Jon Snow could famously know nothing, however the actor who performs him, Kit Harington, appears fairly sure about one factor — he does not wish to seem in any of the Game of Thrones spin-off exhibits.
HBO introduced earlier this yr that it wasn’t about to let its pretty white-walking money cow stroll off into that lengthy night time. Five completely different spin-off exhibits are being conceived, with one in all them already attending to the casting stage. None apart from Naomi Watts will star within the first spin-off (nonetheless untitled, although The Long Night has been rumored) which can happen a really very long time earlier than the occasions of the flagship present, and will depict the rise and fall of the age of heroes. So there will not be any dragons or Targaryens to be discovered.
Jon Snow would not be remotely near being born but on this time interval, and even when he was, there would not be any secret Targaryen aunts round for him to romance. Still, the BBC introduced up Game of Thrones (in addition to the thought of Harington showing in a spin-off) whereas the actor was selling his look in a West End manufacturing of Sam Shepard’s True West.
Harington appears to don’t have anything however love for his job of over 10 years, saying, “It was emotional to go away the job undoubtedly… however I would not say I used to be unhappy: If, like me, you go all the best way again to the pilot of Game of Thrones, that is nearly 10 years of your life…” Harington goes on to confess that on the planet of appearing, that is extremely uncommon.
However, he provides: “But would I want to go back and do more? Not on your life.”
Just to set the document straight, the BBC then pressed Harington additional and requested if he would contemplate “a single scene, maybe as an ancestor of Jon Snow.” His reply remained a agency no.
So the Kit within the North has spoken. Harington is having fun with his real-life marriage to Jon Snow’s former flame, Rose Leslie, and his ongoing work on the stage.
Alas, for those who’re dreaming of Naomi Watts getting steamy in a cave with Kit Harington, it is time to pop that individual balloon. The night time is darkish and shall be utterly devoid of Haringtons.
On a brilliant be aware although, Game of Thrones will return for its remaining season in April of 2019.
