Game Of Thrones Director David Nutter Faced A Grilling From U.s. President Barack Obama Following The Shock Death Of A Main Character.
Fans of the hit fantasy show were left reeling after Kit Harington's Jon Snow was stabbed to death in the last installment of season five, which aired in the U.S. last month (Jun15), and Nutter, who directed the key episode, has now revealed he was subsequently interrogated by Game of Thrones-lover Obama.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, "Three weeks ago, I was the in the company of the President of the United States. He turned to me, put his hand on my shoulder, and said, 'You didn't kill Jon Snow did you?' I said, 'Jon Snow is deader than dead.' I thought I was going to be sent to Guantanamo (Bay detention centre) or something, but fortunately I'm here - but he's dead."
The news comes amid a slew of rumours suggesting Snow is set to be resurrected in the upcoming season six after Harington was photographed arriving in Belfast, Northern Ireland over the weekend (18-19Jul15) just as filming for the next series is getting underway there.

It wasn’t certain when he, or his younger brother Rickon, would be back in the series but we do now know Bran will be back. The actor who plays Bran, 16-year-old Isaac Hempstead-Wright has confirmed his character will be returning for season six of the hugely popular HBO series.

The President of the United States of America has been preoccupied of late and had a burning question he desperately wanted answered. Strangely enough Barack Obama’s recent plea for intel had nothing to do with the economic situation in Greece or the continued rise of ISIS in the Middle East. In fact, it was all about Game Of Thrones.
