After six seasons, dozens of deaths, countless sex scenes, and family trees that have branches were still confused about, it’s difficult to imagine Game of Thrones’ lead characters being played by any other actors.
With the premiere of Season 7 just a few days away, GoT fans everywhere are preparing for the return of Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, Arya Stark, Jon Snow and more. But what would the upcoming season look like if these characters were portrayed by someone else? We’re now getting an ‘exclusive’ peek at what that would look like and it’s not pretty. Unlike just about any episode of Game of Thrones, it is, on the other hand, hilarious.
Actor Kit Harington, who has famously played the morally righteous, and thus far un-killable, Jon Show for six seasons, appeared on Live! With Jimmy Kimmel this week. The late-night host did his best to pull spoiler information out of Harington about the upcoming season of GoT, but true to his character, Harington pretended to know nothing.
Side note: as for Kimmel’s question about what happens if you leak any information about Game of Thrones, the answer is that you could be fired.
While Harington kept his interview spoiler-free, including whether or not he will appear in season eight of Game of Thrones (we can’t take another Jon Snow death, we just can’t!), he did agree to share his never before seen audition tape for the HBO show. Mostly, it’s never been seen because it was just made.
In the hilarious clip, Harington shows off his range by portraying the shows’ most famous female characters. Harington even takes on the role of the beloved Hodor, while also using some strategically placed shaving cream to play a white walker. Scary.
