‘Game of Thrones final season will give fans closure’

...says Ian Glen, the actor who plays Ser Jorah Mormont in the series

Published: 14th March 2018

Iain Glen, who plays Ser Jorah Mormont in the globally successful TV series, Game of Thrones, says its final season will match up to expectations — but may not leave everyone happy.

The anticipation is high as Season 8 is set to open in 2019. Glen says there are many surprises in store for the fans, but they will just have to wait and watch. Asked if the finale will give closure to the fans, Glen says, “Yes, I hope. I am one of the few people who have read the script and know the ending. I thought it was rather brilliant. I am a bit of a fan of the series as well, and it satiated my expectation and hopes. But with something this big, you cannot please everyone. All I can say is that we will be doing what we have done before and the writers have written great episodes. They have had a great strike rate up to now and I am sure that will continue.”

Based on George RR Martin’s novels, the fantasy show brought actors like Emilia Clarke, Sophie Turner, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Maisie Williams, Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Iwan Rheon and Glen into the spiral of fame and made them global stars.

Glen, who is also known for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, says the worldwide success of the show came as a surprise to everyone. “I had a hunch somewhere that it might go on to do something, but fantasy has not had a great track record in the past. I think everyone was definitely surprised about how it grew year on year.”

In the show, Glen is seen as former exiled Northern lord from Westeros, and someone who has sworn loyalty to Daenerys Targaryen (essayed by Clarke). He seems to share a very close bond with Daenerys, with many guessing that he might be attracted towards the Dragon Queen.

About his character, Glen says, “I always found a romantic streak in him. Everything about Jorah gets revealed onscreen in the story we have already seen. But there may be surprises there. You will have to see what happens up ahead.”
