Sure, the actor has been spotted around Game of Thrones' filming locations, and still has his trademark long hair, but in case you still had any doubts, Harington finally admitted that he's not quite done with the HBO drama. While promoting his new movie Testament of Youth, Harington spoke with the Dutch-language Belgian magazine Humo, and thanks to a Reddit user (and Google) we have a translation.
The actor, who has had to pass on other projects because of the demands of working on Game of Thrones, said, "The show is like a double-edged sword to me: I owe a lot to it, but at the same time it has almost completely drained me. Oh well, I try not to think about it too much. The important thing is that I now know exactly how long I am still under contract."
Well, well, well. If he's still under contract, then there's still the promise of Jon Snow, knowing nothing for years to come. As for how much more, Harington would only tease, "Let's just say that Game of Thrones will remain a part of my life for a while, I'll probably be in my 30 when it's over."
Harington is currently 28 years old; therefore, there's a good chance he'll probably be sticking around for the remainder of the show's seven- to eight-season run.
Jon Snow was last seen in the series' Season 5 finale, bleeding out on the ground after being stabbed, possibly to death. Since then, everyone and their mother has tried to suss out if the bastard was indeed dead. Judging from Harington's comments, Jon Snow should return. Whether that means he'll be raised from the dead or not remains to be seen.
