LOS ANGELES: The veil from the fate of Jon Snow’s character in "Game Of Thrones" has been lifted -- and he will not be back from the dead. British actor Kit Harington says he has filmed some scenes of “being dead” for the upcoming sixth season of "Game of Thrones".

The final episode of the fifth season showed Jon Snow, one of the main characters played by Harington, lying lifeless in the snow. Since then the audience is rooting for Harington to come back.

In an interview to TimeOut London, Harington on Friday shared that he did shoot scenes for the fantasy series, reports

He said: “Look, I’m not in the show any more. I’m definitely not in the new series.”

When asked if he had filmed any scenes, he replied: “I filmed some scenes of me being dead. It’s some of my best work.”

However, he did offer a ray of hope with a reply to the next question; on whether he knows what will happen in the series.

“I don’t have a clue but I know how long I’m a corpse for, but I can’t tell you that,” he said.

The sixth season of the show, inspired by novelist George R.R. Martin's bestselling series, will be back in April. English channel Star World Premiere will bring the much anticipated season six of the HBO series to India right after its US telecast in April this year.

Seasons one to five are being aired on Star World and Star World HD. The show tells the story of families vying for a throne.
