Curiosity around Jon Snow’s fate in the new season of Game of Thrones was so much that revealing the secret helped Kit Harington escape from getting booked for over speeding.
The 29-year-old actor, who essays the role in the fantasy epic, was on Jimmy Fallon’s show and recalled an incident where he saved himself from a policeman by telling him Snow’s future.
The fifth season of the show ended with Snow being murdered by the members of nights’ watch but fans always believed that he will be resurrected in the next series though the makers denied it.
Harington was told by the show bosses to hide the secret even from his family members but the actor told his parents and girlfriend that he will comeback from the dead.
But there was another person who knew the secret, a policeman, who was willing to not book Harington for speeding provided he told him about his character’s fate.
“One policeman,” said Harington. “I was driving to my parent’s house and driving too fast and this policeman pulls me over and he said: ‘There’s two ways we can do this: You can either follow me back to the police station and I book you in, or you can tell me whether you live on the next season.’”
The actor laughed, but the officer stood with a straight face and said, “Whether I take you into the police station depends on what your answer is.”
“I looked at him and said, ‘I’m alive next season.’ And he says, ‘On your way, Lord Commander.’”
After months of speculation, Game of Thrones finally revealed that the fan favourite character is resurrected.
