The question of whether or not beloved Game of Thrones' character Jon Snow is really dead has come to dominate chatter about the upcoming sixth season of the hit HBO show.

At the end of season five he was seen apparently breathing his last in a pool of bloody having been stabbed repeatedly by fellow members of the Night Watch.

However, fervent fans refuse to believe he's really dead, and their hopes have been raised by reports of the actor on the Belfast set during filming for the sixth season.

Game of Thrones has killed off one of its best characters, Jon Snow, and divided fans by doing so. But series finales have got to pull out all the stops - as the writers of the top shows know.

Those hopes may be dashed following an interview fellow Thrones star Maisie Williams gave to Absolute Radio on Friday morning.

"People are constantly asking me [if Jon Snow is alive] and the answer is no.  I'm very sorry," she said.

She would say that though, wouldn't she?

Although she was pretty insistent, "Yeah, he's dead.  I'm not a liar.  I'm very sorry.  I would know of all people after all.  I'm the one who has the script here!"

She explained that the actors get the entire script at the beginning of each series so they can read ahead and see what happens to fellow characters.

Is this leaked video the first peek at Game of Thrones season 6?
