'Game of Thrones' star Iain Glen drops big hint about Jorah Mormont's future

'Game of Thrones' star Iain Glen has spilled some spoilers about his character Ser Jorah Mormont, and the future isn't looking too bright.

The 55-year-old star made some candid remarks about his fate on the show, hinting that he hasn't got long left. Jorah has endured many ups and downs over the past six seasons of the fantasy show, from being Daenerys Targaryen's chief advisor to her slave.

He also contracted the deadly greyscale disease along the way and the last time we saw him was when he rode off into the Seven Kingdoms in hopes of a miracle cure to save his life at the end of season six.

But actor Glen, who starred as Richard Carlisle in Downton Abbey, has insinuated that he might not have long left on the HBO hit show.

On his love for playing Jorah, he told Stuff: "I've always enjoyed playing Jorah. It's been a role that's been good to me so far."

Hinting that his character may be kicking the bucket soon due to the show's "high amount" of deaths, he said: "There's quite a high death count in Game of Thrones and they don't blanch at removing favourite characters. They just get rid of them in a brutal way. My end may well be close but so far I'm doing okay."

He also believes that he's not physically right for the part, believing that Jorah – who has sustained an unrequited love for Daenerys through several series – had dark hair.

Glen added: "I don't think I bear any physical resemblance whatsoever to the character that George RR Martin described in the books on which the series is based.
