Kit Harington Has Lied To 'Game Of Thrones' Fans Before, So We Shouldn't Believe Him About Jon Snow
Whether I believe it solely for my sanity or because there are strong theories suggesting it, there can be no way that Jon Snow is dead dead on Game of Thrones, despite what actor Kit Harington says. With so much evidence stacked up to make it seem like Jon Snow will return, it appears the beautiful Kit Harington is lying to fans of Game of Thrones when he says he won't be back to the HBO show. And, while I don't want Harington to sue me for libel (although, it would get me closer to him...), the Jon Snow actor has set a precedent for not always telling the public the truth.
Although Harington is typically candidly adorable in interviews (I'm sorry, Kit — I know you don't like being objectified), his humbleness can lead to some misleading statements. While Harington has said he won't be back for Season 6 of Game of Thrones, that doesn't mean he will never return to the show, and that's what fans are hoping for. While fans wait to see if any of the Jon Snow-resurrection theories come true, you can still see Harington on HBO opposite Andy Samberg in the mockumentary 7 Days in Hell in July. And, until then, let's check out six other times Harington misled us, because if it's happened before, maybe it can happen again. (Jon Snow can't be dead. He just can't.)
1. When He Called His Hair "Pretty Horrible"
To be fair, he was explaining to GQ how he wouldn't wash his hair for six weeks while he was filming to get his famous looks to look "greasy and medieval." But, every Harington fan knows his hair could never look any sort of "horrible."
2. When He Said Sophie Turner Was Lying About His Hair
His hair is a big point of contention for Harington. Sansa actress Sophie Turner said that Harington was obsessed with his locks and admires his curls in the mirror. When Vulture asked him about Turner's comments, he laughingly said, "The girl is lying." Maybe she was, maybe she wasn't. Either way, let's take a moment to imagine Harington coiffing those curls in the mirror.
3. When He Said He Was Less Popular Than Rose Leslie
In that article with Entertainment Weekly where he said he wouldn't be returning for Season 6, EW asked if he was given any parting gifts after he finished shooting his last scene. Harington replied, "No! Rose [Leslie, who portrayed Jon's love interest Ygritte] got a f**king bow and arrow and I didn’t get s**t! So yeah, I’m definitely less popular than Rose." I love me some Rose Leslie, but I sincerely doubt that he isn't equal to her popularity. Plus, perhaps the lack of parting gift means he isn't actually done on the show??
4. When He Made It Seem Like Love Is Hard For Him To Find
Harington talked to Page Six about his love life in March and he said, "I’m single and I have been for a while ... I’m trying not only to search for the love of my life, but to learn to be happy with myself and who I am as a person ... Hopefully that lovely lady will come along one day." Uh, pretty sure there are a million women and girls out there who are confident that they are the love of your life, Harington. (Or that at least you should get back together with Rose Leslie.)
5. When He Lied To Zach Braff
Zach Braff ran into Harington at a bar with Ed Sheeran and asked the actor all about Game of Thrones. But, as Braff told E! News, Harington was an expert at not revealing any spoilers about the season finale to Braff. Although this could be filed under the category of "lying by omission" and not straight-up lying, I'm using it anyway. (Desperate times call for desperate measures.)
6. When He Said His Game Of Thrones Counterpart Was Wiser Than Him
Harington was asked on HuffPost Live if he could make the same tough decisions as Jon Snow (like not going along with Stannis to become Jon Stark) and he responded with, "Jon's actually a lot wiser than me in many ways." Well, Harington, considering you're alive, I think you may have more street smarts than the beloved Jon Snow. So Harington, you obviously know something more than Jon Snow... and that's definitely a good thing. Now, let's just hope you're not telling the truth about your show fate. It's a lie we would totally forgive you for.
