With the tenth and final episode of 'Game of Thrones' Season Five set to air soon, one of the show's stars, Kit Harrington, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to see how other people impersonated his character.
'Game of Thrones' is massive, with widespread appeal to a huge audience of millions of fans. While the fifth season has been getting a bit of flack recently, one of the few characters to still have massive support from fans is Jon Snow. The Stark outcast and current Lord Commander of the Night's Watch, tasked with keeping the realms of men safe from the undead White Walkers, is certainly a fan favourite, along with Daenerys Targaryen - the Mother of Dragons - and Tyrion Lannister - the fast-talking, rich, and highly intelligent dwarf.
Kit Harrington is Jon Snow in HBO's 'Game of Thrones'
Part of what makes actor Kit Harrington's portrayal of Jon Snow so favourable with fans is (aside from his contract-bound hair) his deep, Northern English accent. An accent which is easily recognisable, yet hard to reproduce. In a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Harrington appeared on the show, and saw what some of the fans thought of the voice.
Kimmel had three guests lined up, each of them having made a name for themselves online with their 'Game of Thrones' impersonations. They then were asked to read something different and uninteresting in the voice of Jon Snow. The first read the back of a box of Frosties cereal, the second read a description of a house that was for sale, and the third read the back-end of a bottle of shampoo.
Harrington and Kimmel both found great amusement in the three performances - the third most of all, as he also gave an impersonation of Varys, Littlefinger, and Samwell Tarly. Harrington gave some comments on the performances, most notably discussing the second performer's near-perfect eyebrow acting. With Kit Harrington's acting schedule becoming more and more full over time, it appears there are at least three people who could replace him if he ever decided to leave the show.
The episode took place on Thursday 11th June, 2015. 'Game of Thrones' will air it's Season Five finale on Sunday 14th June, 2015.
