“Game of Thrones” fans were devastated with the death of one of their favorite characters and famous protagonist Jon Snow in the finale of season 5. But hopes could be flying high right now as it is rumored that Kit Harrington was seen in Belfast where “Game of Thrones” season 6 is filming.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald, several photos of the actor were snapped at the Belfast airport. The images could be evidence that his visit to Germany will be for the filming of “Game of Thrones”.

“GoT” fanatics also pointed out a photo of Harrington during the Wimbledon Cup, where his “Curly Jon Snow” hairstyle was on full view for the world to see.
Cinema Blend noted that Harrington is obligated to keep his hair length during his entire contract with “Game of Thrones”.
“Game of Thrones” season 5 finale left fans devastated when Snow was left bathing in his own blood after the Night Watch Brother’s fatal attack. As the next season approaches, possibilities arise that his character might be resurrected.
His visit at Belfast made fans curious if he is there to bring the Lord Commander Jon Snow alive or if he is just hanging out with the cast and crew. As exciting as this may be, there are still no confirmations regarding his appearance so far, although “GoT” cast have hinted at his return.
Filming for “Game of Thrones” Season 6 will start at the end of the month with the series expected to premiere next year.
