game of Thrones anymore” he explained.

When Jonathan asked: “How do you keep the secrets that you must know about the show going forward, how do you manage to get through it without giving that away? There must be a few close people you can talk to?”

Kit replied: “I am no longer involved in the show so any secrets that are with the show I don’t actually know anymore, so it becomes very easy Jonathan. You’re looking at me like you don’t believe me. It’s going to be so relieving when people actually see the show and realise that I don’t come back.”

When Jonathan mentioned about Kit filming in Belfast as Jon Snow recently, Kit said: “I was playing a corpse. I was there for a little bit, I was there for about a month or two months, it was spread over a bit and I was playing a corpse.”

Jonathan joked, “Yeah, because when you’re lying dead you’ve got to film for a couple of months…”

To which Kit responded: “I won’t tell you how many episodes I’m lying dead but it’s enough that I was out there for quite a while. It’s going to be so satisfying when you see it and you realise that I was telling the truth the whole time,” he smirked.

Kit said it’s not only fans of the show who ask him about whether his character is dead or not, he said famous people - and even the royals - are also interested to know: “I get this from everybody. Me and my brother got invited to Wimbledon as you do and a Royal was hosting, we didn’t know which Royal it was and it was the Duchess of Cornwall and she was hosting it and we got sat with her, me and my brother, and she leant over the table and said ‘Are you dead?’ No word of a lie,” he laughed.

Jonathan and Kit played a game, ‘The Stone of Truth’ where Kit had to put his hand in the mouth of ‘The Stone of Truth’ and could get a small shock depending on the quality of his answer to Jonathan’s questions about Game of Thrones.
