Wilko Johnson enjoyed working in 'Game of Thrones'
Singer, guitarist and songwriter Wilko Johnson, who was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer last year, says it was fun working in TV show "Game of Thrones".
The 66-year-old had never heard of the show when he was offered a part and only accepted the role in the hope of getting a free leather jacket.
"They said it was for an American TV series and I thought it was going to be like 'Xena: Princess Warrior' so I thought, 'I'd love a bit of that, at least I'll get a leather jacket out of it or something'," dailymirror.co.uk quoted Johnson as saying.
"The first filming was in Ireland and I looked round and thought, 'B**ody hell, this is a proper job!' It was great fun. My character doesn't have a tongue so I didn't have to learn lines," he added.
