Ian McShane will make his debut in Game of Thrones during the upcoming season, and during a recent interview with The Telegraph the actor said some things that could interest the show’s faithful…

Game of Thrones fans have been eager to find even the smallest of details from interviews of late, and McShane seems to be a growing presence among the headlines.

“You say the slightest thing and the internet goes ape,” he says. “I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a f—ing life. It’s only tits and dragons.”

McShane, just a few days ago, revealed that the mysterious priest character that he is set to portray in season six could ressurect a former fan favourite.

The former Pirates of the Caribbean star never stopped there, in an attempt to quell claims of spoilers he, well, dropped some more TV spoilers (to those that haven’t already watched season five, otherwise you’re safe to proceed!)

 When pressed on how his role in GoT came about, he responded: “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 and Stephen Dillane’ 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.’”

While it is still very much up in the air as to whether or not McShane is actually going to die during his first appearance, what we do know is this: the media are lapping it up.
