Brooding dreamboat with excellent cloak game, Kit Harington, is most well known for his role in the little-known, old-timey, war and sex-fest, Game Of Thrones as Jon Snow.
So it stands to reason that, for fans, the lines between Harington and Snow have become pretty blurred. But what about professional BBC presenters? Surely they don’t make errors that make an, otherwise textbook, interview crazy-awkward?
Ehhhhhh sort of. At least Bill Turnbull might, anyway. Interviewing Kit Harington about his new play and a bit about GoT, the interview went swimmingly… except when, at the end, he turned to Kit and said “Thanks very much, Jon”. Harington took it on the chin as Turnbull emphatically tried to cover his back. Very awkward.
The highlight is in the closing seconds when you see the shame in poor Bill’s eyes.
You could say… He made a Bill Turn-Balls-Up!
Kit also confirmed in an interview with Digital Spy that Jon Snow, as we’ve long suspected, is very much dead and that “fans should get used to it”:
“People didn’t want me to die, but he’s dead. So there you go, everyone has to get used to it.”
Looks like Bill, and the rest of us, need to move on…
