NOTE: If you haven't watched Season 6 of Game of Thrones, please be warned that there are spoilers ahead.

Game of Thrones star Kit Harington was sworn to secrecy regarding the fate of his character Jon Snow for almost eight months.

However, one stranger managed to get him to spill the beans on whether or not Jon Snow would come back on Season 6 of Game of Thrones.

It will be recalled that the Lord Commander was betrayed by some men of the Night Watch. Even though Jon Snow was stabbed to death during the Game of Thrones Season 5 finale, Kit was constantly asked whether or not his character would return on the show.

By the second episode of Season 6, Jon Snow was resurrected by Melisandre, more popularly known as the Red Woman.

Kit admitted that he told his parents and girlfriend Rose Leslie (who played his love interest Ygritte on GoT) and he even used the information in order to avoid getting a ticket for overspeeding!

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Kit disclosed, "A few people knew quite quickly but they were trusted people. No strangers knew--well, that’s not strictly true.”

He explained that a police officer gave him an ultimatum: reveal Jon Snow's fate or be booked for the offense.

Kit narrated, "I was driving back from my parents’ house and I was driving too fast, I was being a bit naughty and going over the speed limit. And I feel the sirens go off behind me.

"This policeman comes up and pulls me over... and he said, 'Look, there's two ways we can 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...

"So I looked at him and I went, 'I'm alive next season,' and he goes, 'On your way, Lord Commander.'"
