“I am most definitely dead, so it’s a simple one to answer, really.”
Kit Harington, who plays the role of Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, was recently interviewed by IGN and he spoke about how the question “Is Jon Snow Dead?” has affected his life, considering it is the only thing people ask him these days.
“Game of Thrones is this goliath show, and it has entered pop culture in this amazing way. I think my life is — I don’t see any different now that question became involved than before. It’s just a different catchphrase on the street. Rather than ‘You know nothing’, it’s ‘Are you dead?’ And I am most definitely dead, so it’s a simple one to answer, really. I don’t know, I love that show and I love that it’s done what it’s done, and it will follow me a lot longer than just this year. I can’t fight against that.”
Harington was also asked if all the leaked images and paparazzi photos of him drive him crazy or not.
“No, no. I mean, camera phones in general are the curse of the modern age. I don’t know what it’s doing for our brains or our lives, but I have a feeling it could be a very bad thing. So get me onto camera phones; I can run all day, but it’s something where, if you’re lucky enough to work as an actor and recognizable, you’re going to get photographed. That’s just what it is. Yes, of course it’s annoying. [laughs] But I can’t do anything about it. Everyone’s a f**king cameraman nowadays.”
