Aidan Gillen Reveals Who He'd Like To See Sit On The Iron Throne

'Littlefinger' also discusses the future of his relationship with Sansa

Until the show eventually ends, every time they sit down with a journalist – or probably just sit down for a cup of tea somewhere – they're going to be asked: 'who will end up on the iron throne?'

This week it was the turn of sometime Esquire-model Adrian Gillen – aka Littlefinger – was speaking to the Serbian newspaper Blic.

Prodded for who he'd at least like to see 'win' the show in the end, the Irishmen said: "I've always been a fan of Cersei and she's already there because of her determination."

"If I can, I would also add Arya, Sansa and myself."

Clever, though somehow we can't see Cersei, Arya, Sansa or Littlefinger getting anywhere near the job as long as Dany has her dragons. But then who really knows.

Elsewhere in the interview, Gillen expanded on the forthcoming seventh season and his characters key relationship with the eldest Stark daughter.

"My character continues to build his relationship with Sansa . His relationship evolves after this season into something new and something that the viewers have not seen before."

What could that be? A crime fight duo? A comedy double act? Not a bona fide romance, surely?! Time will tell.
