Jon Snow is Ned’s bastard, though his father refuses to discuss who Jon’s mother was, a mystery that hangs over the series. He was raised at Winterfell but was never made to feel a member of the Stark family, thanks to Catelyn. His future is uncertain, should he remain at Winterfell.
“Jon is a tortured young man,” said Kit Harington. “He has been raised as a rich son of a lord but has no title and will inherit nothing… He will always be an outsider… Because of this, he has a constant struggle between his ambition to be more than a bastard and his loyalty to his family… He is an honest, loyal, and strong man with a huge weight around his neck.”
Favorite moment: “Walking onto the Castle Black set for the first time,” said Harington. “There was also a moment when I was riding through the woods on horseback and I found myself alone, at night, with a sword, in a cloak… and I thought, ‘This is cool.’”
