‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6: Jon Snow Twist Hinted by Maisie Williams

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6: Jon Snow Twist Hinted by Maisie Williams

What's interesting is that she confirms that Jon Snow is not going to be alive, but we know that, in some way, shape or form, Kit Harington's character will be back in Game of Thrones Season 6. The actor himself teased in September that he's still under contract with the series, which confirmed a report from October 2014 that all of the major stars had renewed their contracts through Season 7. The actor was also spotted arriving at the Belfast airport in July, and he was spotted on the Ireland set shortly thereafter.

Still, what could this "twist" be? Many have speculated that Jon Snow will be brought back to life by Melissandre (Carice van Houten), who could also bring her "partner" Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) back to life after Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) killed him in Mother's Mercy. Very little is known about Game of Thrones Season 6 yet, but we do know one thing for sure: George R.R. Martin's new book The Winds of Winter won't be published until after this season debuts. The author and his publishers haven't announced an exact date of publication yet, so we'll have to wait and see.

Maisie Williams Is a Viking in ‘Doctor Who’ Season 9 Trailer

Maisie Williams Is a Viking in ‘Doctor Who’ Season 9 Trailer

Back in March, BBC America announced that Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams will be guest starring in a Season 9 episode of Doctor Who. While we saw Maisie Williams pop up in a recent trailer, we still haven't heard much about who she's playing in the beloved series. Today, the network has released a new trailer for this week's episode, The Girl Who Died, which gives us another look at her character, who, according to TV Line, is named Ashildr.

The episode centers on the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman), who have been captured by Vikings. The Time Lord and his companion step up to help protect their village from Space Warriors from the future, known as the Mire. Outnumbered and outgunned, their fate seems inevitable. So why is the Doctor preoccupied with a single Viking girl? Presumably, Maisie Williams' Ashildr is this "single Viking girl," who may play a big part in the following episode as well.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ Director Wants ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams

‘Pacific Rim 2’ Director Wants ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams

Ah, the roller coaster ride that is Pacific Rim 2. One minute it's up, the next it's down. Last we heard, Universal and Legendary are still planning on getting this sequel off the ground. Though, they stripped it of its summer 2017 release date, instead handing that prime piece of real estate to Pitch Perfect 3. While Pacific Rim 2's future remains uncertain, but one thing's for certain. If it happens, it will feature Ayra Stark in a key role.

What isn't clear is whether or not they were actually meeting for Pacific Rim 2. It's believed that the director will next shoot a low budget indie thriller that features very few actors while he waits for Pacific Rim 2 to come to fruition. What's clear is that this meeting went very well. And at some point, these two forces of nature will collide in our favor.

Maisie Williams on ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6, Blindness & Jon Snow

Shortly after Jon Snow's death in the season finale, Mother's Mercy, Kit Harington revealed in an interview that his beloved character is dead, and he isn't coming back for Game of Thrones Season 6. Several others involved with the show, including showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have stated that Snow is dead, but back in July, the actor was spotted at the Belfast, Ireland airport, where the new season is currently filming. Earlier this month, he was also spotted "participating" in the production, although the extent of his participation is not yet known.

The show has reached an interesting point in its run, since it has now caught up with George R.R. Martin's books. The author still has two more books in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, but he hasn't revealed when they will be published. The author revealed earlier this year that he is cutting back on his convention appearances to focus on finishing the books, but whether or not the sixth book will be published before Season 6 airs is not known at this time.
