Watch: Natalie Dormer Spills on "Game of Thrones" Season 5!

It's the question that's agonized Game of Thrones fans since the season five of the HBO hit ended last June: Is Jon Snow dead or not? 

The network has cruelly played with our emotions in the ensuing months, doing their darndest to tell us "Dead is dead is dead" all while placing the fallen hero front and center in the promo materials for season six. With the show not due to premiere until April, we're still a few months out from getting any resolution to one of TV's most frustrating mystery. But as Natalie DormerGoT's Margaery Tyrell, herself—tells fans, the end is in sight.


Speaking with E! News' Erin Lim while promoting her new movie The Forest, in theaters Friday, Dormer delivered a message for Jon's (Kit Harington) fans. "We're getting closer and closer," she says. "We're months away now, as opposed to half a year when the questions started being asked, so the end's in sight. April, guys. Hold on, just hold on."

While she had little to say in the way of Jon's fate, she did offer a tantalizing tease about the road ahead for her own character. "I can tell you that Margaery's problem is not Cersei anymore," she admits. "That is kind of a spoiler. I don't think I've said that yet." (When we last saw her, Cersei [Lena Heady] had Margaery and her brother Loras imprisoned by the pious Sparrows.)

"Do you shank her?," Taylor Kinney, her The Forest co-star asks. "Do you get rid of her?"

Dormer laughs: "If I could find a sharp thing in that prison cell, then yeah, I'd be doing that to a lot of people."
