Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer, who plays Margaery Tyrell, seems to confirm Jon Snow’s character is dead.
But he might not stay that way forever… Dormer hinted to Channel 5:
“If you get stabbed that many times, you’re dead, you know. There are some basic medical rules that even apply in Westeros. So Jon Snow is dead right now.”
Pushed on her choice of the phrase “right now”, she repeated emphatically, “right now”.
Fans were left left on edge at the end of series five, unsure whether Jon Snow (Kit Harington) was left dead or alive after being stabbed by members of the Night’s Watch.
With Harington’s character’s death confirmed by Dormer, the question on fans’ lips is whether he stays that way, but sightings of him on set in Ireland seemingly point to a return.
“You can never predict Game of Thrones. And of course we have the new situation this year which is completely unprecedented that George hasn’t published the next book so it is new for everyone.”
Instead of being worn out by the constant rumours of whether Snow is back, the actress said she “loves all the theories people have”.
Game of Thrones series six returns on April 24 on HBO in the US and will be simulcast on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
