The theory that “Jon Snow lives!” is seeming more and more likely these days. Kit Harington has been spotted out and about in Belfast, Northern Ireland – where much of Game of Thrones is filmed – and is still sporting his signature Snow long locks. In the last few days, eagle-eyed Belfast fans have been treated to yet another clue as to the character’s fate: his body-double is strolling through the streets of the town!
Even though everyone, including the show’s producers and Harington himself, say that Jon Snow is dead, there have been many reports of the actor spending time in Belfast - coincidentally while read-throughs and early filming have taken place. His long hair has also remained intact, despite Harington complaining that he wouldn’t be allowed to cut it until his time on Game of Thrones was up. This latest sighting just adds more fuel to the fan theories that Jon Snow will soon be back on our screens.
What are your theories? Is it coincidence, misdirection, or proof that Jon will be alive and well – or, at least, not permanently dead – when the new season premieres next year? I’d love to hear your ideas in the comments!
