Apparently, we knew nothing!
So much so that when you see him in any other film, even his recent HBO tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, he just seems wrong without being bundle up in fur looking so deep in thought!
That’s what makes this news so hard to wrap our heads around! It was recently revealed that there was ANOTHER GoT star who almost landed the part of the Jon Snow instead of the luscious-locked Harington!
None other than Iwan Rheon, who plays Ramsay Snow/Bolton on the show, was actually quite close to getting the part of our FAVORITE Snow!
“I auditioned for the pilot of Game of Thrones, and was down to the last two for Jon Snow, so I guess they knew me.”
He went on to say that when he was originally cast as his current character, he was only given the title of “Boy” so that it didn’t spoil the plan to bring the character of Ramsay Snow into Game of Thrones. Rheon said:
“But Ramsay is the complete polar opposite. In my mind, I secretly thought it was Ramsay.”
We probably love Jon as much as we hate Ramsay, but we still give props to Rheon for making despise his character for being one of the most vile and disgusting characters on the show!
As much as we love both men, we think they ended up where they were meant to be. We can’t imagine Rheon having the same impact on us, but who knows!
As for Harington’s fate, we’re definitely team #JonSnowLives!
