Warning: Spoilers for Season 6 of 'Game of Thrones' lie ahead...
British actor Ian McShane (Lovejoy, Deadwood) is joining the cast of HBO fantasy Game Of Thrones in the premiere episode Season 6 — and he's not at all shy about letting a few spoilers slip.
Check out this first hint which came out in an interview on BBC Breakfast.
"I can give you one hint. My character really is like an ex-warrior who's become a peacenik. So I have this group of — sort of like a cult — peaceful tribe. And I brought back a much-loved character that everybody thinks is dead."
Whaaaaaat????? 'Much-loved character that everybody thinks is dead'?????? That must be... well... actually, that could be any number of people.
Ian "Blabber-Mouth" McShane got even more detailed in another interview with BBC Radio 5.
McShane says that his peace gang nurses a certain someone back to life. At first he says "I won't say 'him' or 'her," but then that goes out the window when the host guesses, "It can only be the Hound or Jon Snow."
"Oooooh! I'll leave you with that one," says McShane. "I think you might guess which one it is."
When spoiler-loathing Game Of Thrones fans took to social media to lament McShane's carelessness, he remained as nonchalant as ever.
“You say the slightest thing and the Internet goes ape. I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a f---ing life. It’s only tits and dragons."
Kind of hard to argue with that, isn't it?
So why did the 73-year-old actor decide to join the cast of 'Tits-n-Dragons' in the first place?
"They asked me if I wanted to do Game of Thrones and I said, 'Sure, I’ll be able to see my old pals Charlie Dance [Tywin Lannister] and Stephen Dillane [Stannis Baratheon]’ and they said, 'No, we’ve killed them off.’ I wasn’t sure whether I could commit, but then they said it would only be for one episode, so I said, 'So that means I must die at the end of it. Great, I’m in.’ ”
And there goes another spoiler.
'Game Of Thrones' will return to HBO on April 26.
