Kit Harington Auditions for Other GoT Roles


Across six seasons of Game of Thrones, residents of the continent of Essos have learned it is unwise to mess with Daenerys Targaryen. The last time we saw him he was gathering forces to prepare for a battle - both against the undead and the Stark enemies.

A wise, fictional character unassociated with the "Game of Thrones" franchise once said something along the lines of, "Some people just want to watch the world burn". It's not Winterfell, but a field full of dudes stabbing and slicing at each other with horses running amok, more or less. Then you've got recurring characters like Gemma Whelan's Yara Greyjoy and Jacob Anderson's Grey Worm who we'll still be seeing plenty of in season 7. The newest bunch gives us a closer look at what to expect on this Sunday's premiere.

We can't say we're surprised Cersei needs a flagon or two of Westeros's finest mead. The images feature mostly new angles of photos that we've already seen from the past press releases.

Jon Snow's resurrection: In one of the most epic GoT scenes, Jon Snow is groomed (!) back to life by the witchy Melisandre.

Jon Snow (Kit Harington): Now that we know Jon Snow is the son of Lyanna Stark, and he's been named the King of the North, it should all be smooth sailing for the curly-headed one, right?

The first episode of season 7 will be broadcast in the United Kingdom on Monday 17 July 2017 at 2am on Sky Atlantic. Recall that Season 2 ended with Sam coming face to face with an army of White Walkers. We also see Brienne of Tarth and Podrick in a duel practice in the courtyard (or maybe even fighting about something real this time).

But there's no guarantees fire wights follow the same rules, so it's going to be a guessing game until Game of Thrones answers this burning question (pun totally intended). There is also a picture of Meera Reed.

"Game of Thrones" season 7 returns on July 16 on HBO, with a simulcast on Sky Atlantic on July 17 at 2 a.m. EDT and at 9 p.m. EDT on the same day. Joe had quite an important role in season 3, but we haven't seen Gendry since. Game of Thrones is every Monday on Sky Atlantic.
