Ian McShane is throwing some major shade at Game of Thrones fans.

**Spoiler alert: If you’re not caught up with the latest season, stop reading here.**

The British actor appeared on the HBO series last year, making his debut as Brother Ray in a very crucial episode.

During that episode it was revealed that The Hound, played by Rory McCann, was still alive. But, prior to the episode airing, McShane shared a few too many details about his role, making many Thrones fans extremely upset.

"Can you believe it? 'Oh, you're giving it away.' Firstly, you love it," the 74-year-old actor told Empire magazine in an interview published in its April 2017 issue. "Secondly, you'll have forgotten by the time it comes out...and what am I giving away? A character beloved by everybody returns. Get a f**king life."

The Deadwood actor argues that some Thrones fans may put a little too much stake into the show.

"The show is huge but some fans seem to identify with it [too closely]," he continued. "You want to say, 'Have you thought about your lifestyle? Maybe you should get out a little more.'"

As McShane told The Telegraph last year, he has zero apologizes when it comes to spoilers.

"You say the slightest thing and the Internet goes ape," he said. "I was accused of giving the plot away, but I just think, 'Get a f**king life. It's only t*ts and dragons.'"

Game of Thrones returns with season 7 this summer.
