The rumours that Kit Harington will be returning as Jon Snow to Game of Thrones have FINALLY been confirmed by the actor himself

The rumour mill has been in overdrive ever since Kit Harington was spotted on the Game Of Thrones right when Jon Snow was meant to be dead and gone. However, great news has just dropped. In fact it’s EVEN better than we expected.

Not only has Kit confirmed for sure in a recent interview that he’s back for season six, he also hinted that he’ll be appearing in the hit TV show ‘for a while’ yet. Say what?!

‘Let’s just say that Game Of Thrones will remain a part of my life for a while, I’ll probably be in my 30s when it’s over,’ said the 28-year-old actor to Dutch magazine Humo, according to a Dutch speaker who translated the exchange on Reddit.

Kit also revealed his big screen ambitions for after he’s done being Jon Snow. ‘One thing’s for sure: the day I’m no longer on Thrones is the day I’ll bury myself in movie projects,’ he added.

We’ll have to wait until the new season airs in April 2016 to find out how on earth he returns from the dead (well, anything seems possible on GOT). But who even cares because our Thrones fav is now back in our lives!
