'It was spread over a bit and I was playing a corpse'

It’s getting increasingly difficult to tell if Kit Harington is actually going to be back for season six of Game of Thrones or not. Every time he appears in public, the actor is seemingly asked whether Jon Snow is really still alive.

Harington has adamantly kept saying he is merely appearing as a corpse in the show, something people are finding very difficult to believe as he has been spotted on set in Belfast numerous times over a two month period.

While appearing on the Jonathan Ross show, he was more than happy to explain why he was there so long: “I was playing a corpse. I was there for a little bit, I was there for about a month or two months, it was spread over a bit and I was playing a corpse.

“I won’t tell you how many episodes I’m lying dead but it’s enough that I was out there for quite a while. It’s going to be so satisfying when you see it and you realise that I was telling the truth the whole time.”

When asked how he manages to not share any of the show’s secrets, Harington replied: “I am no longer involved in the show so any secrets that are with the show I don’t actually know anymore, so it becomes very easy Jonathan. You’re looking at me like you don’t believe me. It’s going to be so relieving when people actually see the show and realise that I don’t come back.”

For every person hoping Jon Snow is still around, this probably won’t be enough to persuade them he isn’t coming back, especially when this (*Possibly huge spoilers*) photo of him has been doing the rounds online.
