…as a corpse.
Yup. We caught up with Mr Harington for an interview that will run in April ahead of his lead role in the West End’s ‘Doctor Faustus’. Like fearless pros we asked him outright whether or not he’d filmed any new scenes for the sixth season of ‘Game of Thrones’, given speculation is rife as to the fate of the brooding Jon Snow and Harington has reportedly been on set in Northern Ireland.
Here is what he had to say
Kit Harington: 'Look, I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series.'
Time Out: 'So you didn’t film any new scenes?'
KH: 'I filmed some scenes of me being dead – [jokily] it’s some of my best work.'
TO: 'Do you know what happens in the series or have you lost your privileges?'
KH: 'I don’t have a clue. I know how long I’m a corpse for, but I can’t tell you that!’
So, er, there you have it. There is something slightly sussed sounding about getting a big star back to a show purely to pretend to be an inanimate body – especially with the implication he may do so in a number of episodes – but at the same time he was pretty unequivocal about not being in the show any more. We'll find out soon!
