Actor Roy Dotrice, best known to American viewers for his awesome appearance on 'Game of Thrones' as Hallyne, has passed away. He was 94.

His role in GoT is back in season 2, as Hallyne the Pyromancer, who introduces wildfire to the plot. Dotrice was actually originally casted as Maester Pycelle, but had to back out due to health issues.

Dotrice was best known overall as an acclaimed stage actor, with a 2000 Tony win for a revival of 'A Moon for the Misbegotten.'

Besides playing a role in GoT, he also read the audiobooks for the 'Song of Ice and Fire' series, and holds the Guinness World Record for most characters voiced by a single actor in an audiobook, with 223 for 'A Game of Thrones.'


RIP Roy Dotrice.
