Recurring guest star Charles Dance has this week teased a potential re-appearance for his character, Tywin Lannister, in the fifth season of HBO's critically acclaimed fantasy drama Game of Thrones. The programme's production team are currently in the process of shooting the new ten-episode run, with filming locations ranging from the enviably sun-soaked streets of Croatia to snow-capped outskirts of Belfast.
Rest assured that writers (and execs) David Benioff and D.B. Weiss won't reveal whether or not this rumour (of sorts) is credible until the season in its entirety (or at least the instalment(s) in question, if said character does return in the foreseeable future) has aired in the United States and here in the UK, but Dance isn't exactly known for his dishonesty, hence why his claim that we mightn't have seen the last of the Lannister we love-to-loathe might well turn out to be true. Frankly, we couldn't possibly turn down the opportunity to witness more of Tywin's pre-Season One escapades - in fact, if anything we're truly intrigued to see what Benioff and Weiss might be willing to reveal about the future of Westeros by utilizing an elderly (now-deceased) resident's perspective on the fantastical realms. See for yourselves what the star of the impending period drama The Imitation Game told MTV whilst promoting his appearance in Dracula Untold: "I'm not completely missing out on [Season Five]. You haven't seen the last of Tywin Lannister, is all [I can] say." Hopefully this goes without saying, but keep it locked at On-Screen to learn more on Game of Thrones' fifth season and the implications its various story arcs may have for the denouement of the beloved A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Game of Thrones will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic for its revelatory fifth season in Spring 2015.
