Thrones star says there'll be 'more deaths this season than any other'

If you thought Game of Thrones didn’t get bloody or horrifying enough with last season’s shocking Red Wedding, think again.

Actor Kit Harington—who plays Jon “you know nothing” Snow on HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones—told Access Hollywood that there will be “more deaths this season than any other! I can’t tell you who dies. You’d think they’d tone the deaths down, but they don’t.”

[Insert the collective gasp of horror from Thrones fans everywhere.]

Harington added: "They've realised that's a successful option, so they're just killing more people than they've ever killed."

Well, that doesn’t bode well for many a character on the series. Which of our very own favorites will be going to the bloody chopping block next? Oh, the horror!

But (thankfully) it’s not all death, death and more death for the upcoming fourth season of the series. Harington teased that there will be "plenty of sex" as well for the fans. Especially for his character. "Me and Rose [Leslie], who plays Ygritte, we're as close to a love story as you get in the show."

Are you at all surprised that the death toll will rise for Game of Thrones’ upcoming fourth season?
