Game Of Thrones Jon Snow Return: Kit Harrington Says "Sorry" For Lying
Kit Harrington recently apologized for stretching out the truth on the subject of his Game of Thrones' character Jon Snow. The 29-year-old English actor exited the HBO series after the Lord Commander Snow was treacherously stabbed and left for dead during the culmination of Season 5.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
"I'd like to say sorry for lying to everyone. I'm glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care," Harrington told Entertainment Weekly interview via Variety after his character was raised from the dead in last Sunday's Game of Thrones' episode. The 29-year-old English actor apologized profusely in a video released to Entertainment Weekly, following Sunday night's episode.
"Or it would just be, 'Fine, Jon Snow's dead.' But it seems like people had a - similar to the 'Red Wedding' episode - kind of grief about it. Which means something I'm doing - or the show is doing - is right," he added. Harrington for his part had continuously denied that he will be ever appearing again in the show. After Snow's tragic death at the hands of his own men, the character immediately began an out of the ordinary following as fans embarked on a campaign to know what's in store for the Stark bastard.
Preceding to the rolling of the credits of Game of Thrones last Sunday, the Red Priestess, Melisandre, asked everyone to leave the room while a half-naked lifeless body of Snow was stretched out on a table. Melisandre can be observed as a bit apathetic to the whole ceremony but nevertheless, as the camera moved closely to Snow's face as he opened his eyes again and swallowed air - the revival was a success.
Immediately after the stunning ending, Game of Thrones fans broke the internet with countless social media postings and memes, according to the Daily Mail - who piled up the most riotous tweets on Twitter.
Twitter handle @SavChristie parodied Christian Evangelists with, 'Me going door to door tonight: Excuse me, ma'am, but have you heard about our risen Lord Commander and savior, Jon Snow?' Meanwhile, @AvaraHebert was all eager to get over-educated: 'Today is my 14 hour school day but all is fine because Jon Snow is alive ❄️ #JonSnowLives.'
