In an interview with EW, Harington said, "I’d like to say sorry for lying to everyone. I’m glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care. Or it would just be, ‘Fine, Jon Snow’s dead.’ But it seems like people had a, similar to the Red Wedding episode, kind of grief about it. Which means something I’m doing — or the show is doing — is right."
Harington will also be appearing on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, which will be revealed on Monday morning. Game of Thrones airs on Sunday nights at 9 PM ET on HBO.
