Much loved actor Ian McShane, who is best known for playing lovable rogues has scored himself a mystery role in the pending sixth series of ‘Game Of Thrones’.
According to EW the role McShane will play is shrouded in mystery, which is appropriate given that the sixth season will be the most mysterious yet. Thrones is preparing to dive headlong into narrative territory not yet revealed in author George R.R. Martin’s novels (and despite that opening sentence, McShane’s character could theoretically appear in Westeros or Essos or somewhere in between).
All that is known is that McShane’s role on the show will not require to much screen time from the Emmy winning actor.
McShane launched to American TV stardom by playing a mesmerizingly homicidal frontier kingpin Al Swearengen on Deadwood.
Before catapulting to fame in America he was a regular television and film fixture on British television and is best known in the UK for the series ‘Lovejoy’ in which he played the roguish, but lovable Antiques forger. He is also remembered for a convincing turn in the 70s mini series ‘Jesus Of Nazareth’ in which he played the role of Judus.
Since hitting it big in the US he has enjoyed roles in films such as Kung Fu Panda, Sexy Beast, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, John Wick and many others.
