"So did Winterfell stay separate?"

Game of Thrones star Sean Bean has admitted that he didn’t keep up with the show after his character was killed off.

Bean played patriarch Ned Stark in the hit HBO show, appearing in the show’s first season, which aired back in 2011.

The show aired its finale to mixed reviews in 2019, but Bean has admitted that he wasn’t one of the millions who watched the show come to a close.


In a new interview with The Times, Bean was asked whether the Starks’ decision to withdraw from the rest of Westeros could be seen as similar to Brexit.

“No. What happened?” Bean replied, before asking the interviewer said they didn’t want to add any more information in case Bean wanted to go back and watch the show.

He replied: “I’ll have forgotten by then, go on,” before asking for details on the show’s conclusion. “So did Winterfell stay separate? Oh, good for them,” he said.
