JJ Murphy Dies Days After Filming Starts

jj-murphy-768Veteran Northern Ireland actor JJ Murphy collapsed and died while filming his scene in the fifth season of Game of Thrones.  

According to the Belfast Telegraph Murphy had been cast to play the role of Ser Denys Mallister, a member of the Nights Watch.  Murphy passed just four days after filming his first scene for the season.

Since then, Dan and David have officially announced that:

We will not be recasting J.J. Murphy. He was a lovely man, and the best Denys Mallister we could have hoped for. And now his watch is ended.

My condolences to JJ Murphy’s family and friends.
