Game of Thrones star Stephen Dillane does not understand why the fantasy TV series is so popular.
The British actor, who played warlord Stannis Baratheon in the hit show did not fully understand the nature of the show when he agreed to star in it.
Stephen also admits he has struggled to become interested in his character, who over the course of the first five series attempted to become King of the Seven Kingdoms, the fictional realm at the centre of George R. R. Martin's stories.
'"I do not regret having done Game Of Thrones, but I have nothing to say," he tells French newspaper Liberation.

He won't apologise for his recent spoiler slip.
Ian McShane is super laidback when it comes to acting. So much so, that he's totally unapologetic about spoilers, as proven by his latest interview. He reacted to 'Game Of Thrones' fans' anger over his recent slip-up with disdain, branding the TV series as 'only t**s and dragons'.
Ian McShane has something to say to GoT fans
The 'Deadwood' star has managed to offend literally the entirety of one of the world's most avid fandoms. Clearly not a die hard fan of the show himself, McShane opened up about his one-episode stint in 'Game Of Thrones' recently on BBC Breakfast. 'I bring back a much-loved character who everybody thinks is dead', he said, which is hardly as ambiguous as he meant it to be.
Actor Ian McShane told upset Game of Thrones to "get a f**king life" after he received backlash for revealing a potential spoiler for the show.
The former Deadwood star sparked controversy after going into perhaps too much detail about his upcoming one-off appearance on the season six premiere of the beloved fantasy drama.
"My character really is like an ex-warrior who’s become a peacenik," he recently told the U.K.'s chat show BBC Breakfast. "So I have a group of peaceful; sort of like a cult, peaceful tribe, who have brought back... I bring back a much-loved character who everybody thinks is dead. So I’ll leave it at that."
His comment led many fans to believe he was hinting at the possible return of popular character Jon Snow, played by Kit Harington, who was assumed dead at the end of season five.

The former ‘Lovejoy’ is a bit of a killjoy for ‘GOT’ fans wanting to stay spoiler free.
Any article that involves Ian McShane talking about his upcoming ‘Game of Thrones’ role should come with a big fat ‘spoiler alert’ warning, so here we go: SPOILER ALERT! The loose lipped actor seems to be unable to stay quiet when it comes to revealing juicy season six plot details and what’s more, he doesn't really care.
Ian McShane stars in the new series of ‘Game of Thrones’.
Earlier this month, while appearing on BBC Breakfast he described his character as, “like an ex-warrior who’s become a peacenik.” Adding “I have a group of peaceful … sort of a cult who … I bring back a much-loved character who everybody thinks is dead.”
British actor Ian McShane has shared a huge spoiler ahead of his debut on show Game Of Thrones
Ian, who will be seen in season six of HBO’s popular fantasy show, has given the biggest hint yet that a much-loved character will be brought back to life.

Ian has been sworn to secrecy about his role, but revealed to BBC Radio 5 Live on Thursday (03Mar16) that he will play "the leader of a peaceful cult" who nurses "a much loved character back to life."

Although it contains some memorably outrageous comedy moments, this movie (retitled The Brothers Grimsby for North America) is such an awkward combination of gross-out humour, violent action and sappy sentimentality that it never becomes a classic. Sacha Baron Cohen creates yet another lively alter ego as lager lout Noddy, although he isn't nearly as fully formed as the indelible Ali G, Borat and Bruno.
Noddy Butcher lives in Grimsby, northeast England, with his girlfriend (Rebel Wilson) and 9 or maybe 11 kids. His main passions in life are football and beer, then he learns that his long-lost brother Sebastian (Mark Strong) is alive and working as a super-spy. So Noddy heads to London and crashes Sebastian's latest mission, protecting a model-turned-philanthropist (Penelope Cruz). In the havoc, the brothers end up on the run trying to both clear their names and prevent an impending terror attack. This takes them to South Africa and Chile, as they're pursued by both a villainous thug (Scott Adkins) and a ruthless assassin (Sam Hazeldine) hired by Sebastian's boss (Ian McShane). Along the way, they're assisted by Sebastian's love-lorn colleague (Isla Fisher), locals (including Gabourey Sidibe and Barkhad Abdi) and the gang from Nobby's hometown pub.
The script merrily pushes the boundaries of taste, often with riotous vulgarity. Some of this is so jaw-dropping that it's funny (an unforgettable scene involving a herd of elephants), while other jokes are harder to take (a running gag about HIV infection). Most of the humour centres squarely on male genitalia and anal insertion, which gives the film an oddly homophobic undercurrent that will only amuse the drunken yobs in the audience. More interesting is the wildly astute pastiche of Britain's perceived benefits fraud subculture. But director Louis Leterrier (The Transporter) seems uninterested in this, instead focussing on intensely brutal action, which results in an unusually high body count for a comedy.

Being separated for so many years has led the two grown men down very different lives. Nobby has multiple children and lives with the love of his life whilst his brother, Sebastian is a loner who doesn't have a personal life at the cost of his job, a professional spy.
