The actor behind Game of Thrones' Theon Greyjoy (aka Reek) is speaking out on the fan speculation that Jon Snow could return in the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones. While co-star Conleth Hill says definitively, "He's dead," Allen chimed in on the 2015 Emmys red carpet with, "but he lives on."
"No, not physically!" he told ET's Leanne Aguilera. "In memory!"
Sophie Turner, who plays Snow's sister Sansa Stark on the series, told ET on Sunday, "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?"
Even the red priestess Melisandre, Carice van Houten, kept mum about whether her character could play a role in bringing Snow back from the dead. Responding to the rumors that she might use witchcraft to revive him, van Houten told ET, "I've heard, I've heard, but I'm not going to say anything."
GoT author George R.R. Martin was on hand for Sunday's festivities, which also happened to be his birthday, even appearing briefly on camera for a bit with Emmys host Andy Samberg.
"Thanks for telling me during the commercial that Jon Snow is alive," the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star quipped.
John Bradley, who plays Snow's friend and brother at The Wall, Sam, was a bit more forthcoming about an upcoming storyline featuring his character's family members.
"Good looks run in our family, obviously," he said with a smirk. "The thing I found interesting about meeting those guys, the guys who are gonna play my family, is Sam's spoken about them so much over the course of the series -- they're always on his mind, they're referred to so much -- I've had to cast them in my mind I've had to have a visualization of them. To see them in reality -- see them physically, the people that Sam's been talking about all this time -- was a kind of strange experience, but it was really great to have that relationship play out in reality.
"It's part of the storyline I've been wanting to happen," he added.
As for GoT's other major cliffhanger, Allen said we can expect an "epic landing" from Theon and Sansa's jump, while Turner is just hoping to land in a nice pile of snow. "Hopefully, you know, it cushions her," Turner said. "It cushions the booty."
Turner is also keeping her fingers crossed for an on-screen reunion with her Stark sister, Arya, played by actress Maisie Williams.
"That's all we've been rooting for, for the past five seasons!" she said. "I get on with her the best out of everyone, she's like my sister, my best friend, and we're never ever together. But we film in Belfast at the same time, so we have sleepovers."
