** Spoiler Alert **
A character last seen in season 3 of Game of Thrones will be making a comeback in the upcoming season. Joe Dempsie, who played the role of Gendry for first three seasons, will return in season 7, GQ has confirmed:
“GQ can confirm his character is back in season seven, although you’ll have to wait until mid-way through to find out the significance of his role.”
This was also confirmed by LA Times, who interviewed Dempsie before the season 7 premiere on Wednesday:
“Joe Dempsie’s appearance at the world premiere of the first episode of the acclaimed HBO drama in Los Angeles on Wednesday, it is official: Gendry is coming back.
While Dempsie was mum on the details of what his blacksmithing-secret son of Robert Baratheon character has been up to since we last saw him rowing away from Dragonstone in the third season finale, he was excited about rejoining the acclaimed drama.”
