The chopper could fall without warning in Game of Thrones, the HBO series where any character was likely to die, much to the chagrin of the cast. If we are to believe David Benioff, one of the actors did not support his character being killed in the series and made it known. The showrunner makes this revelation in the book, full of anecdotes and testimonials, Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon: Game of Thrones and the Official Untold Story of the Epic Series by James Hibberd, reporter at Entertainment Weekly.
He explains that most of the Game of Thrones comedians accepted the deaths of their characters with dignity, except for one: “One person argued with us over the phone for half an hour and wrote a long letter explaining why it was a mistake. This person is still talking about it on the stupid forums he is on.”
As indicated by TVLineDavid Benioff is not revealing the actor’s identity, but many fans speculate that it could be Ian McElhinney, who played Sir Barristan Selmy, or Conleth Hill, who played Varys. Both actors have made their dissatisfaction clear to the media following the deaths of their respective characters. But it could just as easily be someone else as there have been so many deaths in Game of Thrones.
In your opinion, which actor is it?
