Jon Snow is dead people! Well at least according to Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, a.k.a. Jamie Lannister, a.k.a. the Kingslayer!
We all love Nikolaj Coster-Waldau right? The 6'2 dashing Dane is always an incredibly captivating screen presence, and his character on Game of Thrones (Jaimie Lannister in case you didn't know) has gone from being one of the show's most unpleasant individuals to being one of our vary favorite Lannisters (after Tyrion Lannister of course). Often referred to as the Kingslayer (because, well, he slayed the King), Jaimie's journey has been a long and grueling one. He was captured, lost a hand, went to bring his daughter Myrcella back to King's Landing, only to have her die in his arms. It's a tragic tale. With Season 5 ending on the bum note of Jon Snow's death, Coster-Waldau, along with every other Game of Thrones cast member, has been constantly asked whether Jon is dead or not. When he was asked that exact question on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Coster-Waldau's response was a pretty definite: "He's dead!". Check out what he had to say in the video below.
When Kimmel started to interrogate Coster-Waldau about Jon Snow's current predicament, the Danish actor responded: "Listen, he was stabbed 50 times in the heart! He's dead!" He continued: "SPOILER, at the end of Season 5 he's dead." Coster-Waldau seemed pretty certain that Jon Snow is a goner. He reiterated: "He's stabbed 50 times in the heart! He's not moving. He's out cold. He's gone." However, Kimmel wasn't having any of it, and pointed out pretty astutely that his character wouldn't necessarily know whether Jon Snow was dead or not. "You might not even know if he's dead. You guys don't have scenes together. You don't even know him probably," said Kimmel. Coster-Waldau laughed and then admitted: "Yeah! I don't know anything, let's face it!" So does this confirm whether Jon Snow is dead? Not really. Yet it certainly doesn't confirm that Snow is alive either. Natalie Dormer recently hinted at Jon Snow's resurrection, but everybody's just playing with us as the moment, including Kit Harrington, who's been teasing us about Jon Snow's fate! We'll be keeping a keen eye on #JonSnowWatch, yet we probably won't have our answers until Season 6 airs this April. Do you think that Jon Snow is dead?
