The final two season of HBO’s Game of Thrones are not as beloved as the first six, and not just by fans. Actor Conleth Hill, who played Varys on the fantasy series, said in a new interview that he felt “frustrated” by the final seasons due to the changes to his character and how they felt “rushed.”
“I thought I’d done something wrong,” Hill told The Times, referencing how his character changed in the final seasons. “Right up until the last two series, I had no complaints at all. I just felt frustrated with the last couple of series because Varys wasn’t the all-knowing character he had been.”
Hill said he believes the Game of Thrones writers and the executives at HBO were not in agreement about how many seasons there should be–and this caused issues, in his eyes.
