Every season of Game of Thrones comes with its share of shocking and emotional deaths. One of the show’s most striking characters, Ser Jorah Mormont succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the Battle of Winterfell, in its eighth season. In the last episode, we saw Daenerys Targaryen leaning down and whispering something to Jorah’s corpse before the funeral.
Actor Iain Glen, who portrayed Jorah, revealed what exactly Daenerys aka Emilia Clarke whispered in his ears at that emotional moment. “It’s something entirely sincere and true to the moment and something that I’ll never forget,” Iain told Entertainment Weekly.
“But you know what? I’ll always cherish it because it’s something no one will ever know but the two of us. And that’s a memory to hold onto,” he added.
Ser Jorah Mormont was a former lord of Bear Island. He was also the only son of Jeor Mormont, the lord commander of the Night’s Watch.
Though initially deployed by Lord Varys to spy on Daenerys Targaryen after her wedding with Khal Drogo, Jorah eventually fell in love with the Khaleesi. He protected her until his last breath. He, however, put duty before love and protected Khaleesi until his last breath.
