Though we do seem Sandor to carry some fire in himself as he put that ax into those woods to chop them down and when he says “Hate” being his answer to his survival after the great injury and tough fight he got in season 4. But the part of Brother Ray was so small, in fact, he even dies by the end of the episode but he surely will be remembered in the show and as he sits with the Entertainment Weekly in an Interview, he speaks about his coming to the show, working with Rory McCann and much more.

Ian McShane Speaks About his Entrance in Game Of Thrones 6 to His Exit In Episode 7 “The Broken Man”

Earlier in one of the interview even much before the Game Of Thrones 6 was going to begin he quite openly spoke about his character being someone who is involved in the show just to bring back one of the characters. Now that he is done showing his presence on the show, which according to us was one of the most serene sequences from season 6 and quite loved him a lot, he in the interview mentions about how the producers when managed to get him on bored and provided him “two-page speech” and that being, “it was one episode, for a start, which is why I wanted to do it.” Later adding to his actual meeting the producers for the role-play, “It’s like he’s holding an improvised meeting – not Alcoholics Anonymous, but Murderer’s Anonymous. He’s an ex-warrior who’s grown tired of the murdering life and trying to lead another kind of life.”

Now being the only sequence on the show that has lasted the only single episode, McShane didn’t have the opportunity to interact with a lot of character and just Rory McCann “The Hound” and to be working with him he had just these words, “a delight to work with”. Further elaborating more about his character intension and approach towards Hound where that, “The Hound has not been shown much humanity in his life, and he gets a little from Brother Ray and carries that forward into his character, which makes it more interesting for those who watch him.”

Also with the kind of human affect, nurturing and respect that was provided by Brother Ray to Hound and seeing him getting killed, Hound is definitely going back to kill the Brotherhood without Banners to avenge him but what lies ahead in the course of his story is even unclear to McShane aswell only one think that “I don’t know what happens in the next episodes. But if they’re following the Western code, he’ll seek to avenge me, then continue his life in a different way. You have to have revenge and expedient revenge. I don’t believe in the death penalty, but I understand personal vengeance.”

He even made a point about the social media culture that is so furious at any topic or saying they come up with, “I’m constantly surprised that when anybody says anything – when a dandelion farts in Belfast things go crazy in the Far East. It’s like the [butterfly effect] multiplied by 20; little things that have great affect. And you know it’s all just more publicity and it just adds to the popularity of the show. People are fascinated by it.”
