"Game of Thrones" director David Nutter recently recounted a meeting he had with President Barack Obama where he was asked about the fate of Jon Snow, who was killed off in Season 5 finale.

Nutter responded to the president, saying, "Jon Snow is deader than dead," to which Obama complained, "You keep killing off my favourite characters." The director recounted the incident at the San Diego Comic Con, thereby providing the final confirmation that Jon Snow, the character essayed by Kit Harington, was gone for good.

Although a good number of fans have accepted the fact that Jon died after he was stabbed by his Night's Watch comrades, they are yet to receive a satisfactory answer on whether he will be magically brought back to life.

Melisandre's hasty return to the Wall hints at the possibility of Jon's return and actress Emilia Clarke also said in a recent interview that there is a 50% chance of Jon being in Season 6.

Sadly, fans who attended the "Game of Thrones" panel at Comic Con on Friday did not get answers to their questions regarding the upcoming season.The cast and crew also remained mum on Jon Snow's fate.

"We've always tried to maintain a level of surprise for people who watch the show," said "Game of Thrones" producer Carolyn Strauss, according to reports.

In the meantime, a petition on urging Harington to shave off his long locks has been gaining momentum. Harington has refrained from trimming his locks so as not to disrupt the continuity of "Game of Thrones", and now that he is no longer a part of the series, fans want him to cut his locks.

The petition on reads: "As a dedicated Game of Thrones fan, myself, alongside many others, are sick and tired of being toyed around by your beautifully, luscious locks. This whole full-head of lush, to a massacred forest, to a hairurrection thing is tearing us apart. If "Dead is Dead" as GoT show creators suggest, cut those locks down-a-size so we can finally begin to move on with our lives."
