Robb Stark, Err, Richard Madden Hasn't Watched the ‘Game of Thrones’ Finale Yet

Even though it happened six years ago, we're still not over the infamous Game of Thrones Red Wedding back in season three. That episode saw a number of characters meeting untimely deaths, including Robb Stark, the eldest of Ned and Catelyn Stark's children. 

So what does Robb (well, Richard Madden, the actor who played him) think about the series' ending?  

He...hasn't watched the finale yet. 

During a chat with Good Morning America to promote Rocketman, Madden said, "I've been busy running about, doing things, so I've not had the chance to [watch the finale]." He does know how everything ends, though, adding, "But it's been spoiled quite a few times for me already." 

In the show's final episode, Robb's youngest brother, Bran, becomes king, a move that "totally surprised" Madden. "I'll have to watch it now and see how he ended up there," Madden said.

You can't blame Madden for being too busy to be totally up to date on the show. Since his time in Westeros, Madden has been acting up a storm, even winning the Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Drama Television Series for his role in the BBC series Bodyguard. He also stars in the Elton John biopic Rocketman (in theaters May 31) as John’s manager and partner John Reid. 

Glad to know we're not the only ones who were a little, well, caught off guard by GoT's conclusion.
