Spoilers: Kit Harington apologises to fans

KIT Harington has apologised to 'Game of Throne' fans for lying to them.

The 29-year-old actor's character Jon Snow was resurrected during the second episode of season six, after previously being killed during the season five finale and Kit has said sorry to fans for insisting that Jon was really dead.

He said in a video for Entertainment Weekly: "I'd like to say sorry for lying to everyone. I'm glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care or it'd just be, 'Fine, Jon Snow's dead.' But it seemed like people did have, similar to the 'Red Wedding' episode, a kind of grief about it. Which meant that something I'm doing, or that the show's doing, for Jon is right."

Kit previously insisted he would only return to the show as a corpse.

When asked why he was spotted filming for the show in Belfast if his character is deceased, he said: "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 see that I was telling the truth the whole time."
