In a Dutch interview, Kit Harington may have confirmed a theory Game of Thrones fans have been tossing around ever since the Season 5 finale…
WARNING: This features spoilers for Season 5 and possibly Season 6.
Kit: The important thing is that I now know exactly how long I am still under contract, and in the meantime-
Interviewer: How many more seasons would that be?
Kit: Nice try (laughs). I canâ€™t talk about that. Letâ€™s just say that Game of Thrones will remain a part of my life for a while, Iâ€™ll probably be in my thirties when itâ€™s over. One thingâ€™s for sure: the day Iâ€™m no longer on Thrones is the day Iâ€™ll bury myself in movie projects (laughs).
As of Season 5 of the show, Game of Thrones is in uncharted territory as they’ve exhausted what Martin has written so far. Jon Snow’s death in the final episode of the season took many fans by surprise, but Kit Harington has been spotted with the same Jon Snow hairdo for quite some time. This has hatched theories that he has a twin brother, which is reaching a bit, or the big one that Melisandre will resurrect him.
Has he died as Jon Snow he’ll be resurrected as Jon Stark and thus be freed from his oath at the Wall.
That sounds like the most realistic theory, but we’ll have to wait for Season 6 to be sure. However we do know that Jon Snow will remain on the show in one way or another.
