Game of Thrones: Kit Harington wants to see this season 1 character resurrected

It’s not Ned. (Sorry, Ned.)

Posted on

The Stark children know a thing or two about Westeros’ high death toll — and if Melisandre (Carice van Houten) were still at Winterfell, they’d be first in line with a few requests for who they want her to resurrect.

During EW’s Stark reunion cover shoot, Kit Harington (whose Jon Snow, of course, has plenty of experience with coming back from the dead) unexpectedly went all the way back to season 1 to find a nominee. And in a Thrones-worthy twist, he even chose someone he never shared scenes with: Harry Lloyd’s Viserys Targaryen, Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) brother who memorably got offed by Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa) via a molten crown burning through his skull. Why? Because Viserys would “kick up some trouble,” Harington muses. Some trouble, maybe, but definitely not enough to take down the Mother of Dragons.

As for the other surviving Starks, well, Maisie Williams (Arya) wants to see Ygritte (Rose Leslie) make a fiery return, Sophie Turner (Sansa) wishes for Oberyn (Pedro Pascal) to slither back onto the show, and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran) keeps it in the family with Richard Madden’s Young Wolf. “Robb Stark,” he says, “because then we could have a slightly better reunion.”

Sadly, no one thought to vote for a direwolf.

Watch the video above. Game of Thrones returns July 16 on HBO.
