Interview with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on how Stephen Dillane found out about Stannis’ Death. If you don’t already despise the Ds, maybe this will convince you! Stannis got no respect on screen or off!
“The main characters will get a phone call, usually. [laughs] … A lot of people also just find out when they read the script. I don’t think anyone finds out at the actual table read. For some reason I think Stannis — Stephen Dillane — he found out in his trailer, reading the script, I think because they made a mistake, apparently. They forgot [and said], Are you going to call him? No I’m going to call him. OK! So he was like, Are you… what?! I guess I’m not the chosen one, but the red priestess said it was me! But … other than that they’re pretty good in telling people.
