On the same flight was Tom Wlaschiha, who portrays everyone’s favorite Sexy Jesus Assassin on the show, Jaqen H’ghar.
This new report comes to us courtesy of WotW reader Lucy, who was on the flight from London to Belfast last night with the actors. Lucy submitted a few photos that she snapped of the actors, confirming the sighting.
For those of you deeply invested in #HairWatch, Harington was sporting a man-bun.
So once again it’s back to Belfast, the major home of Game of Thrones production for a supposedly dead main character. The cast table read happened a couple days ago and is done with, but filming was due to begin this week, so it’s no surprise that some actors are returning to Northern Ireland.
Is it possible Harington is there to simply film a funeral/play a dead body? Technically. But considering how many visits he’s had to Belfast in the past couple months of pre-production, I find it very difficult to believe. Harington has also refused to take photos with any fans in Belfast recently, according to several Twitter mentions.
Honestly, at this point, does ANYONE believe Jon Snow is staying dead for good?
And now we have a piece of casting news!
According to Alex Cusack Management, Irish actor Eddie Jackson has won an unspecified role on Game of Thrones.
Congrats to my man Eddie Jackson who has landed a role in Game of Thrones. Belfast this week and Spain in October! pic.twitter.com/zcL4w6xh8i

Given that Spain is hosting multiple in-show locations this year (potentially some new ones in Westeros) and almost all show interior scenes are filmed in Belfast, it’s difficult to glean much info from the announcement. The actor could play a variety of parts needed for the filming that was scheduled to begin this week but most likely he doesn’t have a large role.
Thanks to WotW reader HermionePond for the heads up on this one!
