AS SEEN ON TV: OLD NAN


OLD NAN


CREATED BY:
George R.R. Martin

PORTRAYED BY:
Margaret John

AS SEEN IN:
'Game of Thrones'

TV LOCATION:
Winterfell, Westeros, Mondas

From the "Game Of Thrones Wiki":
Old Nan is a recurring character in 'Game of Thrones'. She was played by Margaret John and d├ębuts in the third episode of the first season. Margaret John passed away on 2 February 2011, after the completion of filming for the first season. According to the writers the character passed away between the first and second season.

Old Nan is an elderly storyteller at Winterfell. She is a retired servant of House Stark known for her tale-telling abilities. She has entertained the children of Eddard and Catelyn with stories throughout their childhoods. Her great grandson Hodor is a stable hand at the castle.


If 'Game Of Thrones' followed the books to the letter, Old Nan would have been around for a while longer. Sadly, Margaret John passed away soon after completing her scenes for the first season. It looks like Osha will be picking up the slack in her absence.

BCnU!
