We (me) at Mashable care deeply about Jorah Mormont’s fate in Season 7 of Game of Thrones, and actor Iain Glen assures us that he hasn’t forgotten about the poor afflicted Andal.
“I’ve always enjoyed playing Jorah. It’s been a role that’s been good to me so far,” Glen told Stuff.
We last saw the Khaleesi’s devoted advisor sent to find a cure for greyscale or go fully Fifty Shades into the disease.
“There’s quite a high death count in Game Of Thrones and they don’t blanch at removing favorite characters,” Glen said in the same interview. “They just get rid of them in a brutal way. My end may well be close but so far I’m doing OK.”
To quote Winter is Coming: “Does this tell us anything about Jorah’s future on the show? Not really.” What we know definitively is that Jorah is at some point alive and, like you and I and every other character on the show, will eventually die.
This is the latest in a string of oops-did-I-just tidbits of the new season that actors have been slipping, whether intentionally or not.
Shortly after Nicolaj Coster-Waldau hinted that Cersei might have a new love interest, the actor who plays that potential foible, Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) said his own character would be “satisfied” in Season 7 (“good satisfied,” he added, in what can only be imagined as a smarmy voice).
Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres on July 16, and we will be overanalyzing actor quotes until then!
