Emilia Clarke, who starred as Daenerys in Game of Thrones, thinks Jon Snow got away with murder.
As you might recall, in the last season of Game of Thrones, Jon Snow assassinated Daenerys after she had scorched King’s Landing to ruins, murdering most of the city’s population.
As a consequence of Snow taking out the insane tyrant, Snow was initially put in prison before leaving Westeros forever to live beyond the wall – like so many killers and criminals before him.
Emilia Clarke, however, thinks Snow got away with murder and has sympathy for her own character. Speaking to The Times, she said: “Yeah, I felt for her. I really felt for [Daenerys] her, and yeah, was I annoyed that Jon Snow didn’t have to deal with something? He got away with murder — literally.”
It’s natural for actors to be biased towards their own characters, of course, but perhaps she’s right, maybe Jon got off lightly and him ridding the world of a bloodthirsty dragon rider should have been more severely punished.
