HOLLYWOOD – An exclusive first look at Ian McShane’s new character in Game of Thrones arrived at the Studio Exec bungalow via raven.
Ian McShane is perfect casting for The Game of Thrones and ever since news of his casting fans have been eager to get a glimpse of what the former Deadwood star would be up to. Fortunately for all, the Studio Exec has EXCLUSIVE access to the star and is able to confirm some facts about his upcoming role in the HBO hit fantasy show.
So Ian, who’s this character?
He is called Lovejoy and he is a collector of rare antiquities and objects of worth. A kind of wheeler dealer but also a loveable rogue. He has a small Bravos swordsman friend called Tinker who follows him around and does his bidding.
That sounds great.
It is great. I love Game of Thrones. I can swear as much as I f*cking like and I get killed off in the second episode so basically I only had to work two weeks.
Er… Isn’t that a spoiler?
Okay. I mean I DON’T get killed in the second episode. No, not at all.
There’s been a lot of speculation about the role you play already and how it ties in to the other story lines. Can you say something about that?
Okay. But I’ll try and avoid spoilers. So, basically, the old girl who died at the wedding, she’s back and she’s zombie like and everything, but she’s also a bit of quality so my character looks after her in the woods and kind of falls for her, until he’s … NOT killed.
