Ian McElhinney - Ser Barristan Selmy (Game of Thrones Interview)


At Wigan Comic Con I had the chance to interview Ian McElhinney who played Ser Barristan Selmy in HBO hit Game of Thrones. The honourable fan favourite has been in the show since season one, though he vanished for a time, and recent incidents for the character have shaken both fans and actors alike.

We talked about how he became an actor, how he revised the role of Ser Barristan, and what he’s working on next. Watch out for his new play, Gas Light, coming in February!
