The world witnessed Jon Snow's return from the dead in Game Of Thrones with awe and surprise, but actor Kit Harington who plays the character was not too happy with it initially.

The actor in an interview with The Wrap revealed that he found Snow's return disappointing. Harington told the website, "And then I got the scripts, and actually, he comes back as himself, as the Jon that everyone knows. Which at first I found disappointing. But it's more subtle than that. He has an insight into what lies beyond that very few people in his world do, and that no one in our world does—he knows that there's no afterlife. Which does quietly drive who he is and what he wants to do."

The British actor also spoke about the "gasp" which marked Jon's back to the land of the living. He said, "It's a very crucial gasp, and that's why we did it about a thousand times. They wanted it every single which way. They were right to do it that way, but I got very bored with it."

The 29-year-old star also addressed the topic of his character dying for good and admitted that he felt like one of the safest people on Game Of Thrones now.

"Yeah. But here's the thing: I feel like one of the safest people on Thrones now. Maybe I shouldn't say that. He could die next season, but I felt very safe this season. Because if I come back to life in Episode 2, it would be awful storytelling if you kill me in Episode 4. So I felt a bit cocky this season."

The Battle of Bastards between Snow and Ramsay Bolton was another high point of season 6. According to Harington, filming the battle was chaotic for several reasons. "It was chaos filming that, really. It was cut together beautifully and really well thought out, but once we got out in that field and realized the scale of what we were trying to do, we had to start improvising. And that got confusing at times, just trying to put together the chronology of it, and map his emotional journey through it," he said.
