Kit Harington isn’t ready to give anything away regarding the future of his iconic character Jon Snow from Game of Thrones. During a recent episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the host asked Harington about the validity of a rumor surrounding a possible spin-off series of GoT, centering on Jon Snow. The actor’s reaction left fans wondering!
While asked the question by host Jimmy Fallon, Kit Harington, 36, first smiled and scratched his ear and then asked Fallon if he would want to have a spin-off show on Jon Snow. The rumor started to spread in June 2022 after The Hollywood Reporter revealed that a sequel spin-off series about Jon Snow was in early development. Although Harington remained tight-lipped about any possible reprisal of his iconic role, he might have lightly teased the planned series while telling Fallon that he couldn’t say anything about it.
Amusing the fans, Kit Harington went on a light-hearted route to discuss the topic. He jokingly admitted that the only reason he would consider doing a Jon Snow-centric GoT spin-off is to get more public attention. Cheekily, the actor revealed that it hurts his ego when he gets a little less recognized on the streets nowadays. He also teased that he’s even pretty close to putting on some fur to resemble the look of Jon Snow in public. Harington then hilariously continued by saying that he would agree to do the highly anticipated spin-off the day he’d get asked to sign a low number of photos. Joining Kit Harington, host Jimmy Fallon quickly requested Harington’s fans to stop asking him to sign a photo for the next two days, so that they all can get a definite answer by the following Monday, making Harington finally ready to do the Jon Snow spin-off! A great plan indeed!
