After all, after several seasons subjected to the worst betrayals, deaths and torture, the Starks have not ended so badly.
Meanwhile, after moving to Game of Thrones , Sean Bean has not stopped working for the small screen, being part of the cast of numerous series. The last of them, Time , a portrait of life in prison that already has three seasons.
