Tight-lipped ‘Game of Thrones’ cast reflects on last season

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Jon Snow isn’t dead, but he is missing — at least from Comic-Con.

The cast of “Game of Thrones” gathered Friday at the annual fan convention, minus a few key figures including Jon Snow actor Kit Harrington, George R. R. Martin and Emilia Clarke.

Those present included co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, actress Sophie Turner and others.

With few questions as juicy as last year’s “is Jon Snow dead,” the panel was mostly retrospective, but still lively — Benioff said Turner made them all take shots of vodka before they came out on stage.

Benioff and Weiss also said the recently announced seven-episode seventh season wouldn’t air until next summer because the production has to wait for colder climates to begin filming. As Benioff said: Winter is here.
