Iain Glen has reassured fans that he is back to full health after pulling out of a West End play in January with a mystery illness.

The Scottish star ended his role as Kuzovkin in Fortune’s Fool at the Old Vic a week early on the advice of his doctors. Glen, who has not revealed the nature of the illness, joined the rest of the Game Of Thrones cast as they took over Guildhall in the City for the premiere of the new series last night.

The 52-year-old, who plays Ser Jorah Mormont, told the Standard: “I am much recovered. I know what I’m doing for the rest of the year and it’s all pretty camera-based. But I’d love to return to the stage soon, just not immediately.”

Fans of the Sky Atlantic show were shocked when several characters were killed off in the infamous “Red Wedding” scene last year. Liam Cunningham, 52, who plays Davos Seaworth, said to expect more of the same. “Quite early on there’s going to be a severe ‘WTF’ moment. There’s some remarkable stuff coming up,” he said.
