Stars Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Nikolaj CosterWa ld au ( J a i me L a n n i s t e r) walked the carpet at Los Angeles’ TCL Chinese Theatre but Kit Harrington, who plays Snow, was a notable no-show.
Snow appeared to be killed off at the end of season five of the popular drama based on novels by George RR Martin but HBO sent fans into a frenzy last year when it tweeted a season six teaser poster with a shot of his bloody face.
“Listen, my only reply is the man’s had about 25 knives in his chest — how much steel does he need to have in his body to be confirmed dead? He’s dead, dead as a doornail,” Liam Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth, told Reuters.
