There has been tremendous speculation as to Jon Snow’s (Kit Harington) fate since “Game of Thrones” Season 5 ended. Fans have badly wanted him back, so have the press. However, amidst the heap of spoilers and fan theories, Harington has attempted to put an end to all the hoopla. [Spoiler Alert] He has revealed that Jon Snow, the insanely popular “Game of Thrones” character, is dead.

“People didn’t want me to die, but he’s dead. So there you go, everyone has to get used to it,” were Harington’s exact words when he spoke to Digital Spy recently.

This statement is in line with what Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, said at the UK Critics’ Circle Awards. She teased about the fate of Jon Snow in “Game of Thrones” Season 6, saying fans can expect a “great twist.”

“It’s a great twist, but I can’t say that he’s alive,” Williams said.

After the “get used” fatal blow, Harington spoke on the intense fan reaction to the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 final scene where he is betrayed by the Night’s Watch. He said he was hoping “an outcry of ‘why?’ and "oh god, no, no" and not “thank god.” According to Harington, it was the right reaction.

However, fans were hoping Harington was lying until he revealed he hasn’t done “Game of Thrones” in a while and had a lot of time off last year. He has been relaxing and taking it easy. In 2015, Harington had dodged the press, hit the ground and went undercover.

Harington is returning to the theatre stage with Jamie Lloyd's new London production of “Doctor Faustus” at Duke of York's Theatre from April 9 to June 4.​ When he came to know that he was doing this, he had only a few months to prepare and “something like this takes some working through before even getting into the rehearsal room.”

Putting the final nail in the coffin, Harington said he can’t wait to watch “Game of Thrones” Season 6 and is waiting for the next season to air, making fans believe now he can enjoy the show as he is no more shooting and following a hectic schedule.

According to Digital Spy, Harington did sound very convincing when speaking about Jon Snow’s fate.

“Game of Thrones” returns April 24 in the US on HBO.
