olly stabs jon snowBrenock O’Connor, known for his role as Olly on Game of Thrones has revealed that he and his family got death threats after his character stabbed Jon Snow to death in season 5 finale:

“The fallout on Twitter and other social media was not nice. If you get people from Spain and Portugal and all over the world saying they are going to kill your family, you just can’t take it to heart or you would not cope. My family just thinks it is people who wanted to say something, and because of social media, you can say it to people on other side of the world. It’s laughable how people think the show is realistic enough for them to send messages like this to someone who is not the character. I find it quite funny. I’m not Olly and I did not decide to stab Jon Snow!”

The 16 year old English actor told The Argus that such threats have no effect on him:

“It has no effect on me. You can either let it get you down or not think about it. It was such an incredible thing to have that reaction. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

O’Connor also said that he is thankful everyday for getting a part in Game of Thrones which has helped him land other roles such as Peter Cratchit in Dickensian and Rex Forster in Another Mother’s Son:

“I don’t want to shake off My Game of Thrones character. It is one of the reasons I have got other roles. Every day I’m thankful I got the part.”
