WESTEROS – HBO has released the first picture of Jon Snow in the new season of Game of Thrones.
Season 6 of Game of Thrones is due for April next year but already the first picture of Jon Snow has leaked EXCLUSIVELY onto the Studio Exec. Actor Kit Harrington also popped down the Studio Exec Keep to discuss his new role and explain what is going on after the shocking conclusion of the last season, which seemed to show Jon Snow being [SPOILER] killed to death.
So Kit what the frick is going on?
Initially everyone who has read the novels knows what happens to Jon Snow and so the producers and writers wanted to carry on the story. They have changed some things but they don’t want to go to far away from George RR Martin’s vision. But the reactions of the fans was unbelievable and I think they began to get cold feet.
So is it fair to say that you are back among the living?
Well, there was the idea that I could be recruited into the army of the White Walkers, but I don’t think that would really work and it wasn’t what my fans wanted to see so they decided that what would happen is they would do… well you know when you break a phone.
You reset to factory settings.
Exactly. What we would do is make part of the show leading up to the climax part of a dream and then I would be in the shower and I would be alive.
That’s amazing. So how far back can we expect to go? Just part of that episode?
That was the original idea but then we got really ambitious because you know, think of the possibilities. And so David Benioff was like there were firecrackers going off behind his eyes. And I said, ‘we’re just going back one episode right?’ And so guess what he said? It was so clever.
You know nothing Jon Snow.
He said, ‘You…’ oh yeah that’s what he said. So he wanted to go further back basically.
So the season was a whole dream?
I can’t say much. But what I can say is that Sean Bean will be back.
