Jon Snow has died and lived again in Game of Thrones season 6. However, Kit Harington has the final say on the bastard of Winterfell’s fate and that may boil down to one thing.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Kit Harington said that he will walk away from the industry if he continues to experience the stereotype. “There’s a sexism that happens towards men,” he said. “There’s definitely a sexism in our industry that happens towards women, and there is towards men as well.”
He said that he’s been asked to do some things during filming or photo shoots that he might not be totally uncomfortable with. The 29-year-old claimed that he has been asked to show off his body in a number of shoots.
“If I felt I was being employed just for my looks, I’d stop acting,” he explained. “I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks. It’s demeaning.”
Jon Snow’s death has been debated about ever since he was stabbed in Game of Thrones season 5. But if there’s something fans should realize heading into season 6 is that death is a fleeting word in George R. R. Martin’s books.
Nevertheless, resurrection doesn’t come without any consequence, said Newsweek. The only thing to do now after seeing Jon Snow die and live again in Game of Thrones season 6 is whether or not he will be working for “light” or “dark.”
Meanwhile, Variety said that letting Jon Snow die and live again in Game of Thrones season 6 was a good decision because the supernatural nature of the series is what makes it addicting and intriguing to fans.
Game of Thrones season 6 airs Sundays on HBO.
