Paul Kaye made his debut on the HBO hit series “Game Of Thrones” in Season 3 episode 2 titled “Dark Wings, Dark Words,” which aired on April 7, 2013. Recently, it was confirmed by his agency Vivienne Clore that he is reprising his role as Red Priest Thoros of Myr in Season 6.
The agency made the announcement in a post, which also announced the comedy play “The Suicide,” starring Paul Kaye. The play will run at The National Theatre in London two days before the premiere of “Game Of Thrones” Season 6.
After his appearance as Thoros of Myr in “Game Of Thrones” Season 3 in 2013, Kaye appeared in several TV series. He played Duncan Hammer in “Lilyhammer” from 2013 to 2014 and Vinculus in “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell” in 2015.
Raised to become a Red Priest with powers of resurrection, Thoros of Myr was tasked to convert future King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) to the Lord of Light. Kaye’s character was last seen in Season 3 episode 7 titled “The Bear And The Maiden Fair” with the Brotherhood Without Banners wandering the Riverlands of Westeros.
The difference between the plot of the Brotherhood Without Banners and what took place on the show is significant. In particular, the big book resurrection of Kaye’s character with Lady Stoneheart has not happened on the show.
Kaye’s return in “Game Of Thrones” led to speculations that Lady Stoneheart will finally be seen on screen. Fans have been waiting for the latter to make an appearance since Catelyn Stark’s resurrected version was not featured in the Season 3 finale.
Also, there are rumors that Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) will be killed off in Season 6. This is because Lady Stoneheart has her Brother Without Banners hang Brienne of Tarth for treason in the books and Christie is joining “Top Of The Lake” Season 2, according to Deadline.
