Main characters are routinely killed off in Game of Thrones but Kit Harrington believes he is going to be safe on the show for a while as his part Jon Snow was just resurrected.
Harrington’s Snow, one of the most adored roles on the fantasy drama, was surprisingly killed off in season five angering fans. He, however, was brought back to life at the beginning of sixth season.
When asked Harrington, 29, whether resurrection grants him permanent immunity, he told The Wrap, “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. If I come back to life in Episode 2, it would be awful storytelling if you kill me in Episode 4. So I felt a bit cocky.”
Fans had a theory that Snow will be different and probably a negative character when he returns to life. Harrington says he too was disappointed to be the same despite going through the transformation.
“He comes back as himself, as the Jon that everyone knows. Which at first I found disappointing. But it’s more subtle than that. He has an insight into what lies beyond that very few people in his world do, and that no one in our world does—he knows that there’s no afterlife. Which does quietly drive who he is and what he wants to do.”
Game of Thrones season 7 will air on Star World Premiere in India.
