Jason stated initially that he was speechless when he learned about the dramatic fate of his character.
Marvelling at the author’s ability to create twists and turns, he said:
“Here’s your lead characters, you’re supposed to think about them one way, and you hate them, then you love them, and then they’re killed and it’s a whirlwind of emotion. I’m going to miss that character.”
According to US Weekly, the actor revealed recently that his family starved after Game of Thrones and he struggled to pay bills as he was in debt and could not get work.
