'Well, if it makes you feel better then, yes, there’s hope... There's no hope, ever'

At the Game of Thrones Comic Con panel there was one question on everybody’s lips: will Jon Snow, whether warged into his dire wolf or as a white walker, be in the next season?

One of the few in the know who has actually answered the question was director David Nutter who said that Snow’s “deader than dead.” Now, Maisie Williams has spoken about her character’s brother’s death.

“We saw him get stabbed, a lot, in the chest. Like, I think that’s pretty clear,” she said while appearing on US show People Now. Watch the interview below.

“Well, if it makes you feel better then, yes, there’s hope,” she jokes before quickly adding: “No Hope, ever.”

While almost everyone involved in the show has said Jon Snow is dead, there are still hundreds of fans speculating how the Nights Watch commander may return to the show.

One highly likely theory is that Melisandre, who is back at Castle Black, will channel the Lord of Light and revive Jon, and perhaps with such a level of skill that he will still be a fully functional hunky warrior rather than a shell of a man as with previous resurrectees.

Another is that he may Warg into his Direwolf, Ghost as the Starks have been known to be able to transport their minds into that of an animal.

Elsewhere at Comic Con, the Game of Thrones panel answered a variety of questions on Shireen, Sansa and the books in general.

An audition tape was also shown, featuring Natalie Dormer, Gwendoline Christie and Liam Cunningham.
