Richard Madden played the popular character of Robb Stark for three seasons on “Game of Thrones,” but he has yet to see the final episode.
The Scottish actor was asked about the “GoT” finale during an appearance on “Good Morning America” Thursday, where he was promoting his new film “Rocketman.”
“I’ve been busy running about, doing things, so I’ve not had the chance to. But it’s been spoiled quite a few times for me already,” he said.
In the final episode, Robb Stark’s youngest brother, Bran, becomes king. Madden said he was “totally surprised” when this fact was spoiled to him.
“I’ll have to watch it now and see how he ended up there,” Madden said.
