According to the actor very few people were privy to Jon’s return, but costar Sophie Turner especially knew nothing!
The 29-year-old stopped by This Morning on Thursday and remembered his on-screen sis was ├óΓé¼╦£furious’ after she found out Harington really was coming back to the acclaimed HBO fantasy series — because she wrote him a heartfelt letter saying goodbye!
Speaking to Holly Willoughby and GoT superfan Phillip Schofield, he revealed:
“Sophie was a little furious about that [coming out]…It was so sweet. It was such a heartfelt letter, [it read] ‘I loved working for you’, [it was] a really long letter. An adorable letter, and it made me laugh so much. And even after she gave it to me, I didn’t tell her [about Jon]. I read it and said, ‘Thank you so much for the letter’.”
He REALLY didn’t want that spoiler to leak! LOLz
But Harington didn’t keep everyone in his life out of the loop. He admitted to spilling the secret of his character’s return to close family and friends, continuing:
“My mum and dad knew very quickly, my girlfriend (GoT alum Rose Leslie) knew quickly, my brother, and friends. By the time it was airing, most close acquaintances to me knew.”
At least a few people knew something about Kit’s secret!
