Charles Dance magnificently played Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones before the character met his end in season five. Though Dance was no longer on the show, he still watched the HBO series. And, like us, was pretty disappointed in the way GOT ended. In a recent interview with PopCulture.com, Dance expressed that he did not know fans had petitioned for season eight to be redone. And, he stated, he would have signed that petition.
“Well if there was a petition, I would sign it.”
Dance did, though; have kind things to say about GOT as a whole:
“I mean, I saw it. I continue to watch the whole series even after I’d been killed off in the lavatory,” Dance laughed. “Because I just thought it’s a fantastic television show, you know? I was very lucky to be part of it. I loved it; there were storylines [where] I wanted to know what was going to happen to these people! I know that the finale satisfied a lot of people. It also disappointed a lot of people, and I’m afraid I am in the latter camp.”
“I think David and Dan raised the bar when it came to television screenplay writing,” he said. “They are phenomenal. And for the whole thing to end up as a committee, I just thought, ‘Hmm, no.’ I would say I was somewhat underwhelmed by.”
What do you think about Dance’s comments?
A girl with too many fandoms to count.
