Sherlock Holmes Exclusive: Jared Harris Says Moriarty “Survived!”

by at . Comments

When we caught up with Mortal Instruments: City of Bones star Jared Harris, we had to ask him something that’s been bugging us since the closing moments of Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows: Did Moriarty meet his demise at the end when he fell off of that sky-high waterfall?

Since the villain is the most famous foil for Sherlock Holmes in all of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s books, perhaps it was wishful thinking that he did not perish. In our Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows review, Movie Fanatic stated that we cannot believe Holmes fans' good fortune that an actor as awesome as Harris was cast to play the baddie!

Well, once we got alone with the UK actor, Movie Fanatic had to know! To our great joy, we got the answer we wanted in the below exclusive video interview. “I survived,” Harris joyfully said. “If Sherlock survived… I survived!”

Harris also reported to Movie Fanatic that he has had discussions with Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie as to his fate… so you heard it here! Moriarty should be back.
