Game of Thrones, Jon SnowIs a big "Game of Thrones" secret out of the bag?

Isaac Hempstead Wright (who plays Bran) did an interview with Empire magazine, and the excerpt that was just posted to Redditor includes the supposed "real name" of Snow (Kit Harington), although it's not mentioned by Wright himself.

[Potential spoilers from here on out, obviously.]

Fans already know that Jon Snow isn't a Stark (as was originally thought), but a Targaryen.

Here's what was posted to Redditor: Jon Snow's (alleged) real name is (drumroll please): Jaehaerys Targaryen.
As we saw in the last episode of season six, Bran's (Isaac Hempstead Wright) psychic time-traveling 'greensight' revealed the true nature of Jon's birth heritage and his real name: Jaehaerys Targaryen. 'Bran's now in this precarious situation in which it's just him and Meera [Ellie Kendrick], and he has all of this information that could change the entire story,' says Hempstead Wright. And it's not just about Jon. 'He knows about the origin of the White Walkers, too.."

"You know nothing, Jaehaerys Targaryen," just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it?

We'll have to wait a whole month (at least) to find out if this tidbit is true. Season 7 premieres on HBO on July 16.
