So, you know, spoiler warning...

Sean Bean was hunted down by Vulture at the Turner upfronts in New York this week, and brought up previous comments by Bean about the parentage of one Jon Snow.

Back in 2014, Bean was casually and joking but not joking about lobbying for his return to Game of Thrones, saying: "I've definitely got some unfinished business that needs to be resolved there," he argued. "I'm obviously not Jon Snow's dad. And you need that to be revealed at some point, don't you?"

Cut to May 2015, and Bean now being confronted with what we currently know about Jon Snow from all the allusions that season five of Thrones has made about his lineage (here's looking at you Red Woman), and Bean dropped a bombshell, saying "He’s not my child. He isn’t. That's what I suspected all along."

While we tend to agree with him, we also recognise that Bean hasn't been in the Thrones camp for the last four years, and seeing as the producers have now stated that the show is moving away more definitely from the books, whether that turns out to be true is yet to be seen.

As for what Bean had to say about how that will affect Jon Snow, and how he might react to the news that Eddard Stark is not his father, he had this to say. "Probably a bit psychologically confused, I would imagine! I think that’s probably an interesting journey for Jon Snow as a character and for [Kit Harington] as the actor. He’s been very fortunate in being one of the characters that had a very meaty, substantial, very complex story to be able to discover for himself. He’s been lucky to survive!"

As we're constantly being told though, no one is safe on this show. We wouldn't be surprised if the show ended with everyone dying and the dragons having a great aul feast.
