Warning: light spoilers, obviously…
Well, dragons and boobs definitely play a part in it, but Game of Thrones is definitely a lot more than that.
Not according to one new cast member, though. Ian McShane is set to star in the latest series, but the actor hasn’t held back on his opinions of the popular show – claiming it’s ‘only tits and dragons.’
In an interview a few weeks back he may have given away a few spoilers about his role, revealing he plays a priest who brings back a supposedly dead character, The Independent reports.
This sent readers of the books into a speculation frenzy, as it seems to confirm a popular fan theory about a certain character.

But McShane had something to say to those who claim he gave too much away, telling The Telegraph: “You say the slightest thing and the internet goes ape. I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think get a fucking life. It’s only tits and dragons.”
They asked me if I wanted to do Game of Thrones and I said, ‘Sure, I’ll be able to see my old pals Charlie Dance and Stephen Dillane’ and they said, ‘No, we’ve killed them off.’
I wasn’t sure whether I could commit, but then they said it would only be for one episode, so I said, ‘So that means I must die at the end of it. Great, I’m in.’
I don’t think he really got into the spirit of the show. Either way the new series looks incredible, if the trailer is anything to go by.
