Michiel Huisman plays Daenerys Targaryen’s loyal warrior and hunky lover, Daario, on Game of Thrones.

Or should we say played? In the season 6 finale, the Mother of Dragons told Daario he would never be her sun and stars and sent him packing so she could align herself with a more powerful match in her quest for the Seven Kingdoms.

“So Khaleesi breaks up with you at the end of the season. Does that mean you’re not coming back?” Maria Menounos asked Huisman on Tuesday.

“We’ll have to wait and see, I’m afraid,” the actor teased. “I mean, it’s gonna be hard, but it’s not the end. I didn’t die.”

“That helps,” Menounos joked.

GoT returns to HBO next summer. Conversations with Maria Menounos airs live weekdays at 1 pm ET on SiriusXM Stars (Ch. 109).
