Buy Game of Thrones Merchandise

Paul Kaye, who played Thoros of Myr on Game of Thrones, talked to EW about his character’s death during episode 6 (Beyond the Wall) of season 7, where he was attacked by a polar bear wight and later succumbed to his injuries:

“It’s glorious, really. And I like the fact I get [cremated] with my own booze as well —there’s a message there somewhere.”

Kaye didn’t expect to return to Game of Thrones especially when the showrunners cut Lady Stoneheart from the show but the writers did find a way to bring him back and the 52-year old English actor was grateful to be a part of ‘this adventure'”

“It looked like they weren’t following Lady Stoneheart’s storyline in the show, so I prepared myself not to re-emerge. So it was great to get back and have this adventure. Just staying alive for six seasons is an achievement in itself on this show.”

However, there’s just one thing about Thoros’ journey on the show that bugs him. Kaye quips:

“I used to like polar bears, but not anymore!”
