Winter is (almost) here! As we count the days until the Season 7 premiere of Game of Thrones, MYXph.com caught up with John Bradley-West who plays Samwell Tarly in the hit HBO series during a teleconference with various media outlets from neighboring Southeast Asian countries!
Looking back at the previous season, GoT fans finally saw his character reach the Citadel with Gilly and little Sam. But just how badly does the aspiring Maester miss his buddy Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) who now rules a Kingdom miles and miles away? It turns out John is just as eager to see them reunite just like the rest of us.
MYXph.com: Given the chance to choose a character from the series that you would want Sam Tarly to cross paths with, who would it be and why?
"That's a good question. Well, in terms of character that I would want him to cross paths with, I think I'd definitely be in favor of a Sam and Jon Snow reunion. You know I'd love to see them together. Whether that's gonna happen, we just don't know. But there was always a certain warm and certain chemistry between the two of them," he said.
Yup, John is equally loyal as Sam! Among all the interesting characters and brilliant actors on the show, he still chose his Night's Watch pal! "Of course, the fact that we haven't seen them together since the end of Season 5, a lot has happened to them both and they have stories to tell. And Jon Snow, he's been dead once and comes back to life. And so I would love that reunion between the two of them. When the two of them are together, I feel like there's an affection between them and it would be so sad if they never saw each other again," he continued.
"So I think in terms of that, two people being where they belong and having the person they want to be next to them, right by their side. I would love a Jon Snow and Sam reunion sometime in the future. I'm keeping my fingers crossed to that." Same, John. Same.
Considering the two actors recently reunited on an Instagram photo, there's probably a huge chance that Sam Tarly and Jon Snow will eventually cross paths again on the show! Fingers crossed!
