"Game of Thrones" season seven is coming, and it looks like one of the show's main characters just hinted at a possible spoiler for pretty much the greatest fan theory in all of Westeros.
Kit Harington plays Jon Snow on "GoT," and the 30-year-old actor recently caught up with The Huffington Post to weigh in on the R + L = J theory, relating to Snow's lineage, and whether or not he is in fact "The Prince That Was Promised."
In case you forgot, R (Rhaegar Targaryen) + L (Lyanna Stark) = J (Jon Snow).
Now that we have that out of the way, we can talk about the "Game of Thrones" prophecy pertaining to this promised prince.
Basically, this prophecy states a hero, Azor Ahai, will be reborn to save everyone from complete destruction.
Yeah, you can certainly see why many "Game of Thrones" fans think Jon Snow is the "The Prince That Was Promised."
And, as far as saving the world, well, we know what's coming to try and kill every man, woman and child.
So, what does Jon Snow think about the task before him? Well, speaking on the R + L = J theory, actor Kit Harington said,
I think you have to wait and see what happens this year, and if we find out anything more about Jon. I think Jon would hate the term 'The Prince That Was Promised.' If someone turned to him and said, 'You're The Prince That Was Promised,' he just wouldn't pay much attention. That's what I love about him, so I don't really care about it either. You know, I think that's what's great about him. He's got very little ego on him.
Don't get discouraged by Harington's quote. This is classic Jon Snow talk, and Harington is clearly playing the role he's been crushing since 2011.
Thanks to the "Tower of Joy" flashback scene at the end of season six of "GoT," we know Jon Snow was born under the "bleeding star" (Ser Arthur Dayne's sword, Dawn).
We know Melisandre told Ser Davos Seaworth in season six Jon Snow is "The Prince That Was Promised."
While it doesn't appear Kit Harington was ready to own up to his role as the Prince, he did say season seven of "Game of Thrones" will "break boundaries."
I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see exactly what Jon Snow means.
