Emilia Clarke teased about how Kit Harington’s character Jon Snow could return in “Game of Thrones” Season 6. Meanwhile, Brenock O’Connor also spoke about filming the death scene of Jon and talked about what he would like the character to do in the next season. [Spoiler Alert!]
Speaking to MTV, Clarke said that she cried after reading the script and called the show creators and executive producers Dan Weiss and David Benioff to express her shock. She also revealed that she took her fellow cast member Harington for “numerous drinks.”
The executive producers apparently feel that Clarke can’t lie well and so they haven’t told her what happens next with regard to Harington’s character. She did say that if she had to bet, there is a 50-50 chance that Jon Snow would return. “There are some helpful people there who could bring him back to life,” Clarke said.
The actress later joked that if the death of Jon Snow means that her character, Daenerys Targaryen, is closer to sitting on the Iron Throne, then she is OK with it. The character who may be in a position to bring Harington’s character back to life in Season 6 is Melisandre, played by Carice Van Houten, who is also at Castle Black.
Castle Black is the location where Jon Snow was betrayed by some of the members of the Night’s Watch, and the one who stabbed him last was O’Connor’s character, Olly. Speaking to Flicks and the City, the young actor explained how some of the scenes in the show were filmed and what he would like to see in Season 6.
The actor said he would like to see Benjen Stark (Joseph Mawle) come back as a member of the army of the dead from beyond the Wall and fight Jon Snow. Talking about returning as Olly next year, he said that his character may not allow the Wildlings to settle in his old village and he would go out and attempt to kill some of them and probably die in the process.
He said that this scenario in Season 6 would be interesting, as it opens up the possibility of another war with the Wildlings, and also Jon Snow may come to save Olly, while the White Walkers attack from beyond the Wall.
