Ian McShane on ‘Game Of Thrones’: ‘It’s just tits and dragons’

McShane gives away another S6 spoiler ahead of joining cast

Ian McShane has poked fun at Game Of Thrones fans ahed of his arrival on the show.

McShane will join the cast in the sixth season of the fantasy drama, which will be on screen in April. Earlier this month he dropped hints about the character he will play, which fans immediately deciphered to mean that he will be playing Elder Brother, a character who appears in the fourth book, A Feast for Crows.

This was big news for fans of the famously secretive series. However, McShane is not bothered about letting the detail slip and revealed even more about his character’s fate in a new interview with The Telegraph.

Responding to the recent spoiler he gave, McShane said: “You say the slightest thing and the internet goes ape. I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a fucking life. It’s only tits and dragons.”

Talking about how he came to be cast, McShane gave away an even bigger spolier.

“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.’ ”

McShane is not the only cast member to give away secrets this year. Sophie Turner revealed that her character Sansa Stark won’t be killed off in the series while Emilia Clarke may have revealed the fate of character Jon Snow at a recent awards ceremony.
