'Jon Snow Is Dead—Get Used To It'

According to Kit Harington

Game of Thrones fans have been debating for what feels like years about the fate of Jon Snow after that fifth season finale, but actor Kit Harington has potentially dealt us all a fatal blow to the heart.

Kit told Digital Spy that Jon Snow is very much dead, and that fans should "get used" to the prospect, echoing various comments from other cast members over the past nine months or so.

Talking about the intense fan reaction to the final scenes which saw Jon Snow being betrayed by the Night's Watch, he said: "I was hoping that there would be an outcry of 'why?' and 'oh god, no, no' rather than 'thank god'. That was the right reaction as far as I was concerned!

"People didn't want me to die, but he's dead. So there you go, everyone has to get used to it."

Harington will soon make a return to theatre in Jamie Lloyd's new London production of Doctor Faustus. The actor also gave further hints that Jon Snow's involvement in season six will be minimal:

"I haven't done Thrones in a while. I had quite a lot of time off last year. I've been taking it easy. And relaxing. When I realized I was doing this, I had a few months to prepare for it, and something like this takes some working through before even getting into the rehearsal room."

Dagger to the heart.

When asked how he has dealt with constant rumors surrounding Jon Snow's fate, he added:

"I've just hit the ground, and gone undercover. I've tried to do absolutely no press for anything."

"It's brilliant, the fact that people care about this TV show and what happens to the people they love or hate in it, is a special thing. I've got nothing to complain about, put it that way. If they care about it and I get asked about it a lot, it means that people hold it dear to their hearts and it's doing what it meant to."

So if Jon Snow is dead, will he still watch it?

"Yeah, absolutely. Can't wait for the next season."

We're not totally sure whether or not to believe Kit, but he sounded very convincing. Either way, we'll have to wait until April to find out if he was having us on or not.
