Ian McShane appeared on BBC Breakfast to promote the upcoming season of the show. McShane chatted a bit about his own character’s storyline, but he knows what fans want to hear: What’s going to happen to Jon Snow?
“My character is an ex-warrior who has become a peacenik. So I have this group of peaceful — sort of a cult, a peaceful tribe,” McShane said. Then he got to the good stuff. “I bring back a much-loved character who everyone thinks is dead.”
