Irish actor Conleth Hill played Varys on Game of Thrones, who is a spymaster also known as the Spider. During an interview with The Times, Hill opened out about his character’s ending and expressed frustration with how it was written in the last two seasons of the series. He added that GOT’s last season felt rushed and it also affected his role.

Hill stated that he believed he had done something wrong because he had no complaints before the last two seasons. He added, “I just felt frustrated with the last couple of series because Varys wasn’t the all-knowing character he had been. I think the writers wanted to do one thing to end it and the studio HBO wanted to do another. I felt that the last series was a bit rushed.” Hill also mentioned that he was inconsolable at that moment, but now he is fine.
