Game of Thrones Star Charles Dance Didn't Love the Show's Ending
Since the final episode of Game of Thrones aired on May 19, followers of the series haven’t been shy about expressing their less-than-impressed feelings on how it all ended. The most frequent complaints seem to be that people believe multiple character arcs were ruined, events were rushed, and the character who ended up taking the throne in the end wasn't deserving of it. And it turns out that even some of the show's stars weren't completely satisfied with the series' conclusion.
Charles Dance—who played Tywin Lannister in the first four seasons of Game of Thrones and was famously murdered on the toilet by his son, Tyrion—recently appeared on Good Morning Britain, where he was asked to share his feelings on the finale. As Digital Spy reports, the 72-year-old actor did not hold back, admitting that he was “confused” by the ending, saying that, "we come to the big last series, we come to the very end and I thought, 'hmm, OK.'"
'I was confused.'

Dance seemed disappointed in where the surviving characters ended up in the series’ final moments, recalling:
“There's little Arya going off on a cruise somewhere, poor Jon's gone back up north, beyond the Wall, and then there is Tyrion. And all the people left alive are sort of sat around the table going, 'So, well, what are we going to do now, shall we have a cup of tea or something?' And I thought, 'Ah, I don’t know.'”
When asked by Good Morning Britain co-host Kate Garraway if Dance wanted to see Tyrion end up being “the boss,” the actor replied, “Me personally? Yes.”
We—even show’s stars—all had our own predictions and hopes for the finale, but with a show as big as Game of Thrones, it’s impossible to please everyone. Let’s just hope Dance isn’t off signing a petition or seeking counseling about it.
