“Game of Thrones” fans are waiting with bated breath for the start of the Season 6 in April 2016. A lot of questions remain unanswered; of them the biggest one being – Is Jon Snow dead? Fans have lovingly, vigorously and fiercely read about anything and everything that might reveal what lies ahead. After all, “winter is coming” and they need to be prepared. The wait seems terribly long for the truest fans and as far as the “Game of Thrones” Season 6 teaser is concerned, “they have no idea what’s going to happen.”

[Spoiler Alert] Thankfully, actress Natalie Dormer of “Game of Thrones,” while speaking to Time, has revealed that her character Margaery Tyrell, who was last seen in a prison cell, captured by the Faith Militant after the Holy Inquest, will get a new “sparring partner.” Now that Cersei, played by actress Lena Headey, is back at the “Keep” after her after controversial “walk of shame,” she will be paired with a new prison partner. Margaery was put in a cell after she gave a false testimony for her brother Loras (played by Finn Jones).

While “Game of Thrones” Season 6 release date is in April next year, it has been revealed that Dormer’s character will remain locked in the cell at least for the beginning of the new season, writes Express. The actress has stated that the TV series is known to make unlikely pairings from one season to the other and everybody, “season to season, get thrown in with a new sparring partner.”

“And I've actually had a new sparring partner this season because Margaery is in jail and Cersei (Lena Headey), obviously, after the walk of shame got back into the Keep,” Dormer added.

As for whom the “new partner” might be, “Game of Thrones” community Watchersonthewall.com has an interesting observation. From the scenes filmed outdoors earlier in Girona, Spain in September and also from photos taken of the shoot, it was seen that Margaery of “Game of Thrones” was spending a lot of time with King’s Landing cast members. Hence, it may well be possible that Dormer is referring to High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce) or Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) as her “sparring partner.”

The actress has also revealed and assured fans that Season 6 will still have a lot of involvement from novelist George R.R. Martin although the plot has deviated from the original “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series.
