When Michelle Fairley’s character Catelyn Stark bit the dust in a gruesome way in season three’s Red Wedding, our hearts were slashed. But could Michelle be returning to the land of Westeros? The actress spilled to HollywoodLife.com exclusively the truth of those crazy (and yet amazing) ‘Game of Thrones’ return rumors.
We are still not over the Game of Thrones Red Wedding. When Catelyn Stark’s throat was slashed, everyone could barely pick up their mouths off the floor and wipe their tears as the Stark matriarch met a bloody end. However, with the end of season four of the hit show, fans started wondering whether Michelle Fairley would return to the show in the form of Lady Stoneheart, Catelyn’s reanimated corpse. Once and for all, Michelle puts the rumors to bed and reveals the truth on her return to Game of Thrones to HollywoodLife.com.
‘Game Of Thrones:’ Michelle Fairley To Return?
Michelle dished all about that Game of Thrones rumor EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. She settled the burning question to fans everywhere about the arrival of Lady Stoneheart.
“All I can say is she’s dead,” Michelle told HollywoodLife.com. “She’s completely dead.”
But wait, does dead ever truly mean dead on a fantasy show like Game of Thrones? Her character does reanimate in the books solely for vengeance, so it’s not out of the range of possibility. Director Alex Graves already said Lady Stoneheart was “never on the docket to do this season — ever,” but fans still held out hope for a surprise appearance.
“I’m not on that show anymore. I’m not on Game of Thrones anymore. That character is dead.”
Alas, Michelle’s return to Game of Thrones wasn’t meant to be. We guess we’re okay with the fact that Lady Stoneheart won’t be wreaking havoc like Westeros’ own version of the Grim Reaper.
Nevertheless, we’re just happy to see Michelle back on our television screens on a weekly basis on 24: Live Another Day. Be sure to tune in June 30 as Michelle’s spills about her wild ride on another hit show!
