What New York Comic Con Was Like — Day 1 – ABC News
As day 1 comes to a close on New York Comic Con 2015, there were definitely a few, key highlights and lots to see. Here’s a short recap, followed by a look inside the massive convention, which drew thousands upon thousands of comic and cosplay fans to Manhattan’s Javitz Center on Thursday.
Game of Thrones
During “A Panel of Fire and Ice,” Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell) was joined by fellow stars Keisha Castle-Hughes (Obara Sand) and Finn Jones (Ser Loras Tyrell).
Castle-Hughes might have let out a little spoiler, as she was asked who she would want to work with in the future. She said Jon Snow. Jones stepped in during a quiet of the crowd and said, “No, he’s dead!” So, Snow might live after all.
keisha castle-hughes just said she would like to work with Jon Snow…silence and then another panelist said “he’s dead” – was that a slip?

Jones added his view of how the show should end, saying the Iron Throne should be melted down to fight the White Walkers, then a select few would survive an epic battle to rebuild Westeros from the ashes. Dormer had a different take.
A funny moment came when someone compared Dormer to Kermit the Frog’s new girlfriend, Denise. She was amused to say the least.
Here are other highlights from the day.
