Owen Teale and Jacob Anderson shared their thoughts about whether Kit Harington will be reprising his role as Jon Snow in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. New reports confirm that Harington is currently in Belfast, where filming for the popular TV series has just started. [Spoiler alert]
In a recent interview with Greek publication Athinorama, Teale, who plays Alliser Thorne, confirmed his return to the show in the next Season. According to the translation of the interview by WinterIsComing, the actor has complimented the TV series for making the viewers “deal with feelings of death and loss.”
The actor is said to be facing some heat from the fans who had grown attached to Jon Snow. The report notes that apart from Olly (Brenock O’Connor) and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) Alliser is the most hated character on the show. “I’ll always be the man who killed Jon Snow,” Teale said in the interview. The actor is said to be getting some “long hard looks” by the fans who recognize him from the show.
Talking about the possibility of Jon Snow’s return in “Game of Thrones” Season 6, Teale said that the producers haven’t shared any details about the character’s future with him. He, however, felt that bringing the character back from the dead would make the show “a soap opera that does not know how to finish.”
One fellow cast member who is optimistic of Jon Snow’s return is Anderson, who plays Grey Worm. Speaking to GayTimes, the actor said he doesn’t know what happens next to the character, but anything is possible. Anderson said that he would put his money on the character returning.
Speculation is rife about the future of Harington’s character and fans have been keeping an eye on the length of his hair as a clue about his possible return. The actor is contractually obligated to keep his hair long for the show. According to a report by WatchersOnTheWall, the actor has been spotted in Belfast along with fellow cast member Nathalie Emmanuel, who plays Missandei.
The report notes that Harington’s hair is still “long and lustrous,” but the actor seems to not want his pictures to be taken. He is said to be protesting the possibility of Jon Snow’s return in “Game of Thrones” Season 6.
