'Game Of Thrones': Charles Dance's Most Shocking Moment

Tywin Lannister was responsible for the Season 3 “Game of Thrones” Red Wedding, but when the actor who plays the ruthless character saw the episode air last year, he had a surprising reaction.

“The Red Wedding came as a great shock to me, actually,” Charles told Access Hollywood at the show’s Season 4 premiere at NYC’s Lincoln Center on Tuesday night, when we asked which moment on the show he found the most shocking.

“It’s not an episode I was personally involved in — although I kind of ordered it all,” he continued. “And when I eventually saw it, I mean I kind of fell back on my sofa — reeling!”

“And people I bumped into in the street the following day, they were all in a state of shock ‘cause the thing about this show is, when you least expect it, somebody gets their head chopped off or something,” he laughed.

“Game of Thrones” Season 4 premieres April 6 at 9 PM ET/PT on HBO.
