Author George R.R. Martin recently teased that there will be major deaths in the upcoming "The Winds of Winter" book and the name Jon Snow popped up as one of the possible characters meeting their end. "Game of Thrones" actor Kit Harington, who portrays Jon Snow in the HBO series, revealed what he wants for the character if he gets killed off.

"I think all that everyone wants is a good death," the 27-year-old English actor shared to the British edition of Glamour magazine. With a wide list of cast members in "Game of Thrones," the chance of getting killed off in fight scenes is high.

Kit Harington added that it becomes difficult for them to say goodbye to their co-stars who got killed off. "We have such wonderful actors. It's part of what makes our show our show," Harington stated. The actor further revealed in a Daily Life report that he often gets recognized after being cast as Jon Snow in the HBO TV series.

"I do get recognised a lot - more than most, actually," the actor stated. And when he meets the excited fans, Kit Harington shared that he tries not to talk or reveal anything about Jon Snow so he will not spoil the character.

George R.R. Martin talked about how "The Winds of Winter" will not have any problem killing off a couple of the major characters in the novels. The author revealed in an MTV News report that the way how his books are structured are now reaching the point that the story is starting to delta back in after it was delta out when the characters went on separate ways.

Martin further explained that the current view of the characters crossing paths again with each other gives him more flexibility when it comes to killing off people. The report listed down as well the characters that could possibly die in the next book and Jon Snow is included.

Meanwhile, the "Game of Thrones" star continued to share an interesting bit about himself in a People report. Kit Harington revealed on the 2014 Emmys red carpet that he is obsessed with skinny-dipping.

The English further shared that he usually does his obsession at nighttime and he has not yet been caught in the act. When asked where his favorite bathing locations are, Kit Harington remained tight-lipped. "I feel like if I say America, the FBI is going to come get me," Harington teased.

Fans can watch Kit Harington as Jon Snow in "Game of Thrones" Season 5 which is expected to premiere in April 2015.
