Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington: there will be more deaths than ever in series four

Star says the writers are "killing more people than they've ever killed" in the aftermath of series three's gruesome Red Wedding


If you thought the brutal and bloodthirsty ending to Game of Thrones series three was bad, you can think again. 


Kit Harington, the 26-year-old British actor who plays Jon Snow, has said that there will be “more deaths this season than any other.”

“More?!”, we hear you cry, since the infamous Red Wedding saw LOADS of our favourite characters meet grisly ends. But it seems the makers of the hit HBO fantasy drama just don’t care…

“You’d think they’d tone the deaths down, but they don’t,” Harington revealed to Access Hollywood. “They’ve realised that’s a successful option, so they’re just killing more people than they’ve ever killed.” Eek.

Fans of Thrones’ more intimate scenes will be pleased, though: it’s not going to be all blood and gore in season four. There will be “plenty of sex” too, especially for Harington’s character: “Me and Rose, who plays Ygritte, we’re as close to a love story as you get in the show.”

The fourth series of Game of Thrones is expected to air in early 2014. The drama is shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
