In the new edition of Greek publication Athinorama, Owen Teale talks season 6 and killing Jon Snow.
Teale is in Greece to make a film called Nocturne with director Konstantinos Frangopoulos, whom he previously worked with on a short film called “A Meeting at Last.”
When asked if he’s in the sixth season of Game of Thrones, the actor answers yes though he’s unclear on when he’ll be filming.
Teale remarks that he’ ll “always be the man who killed Jon Snow.” Athinorama asks if Jon Snow is dead, of course and Teale says that he actually doesn’t know, and he’s relieved that he doesn’t have to tell any lies!
Teale tells Athinorama:
In a movie or fiction series you are free to do anything. In that way though you take out the drama, because there is no real life or death. This is what makes GoT different. The audience can really feel death and loss. I really miss Jon Snow and Kit who played him. But if he came back to life, the show would turn into a soap opera that wouldn’t know how to come to an end.

Speaking of actors and their Jon Snow thoughts, the subject comes up in Jacob Anderson aka Raleigh Ritchie’s new interview with Gay Times.
Anderson talks about his blossoming music career, music festivals, hip hop and weighs in on everyone’s favorite topic (not Kanye at Glastonbury though he does talk about that as well).
Gay Times says: “We can’t speak to someone from Game of Thrones without asking this. Jon Snow – is he dead?”
Anderson/Ritchie: “I’m waiting for find out myself. If I had to put money on it then I’d say no. I think anything is possible but I promise you that’s not a hint.”
And in “Are you serious?” news, there’s a new Game of Thrones-related app forthcoming. As Entertainment Weekly says, “The app was designed after focus groups suggested to the publisher the need for a way to read A Song of Ice and Fire without actually reading A Song of Ice and Fire.”
