John Snow actor Kit Harrington talks about the character’s relationship with the newly introduced Ygritte, as well as season two in general:
It’s a tempestuous relationship. I’m not allowed to go into details, but I will say that it’s nice for John to meet a woman, I think… Episode nine is a big episode… He gets to fight more. In season one it was all training yard stuff, and now the world he’s going into it’s much more real. The fighting he has to do is for real, it’s not play fighting.
He said that he doesn’t share any more scenes with Peter Dinklage, but he did praise his new costars Simon Armstrong and Rose Leslie, who play Qhorin Halfhand and Ygritte respectively.
