'Game of Thrones' Showrunner Reacts to Andy Samberg's 'Reveal' That Jon Snow Is Alive

Stars Conleth Hill, Alfie Allen and Sophie Turner also play coy when asked on the red carpet of Emmy Awards about the fate of Kit Harington's character.

AceShowbiz - Jon Snow's fate on "Game of Thrones" has got people talking in the past few months and Andy Samberg couldn't help bringing it up at the 2015 Primetime Emmy Awards. Hosting the Sunday, September 20 event, the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star jokingly claimed that the book author George R. R. Martin told him that the bastard son of Ned Stark is still alive.

"Happy birthday, George, and thanks for telling me during the commercial that Jon Snow is alive," said the host, who stood next to Martin. The novelist responded with a laugh, while co-showrunner David Benioff who sat behind Martin shook his head, expressing disapproval to Samberg's claim.

Meanwhile, on the red carpet of the Emmys, the stars of the HBO hit series also chimed in on Jon Snow's fate. Conleth Hill who plays Lord Varys said, "The question isn't did he die. The question is whether he can come back to life. We can't answer that."

Alfie Allen said, "He's dead, but he lives on." Before making fans confused, he explained, "No, not physically! In memory!" Sophie Turner who plays Jon's sister Sansa said, "I genuinely have no idea what's going to happen, but he did get stabbed at the end of last season so... kind of explains itself, you know?"

John Bradley who plays Jon's loyal friend Samwell Tarly added, "Once people die they don't stop exiting physically. You may see funerals; you may see the immediate aftermath of death."

Asked about her own character who was last seen jumping off a high castle wall, Turner said, "I can't tell you" what would happen to Sansa, "but it would be nice if something cushions her fall. She may not have broken legs." She, however, may have revealed that Sansa survived the fall as she added that Sansa might want "to take a bit of revenge this season."

"Game of Thrones" season 6 is currently in production and will air in 2016.
