He’s famed for playing the courageous Ser Jorah Mormont in the hit drama Game Of Thrones.
And just like many of his co-stars, Scottish actor Iain Glen has revealed his fears about being killed off in the medieval fantasy franchise. ‘Now there’s something horrible creeping up my wrist and all I can say is fingers crossed I’ll still be alive,’ the 54-year-old star told Spectrum Magazine.

‘Game of Thrones has turned into a phenomenon none of us could have predicted,’ he said, adding: ‘I feel very lucky. It’s been a treat to work on.’ Iain also confessed working with showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss for each series has been a great experience.

‘I’ve noticed for everyone involved, for Dan and David especially, confidence surging though each season as it has grown in popularity,’ the star continued. ‘And that’s nice from the position we all started in.’ In the fifth series, his character had a nasty condition which involved some kind of dangerous greyscale rock growing on his hand.

Meanwhile, Glen is currently filming a six-part drama in Sydney, Cleverman, which he’ll star alongside acclaimed actress Frances O’Connor. The six-part series is set Down Under and revolves around two estranged brothers, Koen (Hunter Page-Lochard) and Waruu West (Rob Collins), who are forced together to fight against enemies, both human and otherworldly.

The ensemble cast includes Deborah Mailman, Hunter Page-Lochard and Stef Dawson, who played Annie Cresta in The Hunger Games: The Mockingjay. Sally Riley, head of Indigenous at ABC TV, said the show ‘sets the benchmark for diversity’ on Australian television.The new series will screen on SundanceTV in United States on June 1 and in Australia on ABC, June 2.
