'Game Of Thrones' News & Updates: Cast Backs Sevilla FC; Season 6 Character Returns For Next Run? [VIDEO]By Patrick J, UniversityHerald Reporter
The cast of "Game of Thrones" have been touring Seville on their days-off. As such, they were invited to watch as Sevilla FC battled FC Barcelona on the pitch.
The award-winning actors from seasons 6 and 7 were in high spirits despite Sevilla losing 1-2 against Barcelona. The Sevilla media team posted several pictures of the "Game of Thrones" celebrities enjoying the charged atmosphere during the game.
The actors, who've entertained millions, were treated to a great show themselves. The game proved to be entertaining with awesome feats of sportsmanship and skill. Of which, Lionel Messi demonstrated his prowess overwhelming the Sevilla defence on multiple occasions. Even Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, a known football fan, celebrated Messi's performance, First Post reported.
The cast of "Game of Thrones" wore Sevilla scarves as they watched the game from their VIP area. This demonstrated their appreciation and gratitude for the hospitality they received from the locals. Club President José Castro took it further by giving the cast and producers personalized Sevilla jerseys as gifts.
Also spotted in Seville, taking pictures with fans, was Annette Hannah. She was a minor recurring cast member from season 6. Wherein, she played Frances, one of the "little birds" who took center-stage last season.
She was the "little bird" who told Qyburn that she missed her previous master Lord Varys. In "The Winds of Winter" episode, she was among the children who stabbed Pycelle following Qyburn's instructions. Furthermore, her presence in Seville points to her appearing in the next season, Watcher on the Wall reported.
The more astute fans have been speculating Frances' role in the next season. Her few lines in season 6 could point to a reunion with Varys. Wherein, the latter's manoeuvring for an upper hand will be based on her information. It was also suggested that she will simply reappear as Qyburn's faithful little helpers.
