Iain Glen, who plays the role of Ser Jorah Mormont on Game of Thrones, was recently interviewed by Vulture where he revealed that his character’s greyscale has had him worried that his days are numbered on the show:
“They’ve got a worried actor on their hands. For any actor on the show, most of the time we’re just thinking, ‘Please keep me alive!’ I’ve been very lucky to be a part of the show, right back to the pilot. If I go out in the madness of greyscale, then I’ll have thought I’ve done very well. It’s been a complete treat to be a part of the show. They’re a lovely group of people. But the greyscale has definitely got this actor worried, I’ll be honest about that.”
Glen adds that Jorah must find a cure soon or he is a goner:
“It’s a blessing that it was my left hand, not my sword hand. So I can kind of look after myself a little bit longer. But I’ve got to find a solution, or I’m on the road to madness.”
The Scottish actor had joked earlier that he wants his character to die from a heart attack while making love to Khaleesi. So is there a chance for this to happen?
“[Laughs.] That’s what I’d really like. I think that would be a good scene, don’t you? If I’m brave enough, I’ll suggest it to [showrunners] Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff]. Jorah dies doing it. Perfect. [Laughs.]”
