Ian McShane caused a bit of a stir earlier this month when he dropped a spoiler about his character in the upcoming sixth season of Game of Thrones, and the British actor has now addressed the reaction to his comments in an interview with The Telegraph.
“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.”

Last month on Valentine's Day, HBO released the first trailer from Season 6 of Game of Thrones, but it didn't feature any actual footage. Instead, it offered a cryptic tease from the Hall of Faces, hinting at the many possible deaths of several characters who were still alive at the end of Season 5. As the countdown towards the Game of Thrones Season 6 premiere continues, HBO has finally released a full trailer with our first footage from these highly-anticipated new episodes. This red band trailer should only be watched by viewers over the age of 18.
The footage opens with a shot of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) lying dead on the ground, while we hear an ominous voice whisper, "He's gone." Perhaps this is a not-so-subtle way of letting fans know that this beloved character is never coming back. Both the actor and the show's producers have maintained since the Season 5 finale that Jon Snow is dead. »
The months leading up to Season 6 of Game of Thrones have been filled with rumors and conjecture, since HBO has refused to confirm any plot details or new characters for the upcoming episodes. We even reported last week that HBO will not be sending out Season 6 screeners to press members, most likely since the first four episodes of Season 5 were leaked early, just one day before the premiere. One of the fans' biggest burning questions revolves around the fate of Kit Harington's Jon Snow, who was brutally killed by his own Night's Watch soldiers in the Season 5 finale. During a new interview with Time Out, the actor did confirm he shot a handful of scenes for Season 6, but maintains that Jon Snow is in fact dead.
"Look, I'm not in the show any more. I'm definitely not in the new series. I filmed some scenes of me being dead »
As with any beloved show such as Game of Thrones, there is always a certain level of secrecy involved, especially leading into the start of a new season. This year, though, HBO has revealed next to nothing about the show, and aside from a few photos and brief trailers, there's practically nothing we know about what's to come. Despite several casting reports while production was under way, the network hasn't even confirmed any new cast members, but one of the new additions is Ian McShane, who revealed some very interesting details on BBC Morning Talk. While he doesn't offer any specific spoilers, or reveal his character name, he may have confirmed a long-held fan theory. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
"My character is an ex-warrior who has become a peacenik. So I have this group of peaceful... sort of a cult, a peaceful tribe. »

In just a few short months, Game of Thrones will return with Season 6, debuting on Sunday, April 24 at 9 Pm Et on HBO. Aside from a few cryptic trailers, photos and posters, we haven't seen much of this new season yet, and HBO hasn't even released an official plot rundown. Fans are even more in the dark this season because the show has caught up to George R.R. Martin's books, and it still isn't known when he'll publish his long-awaited sixth book, The Winds of Winter. IGN caught up with George R.R. Martin, who teased that one of his upcoming books has a twist which won't be able to be used on the series.
"It involves a couple of characters, one of whom is dead on the show but not dead in the books. The show can't do this stuff, because they killed a character that I have not killed. »
Are you a Stoke fan? Were you worried about playing Captain Mainwaring in Dad’s Army? Do you know how to operate a metal detector? Toby Jones answered all of these questions and more. See below
Thanks for your questions. I've enjoyed it. Sorry I didn't have a chance to answer all of them. Cheers!
Stoke City – brilliant or overrated?
Brilliant. And getting better.
Really looking forward to seeing Dad’s Army, what were your first thoughts when you read the script? Were you apprehensive about filling the shoes of Arthur Lowe?
I was extremely apprehensive about playing Captain Mainwaring. I was extremely sceptical about the project as a whole. When I saw the script, I was really impressed with how the 25-minute format of the TV series had been adapted and extended, into 100 minutes. The script has a scale »

Here's what she had to say below, regarding this beloved Game of Thrones character.
"It was awful, it was really awful. Everyone was so sad about it, and I feel so mean because I speak to people and they're all like, 'Jon Snow, is he back?', and it's really heartbreaking because people are like, »
