Despite having many veteran actors and strong characters, Jon Snow became a fan favorite. Amongst all the houses included in the series, Starks and Targaryen are the most popular, so it’s not a surprise that Kit Harington’s character is loved so much, as he belongs to both houses.


The fate of Jon Snow

Later in the show, Jon Snow becomes the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch and then allows the much-hated Wildings across the wall. So in the last episode of Season 5, angered by Jon Snow’s actions, the soldiers of the night’s watch betray their Lord Commander by stabbing him and uttering “For the Watch.”

Jon Snow was later revealed to be the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, making him one of the legal heirs to the Iron Throne.

With the next season arriving almost a year later, fans were terrified of the prospect of losing a character they followed all these years. Considering how the show has killed off the main character without a second thought, such as Eddard Stark, fans believed this was the end of Jon Snow.

Kit Harington escapes a speeding ticket

Between the period of seasons 5 and 6, Kit Harington was once pulled over by a cop, who also happened to be a big Game of Thrones fan, for overspeeding and was given two options. Describing the ordeal on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, he recounted what the cop said:


“You can either follow me back to the police station now where I’ll book you in, or you can tell me whether you (Jon Snow) live in the next [season] of Game of Thrones…”
