Kit Harington aka Jon Snow in the hit HBO television series Games of Thrones, sent shock waves through the internet today when he revealed that he told a police officer the fate of his character, to get out of a speeding ticket.

Yep, the 29-year-old actor got caught speeding while driving back from his parents’ houses and was offered a chance to weasel himself out of the rather awkward situation if he revealed what happened to the popular character.

Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Kit said: “One policeman knew. He said, “Look, there’s two ways we could do this. You can either follow me back to the police station now and I book you in, or you can tell me whether you live in the next series of Game of Thrones.

Once Kit revealed all, the officer replied: “‘On your way Lord Commander. Keep the speed down this far south of the wall.'”

Kit claims he only confessed the huge secret to three other people: his mum, dad and girlfriend, Rose Leslie.

Meanwhile, in other news, Kit previously apologised to the majority of Game of Thrones fans for lying to them when he said Jon was really dead. LOL!

Kit said at the time: “I’d like to say sorry for lying to everyone. I’m glad that people were upset that he died. I think my biggest fear was that people were not going to care or it’d just be, ‘Fine, Jon Snow’s dead.’ But it seemed like people did have, similar to the ‘Red Wedding’ episode, a kind of grief about it. Which meant that something I’m doing, or that the show’s doing, for Jon is right.”

After last season’s cliffhanger, Jon Snow was left for dead and viewers were left to wait, and ponder about his fate for almost a year. Finally, on the second episode of the current season, he was brought back to life. Kit had previously insisted he would be returning to the show – but only as a corpse. Liar!!!

Lesson learned: Don’t trust Kit with a secret, guys!
