Kit Harington (Jon Snow) recently appeared for an interview with BBC radio and got a call from a ‘huge fan’ who turned out to be none other than his on-screen half-sister on Game of Thrones– Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). Check out the video below.
Robert Aramayo will reprise his role as young Ned Stark for episodes 6 and 10 of Game of Thrones season 6, Hull Daily Mail has confirmed. Aramayo first appeared in the episode Oathbreaker which featured the first part of Tower of Joy flashback. With the Three eyed raven dead and Bran finally out of the cave, it will be interesting to see how the show addresses flashbacks in coming episodes.
The article also mentions that he will have a significant role in episode 10 so we might see a different flashback of young Ned in the upcoming episode and may have to wait till the season finale to find out what happened inside the Tower of Joy.
** Spoilers and speculation below **
As we saw in the episode 3, Tower of Joy is a location in northern part of Dorne where Lyanna Stark was kept by Rhaegar Targaryen. At the end of Robert’s Rebellion, Ned Stark led the raid on the tower along with his companions and ‘defeated’ the guarding Kingsguards. After entering the tower, Ned found his sister dying and she claimed a promise from him before she died.
Fans believe that the promise was an infant Jon Snow and he is actually the son of the Rhaegar and Lyanna (R+L=J). Ned’s promise was to never reveal Jon’s identity as Robert would have probably killed Jon if he came to know about his true parentage and therefore raised him as his bastard son. With Jon coming back to life in the second episode, it will be interesting to see if there is any truth to the most popular Game of Thrones fan theory.
There is also an alternate version of theory which claims Lyanna had twins and we met the other twin in last episode. Read about it here.
Iwan Rheon, Danny Trejo and Steve Buscemi collaborated for this featurette for Red Nose Day and sing a song about how they are really nice guys in real life. Check out the video below. (If the below video is unavailable click here)
