The hopeless romantic, Ser Jorah Mormont, might not have much longer to live should Iain Glen’s comments ring true. The actor who portrays the character on Game of Thrones, made a remark hinting at Jorah’s imminent death on the HBO series.
“I’ve always enjoyed playing Jorah. It’s been a role that’s been good to me so far […] There’s quite a high death count in Game of Thrones and they don’t blanch at removing favorite characters. They just get rid of them in a brutal way. My end may well be close but so far I’m doing okay.”
While by no means a fan-favorite Game of Thrones character, Ser Jorah has been a standby since the very beginning. We’ve watched him try to win Daenerys over without success for 6 seasons now, and it seems he’ll never get her favor. Glen then spoke about similarities and differences between himself and the character as described in the books.
“I don’t think I bear any physical resemblance whatsoever to the character that George R.R. Martin described in the books on which the series is based. I think he was a very dark-haired, wiry man with an ugly face–I’m not saying I don’t have an ugly face–and I think quite short and stocky […] But they probably thought it would be good if you could see why [Jorah and Daenerys] might get it together. If you had an ugly stump of a man who had no chance whatsoever and was fairly repellent then it would be harder for them to tell that story.”
Makes sense they made the Game of Thrones character a little more attractive, but his relationship with Daenerys won’t happen either way.
