Ah, the enviable life of a celebrity: champagne by a pool in Ibiza, private jest to premiers, having to answer “I don’t know” to every question you are asked to not spoil the upcoming season of your show, spending your days off shooting fake scenes to throw off paparazzi. It all seems so magical.
Kit Harington, who plays Jon Snow on “Game of Thrones” was tight lipped during his interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, but did reveal that he had shot some fake scenes just to throw off the fans and paparazzi. Each scene took around five hours to shoot and he had to do them on his days off.
Not only does this throw the spoiler hounds off the scent, but sounds absolutely brutal. Imagine having to fake work for five hours on your day off just so people can see you working. On top of that, you have to do things that aren’t even your job, that don’t even matter.
Harrington then revealed that there are no real penalties if you do spoil the show, other than disappointing HBO and the show’s writers. There’s no financial penalty for revealing spoilers! In a way, they hold your character’s future in their hands, so I guess that’s not a fire you would ever want to poke.
He also told a story about attending a music festival with a large chunk of the GoT cast whilst singing “We Are Family”. Wait, what does that mean? Is Jon Snow a dragon? TELL US!!!!!!
I guess we’ll just have to wait for the 16th. Boooo.
