Actor Kit Harington has now apologised for "lying" to fans over the future of his Game of Thrones character.

"I'm glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were going to be... were not going to care or just be 'Fine, Jon Snow is dead', but it seems like people did have a... similar to the red wedding episode... a kind of grief about it."

The new series of the show, based on George RR Martin's books, made its highly-anticipated return last week.

Fans were left debating Kit's future on the show after Jon Snow's dead body was featured in the first episode, disappointing many who thought he would return then.

The latest episode titled Home, which aired in the US on Sunday night, shows Jon Snow being revived by the sorceress Melisandre, also known as The Red Woman.

The big reveal ends 10 months of speculation after Jon Snow was betrayed and stabbed to death by his brothers from the Night's Watch.
