Kit Harington will appear in the new series of Game of Thrones - but as a corpse.

The 29-year-old actor can't wait for the new series to hit television screens across the world because fans of the show will finally believe him that his character Jon Snow is really dead.

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 realise that I was telling the truth the whole time."


Since his character's shock death at the end of the last series, Kit has been plagued by questions from celebrities, royals and fans alike about the true fate of Jon.

Speaking on tomorrow's episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, he added: "I get this from everybody. Me and my brother got invited to Wimbledon as you do and a Royal was hosting, we didn't know which Royal it was and it was the Duchess of Cornwall and she was hosting it and we got sat with her, me and my brother, and she leant over the table and said 'Are you dead?' No word of a lie."
