“I’ve never been much of a fighter… apologies for what you’re about to see.” Turns out Ser Davos Seaworth was drawing Longclaw to defend Jon Snow’s body as many assumed from that first Game Of Thrones season 6 trailer – but from whom?

Actor Liam Cunningham brought the first clip from the premiere episode to the Conan O’Brien show and it clarified what his character Ser Davos was doing in the trailer.

Following the shocking developments at the conclusion of season five, including Jon Snow’s bloody fate at the hands of Castle Black mutineers, Daenerys’ near-demise at the fighting pits of Meereen, and Cersei’s public humiliation in the streets of King’s Landing, survivors from all parts of Westeros and Essos regroup to press forward, inexorably, towards their uncertain individual fates. Familiar faces will forge new alliances to bolster their strategic chances at survival, while new characters will emerge to challenge the balance of power in the east, west, north and south.’

HBO served up the official cast list too.

Returning actors and characters:

Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Aidan Gillen (Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish), Diana Rigg (Lady Olenna Tyrell), Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Jonathan Pryce (the High Sparrow).
