Ian McShane is joining the cast of ‘Game of Thrones’ for season six, and he revealed that his character brings back a ‘much-loved’ character ‘everyone thinks is dead.’ OMG. Could it be Jon Snow? Click to WATCH the interview!
Ian McShane’s Game of Thrones character is going to be loved by fans — that’s for sure. The actor, 73, spilled season six secrets in an all-new interview, including that his character brings back someone “everyone thinks is dead.” There are a lot of people who have died on the show, but do you think it’s our beloved Jon Snow?
“My character is an ex-warrior who has become a peacenik,” Ian said during an interview with BBC Breakfast. “So I have this group of peaceful … sort of a cult, a peaceful tribe. I bring back a much-loved character who everyone thinks is dead.”
Wait, what?! Ian has said before that his character is “responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again,” but his role remains a mystery. It’s clear his character is going to play a big part in the show’s sixth season.
Many, many characters have met a bloody end on the show — Jon Snow, Catelyn Stark, Robb Stark, Ned Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, Prince Oberyn — just to name a few. Fans have been clamoring to find out if Jon Snow would be back in season six after dying in the season five finale. While it’s still a possibility Ian’s character could help with that, more clues point to Ian’s character resurrecting another character.
In A Feast For Crows, Brienne of Tarth meets a man called the Elder Brother on the Quiet Isle, a former warrior who fought for House Targaryen. Brienne tells the Elder Brother that the Hound is dead, but she notices a Gravedigger during her time on the Quiet Isle. The Gravedigger’s face is covered, and his true identity has yet to be been revealed. However, many Game of Thrones fans believe the Hound and the Gravedigger are the same person. So Ian’s character could very well bring the Hound back from the dead.
Game of Thrones season six premieres on April 24. We’ll find out who Ian’s character brings back from the dead soon enough!
