The 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - ArrivalsAfter "Game of Thrones" finally revealed the true fate of Jon Snow during Sunday night's episode (SPOILER ALERT for anyone living under an internet-free rock: He was brought back to life), actor Kit Harington has been making amends for misleading fans about his character's big reveal. Next stop on the actor's apology tour: Setting things right with the "GOT" cast and crew, who the actor said he had fooled, too.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Harington explained the top-secret process by which showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss colluded with him to conceal Jon Snow's resurrection plotline, which involved strategizing before the beginning of season five, way back in the summer of 2014. As Harrington told EW, he initially thought keeping such a big secret would be "a fun game," but quickly realized that deceiving so many people wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

" ... I had to lie to a lot of close friends and cast members and crew," Harington told the magazine. "The longer it went, the more I felt like I was betraying them."

One of the people hoodwinked by Harington's lies was fellow castmember Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark. The actor revealed that Turner, thinking she would never see Harington on the "Thrones" set again, wrote him "a really long letter about how much she loved working with me." Sounds like Harington might want to write Turner a letter of his own -- filled with lots of "I'm Sorry"s.
