Stannis Baratheon, the worst father (I hope Shireen rests in peace) on the planet was nicely put to death by Brienne of Tarth at the end of season 5 and everyone felt that Stannis deserved it. But what did Stannis think about his character? Only Stannis can tell. Stephen Dillane, the actor who played Stannis Baratheon never really understood what was happening on the show or in fact why this show was so popular. Dillane recently admitted that he was kind of clueless about what was happening the entire time and is sort of glad that its over for him.
According to Dillane, the entire show seemed to be sort of blur and confusing. He revealed all these details in an interview with a French Magazine Liberation and said that, “I do not regret having done Game of Thrones, but I have nothing to say. I understood neither the series nor its success when I was attending. The experience was very strange, it passed under my nose. For a role like it to me, I must get interested could, which was not really the case. I was a bit overwhelmed.”
This kind of honesty is rarely seen and is much appreciated. You need to be capable of holding your own to admit such kind of things about a show as massive as Game of Thrones. Moreover, Stannis will always be remembered for a lot of things, Battle of Blackwater being one of them.
