Richard Madden's  character, Robb Stark, memorably met a grisly end alongside several family members during Game Of Thrones' much talked-about Red Wedding.

And Richard Madden has revealed that he believes none of the hit fantasy show's major characters will make it to the final episode alive when it draws to its highly anticipated conclusion next summer.

As fans speculate who will survive and take the Iron Throne, the 32-year-old actor told The Hollywood Reporter: 'I kind of think it's just going to be three dragons flying around and everyone else is dead. It’s a possibility!'

[en]He said: 'I kind of don't recognise that I was in it anymore because I've been watching so many years of it, and they talk about Robb Stark and I know who he is but I don't see myself in that role. I'm just a viewer now, which is so good.

'That was one of the bad things about being in the show is you got the scripts so you knew what was going to happen next, and I’ve not had that for years, so now I can just truly enjoy it as a viewer, which is thrilling.'

It was found that Game Of Thrones  characters who switch sides are 65 per cent more likely to survive than those who are loyal, according to scientists.
