Rumour has it today that Ian McShane (Black Beard in Pirates of the Caribbean and Lovejoy from that old TV show…. Lovejoy) is to appear in one episode of the up and coming season 6 of Game of Thrones.

“I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again,” McShane recently told Pop Goes the News. “I’ll leave it at that.”

Doesn’t necessarily say dead… and to be honest, dead in Game of Thrones doesn’t always mean dead. Could he be returning the Hound from been brutally injured? Or is this the rumoured return of Jon Snow, Catelyn Stark or one of the other mass of deaths from a show which actually is starting to contend with my top TV Shows of all time…!

Apparently his publicist is yet to comment on the rumour sparked by his comments at the Los Cabos International Film Festival.

Game of Thrones returns for Season 6 in 2016, and we may have a special event and screening in store! Keep posted on our social media channels for more information.
