NO Daenerys Targaryen in Jon Snow sequel as 'GoT' star Emilia Clarke rules out possibility of a cameo
For those who hoped there would be a Daenerys Targaryen cameo or an appearance in Kit Harington's Jon Snow sequel, there's disappointing news. The 'Game of Thrones' star inadvertently spilled some beans on the latest show while also reportedly confirming that she would not return to the franchise. Per the New York Post, Harington's show has all the pieces falling in place and is rumored to have a working title as well.
In an interview with the BBC, Clarke confirmed that Harington will reprise his role as Jon Snow in a spin-off centered around the fan-favorite hero. “He has told me about it. And I know it exists,” Clarke told the news outlet. “It’s happening.” However, she was also quick to realize that she gave too much away. “It’s been created by Kit as far as I can understand, so he’s in it from the ground up. So what you will be watching, hopefully, if it happens, is certified by Kit Harington.”

Also adding more depth to the reports was 'GoT' creator RR Martin who said the show's reported working title was called Snow. "Yes, there is a Jon Snow show in development,” Martin wrote Thursday on his personal blog. “Our working title for the show is SNOW.” (via Deadline). He also added that it was the actor's idea to move ahead with another show.
“Yes, it was Kit Harrington (sic) who brought the idea to us,” Martin wrote. “I cannot tell you the names of the writers/showrunners since that has not been cleared for release yet… but Kit brought them in too, his own team, and they are terrific.”
“SNOW has been in development almost as long as the other three, but for whatever reason, it was never announced and it never leaked… until now,” he added. "That’s all I can tell you about SNOW just now. If HBO says I can tell you more, I will…"
News of a potential Harington-starring 'GoT' spin-off broke last week and Clarke's comments along with Martin's add to the latest slew of updates about the show. While there's enough time for the show to even go on floors, the first prequel series after eight seasons of HBO's fantasy drama, 'House of the Dragon' is set to premiere August 21 on HBO Max. Matt Smith, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Fabien Frankel, Rhys Ifans and Sonoya Mizuno will play key roles.
