George R.R. Martin, ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 6 Cast Ian McShane Slams Haters

"Game of Thrones" season 6 cast Ian McShane recently slammed haters who accused him of giving the show's plot away. He is set to appear in the next installment of the highly-anticipated HBO series.

In an interview with Telegraph, Ian McShane blasted fans of the show for getting angry at him after he let it slip that his character will resurrect a popular character. McShane will take on the role of a priest in George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones" season 6.

"You say the slightest thing and the internet goes ape," he told the publication. "I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a f---ing life. It's only tits and dragons."

The "Game of Thrones" season 6 cast also shared why he accepted the offer. Afterwards, he gave away another plot twist which will surely annoy fans even more.

"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,'" he explained. "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.'"

TIME reported that the British actor's rant came after fans reacted to his comments last November about his role in George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones" season 6. McShane dropped a major bomb about his character in an interview with Pop Goes the News last year.

"I'll give you one hint," he said. "I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you're never going to see again. I'll leave it at that."

This further sparked speculations about Jon Snow being alive in the upcoming "GoT" season 6. The character, who was killed in the previous season, is portrayed by Kit Harington.It was previously reported that Jon Snow's fate seems to have been confirmed by the trailer released last week.
