London: British actor Ian McShane, who will be appearing in the forthcoming season of “Game Of Thrones“, feels that people should not obsess over the widely popular fantasy TV series as it is “only” about breasts and dragons.
McShane sent the virtual world into a tizzy when he gave a spoiler about his character, a priest, bringing back a popular character who was thought to have died in an earlier episode, at a time when fans from all around the world are rooting for Jon Snow to make it back from the ring of death.
“You say the slightest thing and the internet goes ape. I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a f***ing life. It’s only t*ts and dragons,” telegraph.co.uk quoted McShane as saying.
English channel Star World Premiere will bring the much-anticipated season six of the HBO series to India right after its US telecast in April this year.
Other channels from the cluster — Star World and Star World HD — are already taking the viewers through all the seasons of the show, which is a dramatic telling of a story of families vying for a throne.
McShane, who has appeared in movies like “Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”, “Snow White and The Huntsman”, and “Lovejoy”, also shared that he is a part of the series for one episode only.
He said: “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.’”
