Sean Bean Confirmed That ‘Game Of Thrones’ Fan Theory About Jon Snow’s Parents


For those of you who’ve blissfully been turning a blind eye to every single website that’s published something along the lines of “This CRAAAAZZYY fan theory explains Jon Snow’s lineage!”, well now’s the time to actually read up on ’em. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch the video below for a refresher.

Anyhoo, in an interview with Vulture yesterday he dropped that he pretty much believes the theory to be true.

Since you’re almost done shooting Legends, that might mean you have a window in your schedule if Game of Thrones needs you back. There are flashbacks that they could be doing for season five …

[Excited] Are they? Really?

I could be wrong, but I think they might show flashbacks via Bran’s connection to the heart trees.

Oh, yeah, yeah! And I’m his father, so that would be great fun! Just to go back to that for a while, it would be such fun to do. It would be great! It would be bizarre, but it would be great! So I guess if they’re going to do flashbacks, then yeah!

Well, it’s just my theory …

But it’s a good theory! And that should happen, shouldn’t it? I’ve definitely got some unfinished business that needs to be resolved there. I’m obviously not Jon Snow’s dad. And you need that to be revealed at some point, don’t you? So Bran would kind of be the one having the flashback, and he would see Ned praying, right? And revealing those things? You never know what those guys are going to do with that. It’s got to be something special. But I’m into that. I certainly would be into that. Print that! Give them a nudge. [Laughs.] Hopefully I’ll get a call soon.

If Sean Bean thinks the whole thing is obvious, well then that’s good enough for me. Hopefully Jon won’t get slaughtered off before it’s revealed, because if he does I’ll probably spend a week locked in a dark room crying about how life isn’t fair.

Don’t worry Jon, I’ll be your friend. Snow 4 lyfe bitchez.
