Game of Thrones star Iain Glen has revealed that he hopes his character Ser Jorah Mormont will survive till the end of the show, but admits he's glad he's made it this far.

The long-running cast member has starred as the trusted right-hand man to Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) for six seasons of the hit HBO fantasy show and says he would like to make it through the show's final two series.

Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment in London while promoting his new film My Cousin Rachel, the 55-year-old Scottish star said of the show coming to an end: "I definitely want to hang in there, yeah, but I think everyone does."

The actor added that he has no idea about his character's fate, despite cunning attempts to glean information from Game of Thrones' showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff.

"Dan and David the showrunners are very secretive. We try and trip them up and make them give something away but they never do", he said.

"So none of us really know, we certainly don't know where it's going. But even if I'm for the chop very shortly I would feel like I did pretty good. I survived pretty long."

Iain Glen says he "survived pretty long" on the show

Glen previously promised fans that the penultimate seventh season will be "the best seven episodes" in the show's history.

"The story is going toward a conclusion," he said. "There's no sense of treading water. You have storylines colliding. And the evolving drama and relationships are as good as they have ever been.

"It definitely feels like the beginning of the endgame." 

The wait won't be long for fans as Game of Thrones returns to Sky Atlantic on July 17.
