Harington seen filming battle scene for ‘Game of Thrones’

Los Angeles, Sep 13 (IANS) Jon Snow, a pivotal character of “Game of Thrones”, may not just be dead as yet! The character might return in the upcoming sixth season as Kit Harington, who played Snow, was caught shooting a fight sequence on the show’s set.

Snow’s character was shown dead in the finale episode of the fifth season of the popular fantasy drama TV series.

Fan site Watchers on the Wall received information from sources who said that Harington was spotted filming a huge battle scene in Saintfield, Northern Ireland, reports aceshowbiz.com.

The scene, presumed for episode nine of the sixth season, reportedly involves Stark bannermen the Umbers, the Boltons and wildlings. This means that Jon Snow not only survives the stabbing by his Night’s Watch brothers in the fifth season finale, but he also takes the wildlings to attack the Boltons and reclaim Winterfell.

Speculation about Jon Snow’s fate has been one of the most debated topics among “Game of Thrones” fans following the season five finale cliffhanger. While Harington insisted his character’s “quite dead”, numerous evidences have emerged showing him back on set of the medieval drama series.

The new season of “Game of Thrones” will air in 2016.

Ian McShane, Pilou Asbaek (Euron Greyjoy), Max von Sydow (the Three-Eyed Raven), Freddie Stroma (Dickon Tarly) and Richard E. Grant are among new additions to the cast.
