Sean Bean Has A Prediction Of Which Of His Stark Children Will Survive The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Finale

If anyone is qualified to predict who will live and who will die at the end of a story, it’s Sean Bean, the actor who portrayed the ill-fated Ned Stark in Game of Thrones.

Bean still looks back on his character’s shocking death with fondness:

“It was a memorable event — a bit of a shock. I’m proud of all that, though. It’s great to be part of a phenomena, establish this character and then he’s there forever.”

The Stark patriarch’s death signaled to fans everywhere that, in the world of Game of Thrones, anyone could die at any time. And that has sadly included many of Ned’s family: Rob, Catelyn, Rickon, and even Jon (for a few days).

Now, years after he departed the world of Westeros, Bean has predicted which Stark child will be left standing after the final season concludes:

“Who’s left? Jon Snow is left, isn’t he? But Arya would have to be it. Yeah Arya will last — maybe she’ll be on the throne.”

Arya Stark is definitely a good guess, considering her training as an assassin, but dealing with the deaths of Sansa, Bran, and Jon (again) won’t be easy. And it’s hard to imagine Arya making a great queen, given her penchant for killing and distaste for high-class culture.

We can trust his prediction because, by this point, Bean has become a professional onscreen murder victim. Having notably died in so many movies, like Lord of the Rings and Ronin, Bean is even taking his talents to the realm of video games. In the sequel to the best-selling game Hitman, Bean plays Mark Fab, who players are tasked with killing by any means necessary.

Bean commented on his new death role:

“How ironic, yeah? I just figured, ‘Why not? I’ve died so many times before. What harm will another one do?’ Now they get the chance to kill me. and if that makes them happy, then that’s fine by me.”

Be sure to kill Bean in Hitman 2, and find out which of his children will survive in the final series of Game of Thrones, premiering early 2019!
