Game of Thrones ended over a year ago, and the fans miss the show terribly. Though there are prequel series in works, the original characters will always hold a special place in everyone’s hearts. One of them being Jon Snow, who is currently trending on Twitter, and fans are baffled as to why.
Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, is easily one of the most famous and lovable characters on the show Game of Thrones. All was well on Twitter until Netflix caused a stir with the following tweet:
Please don’t ask us why Jon Snow is trending. We know nothing.

The fans were bewildered at the tweet. Everyone was guessing the cause and no one could figure out why. Some even called out Netflix for playing with their emotions! It seems like fans haven’t got enough of Jon Snow yet.

Most of the fans linked it to the recent release of the trailer of Criminals season 2, starring Kit Harington. Kit Harington played Jon Snow for all the 8 seasons of Game of Thrones. Criminals season 2 also stars Kunal Nayyar, Sophie Okonedo and Sharon Horgan. Kit shines in his role as a convicted real estate agent.
Kit Harington starts his episode of Criminal S2 with a 6-minute, one-shot monologue looking straight down the camera. Here’s some of it. He clearly knows *some* things. pic.twitter.com/TmJ0HurLAE

While others linked the trend to seasonal change. A pun directed at a famous line from the show. Something that only a Stark would say,
“Winter is coming.”
Jon Snow trending because Winter is coming 😂😂😂😂 #JonSnow pic.twitter.com/bUDsyBsn43

Even though it seems confusing, fans are surely having fun toying around with ideas. Whatever may the reason be, Jon Snow trending after such a long time reflects the popularity of the character and show.

Game of Thrones has a long list of memorable characters, and since we know how infamous George R. R. Martin is for killing off fan favourites, some lucky ones did manage to get away with their lives at the end of the series. One of them was Jon Snow’s wildling buddy Tormund Giantsbane, played by Kristofer Hivju. It seems like Hivju’s new adventures into the wild have drastically altered his appearance, at least that’s what Henry Cavill says.
Netflix recently released The Witcher season 2 trailer, and we get a brief look at Hivju, who will play Nivellen in the show. It’s all prosthetics and CGI magic but Henry Cavill insists that this is Hivju’s true appearance.

A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill)
“The amazing, the wonderful, the electric and the enigmatic Kristofer Hivju. Kristofer was extraordinarily brave for season 2 of The Witcher and decided to play his character of Nivellen with zero make-up or visual effects, as you can see above. Kristofer, we are all so proud,” Cavill wrote.
Nivellen is an important character in The Witcher lore as he appears in Andrzej Sapkowski’s short story A Grain of Truth, He is the first “monster” Geralt of Rivia encounters who isn’t really a monster. Interestingly, the character is based on the Beast in, you guessed it, Beauty and the Beast.
The Witcher Season 2 will premiere on Netflix on December 17, 2021.

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington rose to fame with his role Jon Snow, and has become a household name ever since. Though Jon Snow was admired for his bravery and heroism on the show, he was often ridiculed and later became a meme template for the internet for not knowing a lot of things. And it seems like Harington has absorbed that part of his character a bit too much.
In a recent interview with Total Film, Kit Harington talked about his character, Dane Whitman, from Marvel’s Eternals. And eventually the discussion turned to Game of Thrones. He said:
“I’ve got no idea whether my character goes on or not. I had read up on who he could be, or might be. So there’s the possibility for a longer trajectory. And hopefully, I think this is the tip of the iceberg for my character. I hope. But I just don’t know, you know? I’m as in the dark as anyone else. And I try not to live too far ahead in the future with anything. Even when I was in Game of Thrones, even on the sixth season, I presumed the seventh season wasn’t going to happen!”
Whether it is defending the earth from cosmic entities, or holding the ground for Castle Black, Harington seems to be clueless (or acting coy) about a lot of stuff. What do you think? Talk to us in the comments below!
Game of Thrones had several characters who started off as little kids and later blossomed into the bold personas we know and love so much. The child actors who were part of the show also grew up with it as the seasons progressed, and many of them have successful careers now. British-Brazilian actor Lino Facioli became famous after his role ‘Robin Arryn‘ in Game of Thrones. But recently, he’s in the limelight for his new character in the Netflix series ‘Sex Education’, and fans don’t seem to get enough of him.
Now much older, Facioli is on our screens again, this time as Moordale High student Dex Thompson – a nerdy teen who competes in the high school quiz team alongside Maeve Wiley.
He’s also whipped his kit off in the latest season, and a lot of viewers are finding it difficult to process that it’s the same person who played little Robin Arryn in Game of Thrones. Here’s what they have to say:
