Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

I imagine that if Bean wanted to know or the showrunners thought it would improve his performance (pause for laughter at the notion of Bean being that subtle an actor), they would indeed tell him about Jon's parentage, assuming they know themselves. And I believe George R. R. Martin himself had said that he would share unrevealed information about their characters with the actors if asked. Apparently Martin told Alfie Allen who Jon's parents were-- he would hardly tell the guy who plays Theon and refuse the guy who plays Ned.

Both of your other questions will be addressed in one way or another in book 4, so I'd just say, read on.
