Kit Harrington On ‘Game Of Thrones’

Harrington rose to sudden fame on Game of Thrones along with many of the young members of its original cast. The English actor recently admitted that the success of the show has come with both its positives and negatives in an interview while promoting his new film, Testament of Youth. He also went on to talk about his contract – which is where things got the most revealing.

Harrington was seen at Wimbledon over the summer with his mane of dark brown curls fully intact, sparking rumors that his days of playing Jon Snow were not yet behind him.

Despite Harrington’s ongoing insistence that his character is truly dead, few have been convinced that he is. Multiple fan theories explain ways in which Jon Snow can return, suggesting that Ned Stark’s supposed bastard still has more of his storied life left to live.
