New interview for TheWrap, you can read more in this link and watch a behind the scenes video.
For years there have been fan theories about Jon Snow’s true parentage, and now it appears that the main theory is true: His mother is Lyanna Stark, Ned Stark’s brother, and his father is Rhaegar Targaryen. Do you have your own theories about what that’s going to mean in the long run?
I do, and I never really like expressing them. If I say what my theory is, then some people will take it as gospel because I play the character. And I also find it unhelpful in playing the character to theorize about it, because he doesn’t think too much about it. If he gets to know that truth at some point, which I hope he will, it will be a really fascinating moment to play.
So are you now waiting and wondering when Jon Snow is going to die for good?
[Laughs] Yeah. But here’s the thing: I feel like one of the safest people on Thrones now. Maybe I shouldn’t say that. He could die next season, but I felt very safe this season. Because if I come back to life in Episode 2, it would be awful storytelling if you kill me in Episode 4. So I felt a bit cocky this season.
