Iwan Rheon made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday (August 2) to promote Marvel’s new series Inhumans, but of course the topic of conversation turned to — what else? — his dramatic Game of Thrones exit.
The 32-year-old Welsh actor described how the memorable scene where he got eaten by his own dogs came to pass. “It was the last scene I did, so I did suspect they’d actually let it happen for real,” Iwantold Jimmy about. “Realistically, I wasn’t anywhere near any dogs.”
“I walked in, and I saw the dogs, and I think it was a couple of seasons previous, it was the same dogs, I was like, ‘hi doggy!’ and they were like, don’t look the dog in the eye!” Iwan continued, “They’re not like pets, they’re guard dogs, they’re trained to be vicious, really, and they only listen to their owner, so if you have eye contact with them they take that as a direct threat. So I wasn’t allowed to be anywhere near these dogs.”
Iwan revealed that the scene that aired was all CGI. There may have been one shot where there’s an actual dog behind him in a cage.
