At the end of the interview, he told the actor: “Thanks very much, Jon”, before quickly realising his mistake and correcting himself, much to the amusement of Louise.
Apologising profusely for the “terrible” gaffe, he then tried to make a joke of it, remarking: “What’s that line? I know you, Kit Harington.”
Watch the full interview above, with the name confusion occurring around the 6:54 mark.
Before his unfortunate slip-up, Bill took the opportunity to grill
Jon Kit about his character’s fate as, despite the fact Kit Jon violently died in the last series finale, there has been much fan speculation about whether he’d be back for series six later this year. Jon Kit was giving nothing away, though, teasing simply: “I think anyone who wants to know what happens in season six has to wait until it comes out. All I can tell you is Jon Snow is dead. He died at the end of the last season.”
Speculation was particularly rife when
Kit Jon appeared in a recent trailer for the sixth series of ‘Game Of Thrones’, having already been spotted in Belfast, where the series is filmed.
‘Game Of Thrones’ returns to screens in the spring.
