The latest trailer for Game of Thrones might have brought us up to speed with some of our favorite characters, but there was a certain someone who was notably absent from the group.

We’re talking of course about Jon Snow’s pal Samwell Tarly. The last we saw of Sam (and Gilly, for that matter) the pair had made their way to Oldtown after spending some time with Sam’s family.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like actor John Bradley is ready to spill the beans with regards to Sam’s role in season 7. The actor had a bit of fun on Twitter just after the latest teaser trailer for Game of Thrones hit the internet by pointing out Sam’s absence.

“If you look very closely…you still won’t see me in this,” tweeted Bradley. “It’s 25 days away. Or 3 weeks and 4 days away. Or…too far away. #winterishere”

It looks like we’ll have to wait until season 7 premieres to find out what Sam and Gilly are up to these days.

Though Sam isn’t featured in the latest Game of Thrones trailer, it looks as though Bradley himself has been keeping close with his co-stars in between seasons.

Bradley took to Instagram on June 13 to share an adorable selfie of himself and Kit Harington hanging out.

“Briefly, but happily, back together again,” wrote Bradley in the caption of the photo.

Briefly, but happily, back together again. 🙌🤗

Seeing these two together is bittersweet— especially when you take into a account that the odds of Sam and Jon Snow spending time together in season 7 are slim to none. Regardless, it’s nice to see that Bradley and Harington are still close pals!
