I had braces for over 18 months and lost most of my teeth. As you might imagine, that's a little challenging for someone who relies so heavily on facial expressions to communicate.


On the set of Game of Thrones last spring, EW spoke to The Hound actor Rory McCann about the show and his character’s exit. Getting McCann for an interview was never a sure thing during our years of visits to the Northern Ireland production. The 50-year-old Scottish actor, like The Hound, isn’t much of a talker. Many GoT actors are entirely different from the characters they so convincingly portray (Lena Headey, for example, is nothing like Cersei Lannister). Yet McCann is similar to The Hound in rather likable ways. The man is a quiet, gruff outdoorsman who keeps to himself, yet is totally straightforward when he has something to say. “I’m very close to being The Hound,” McCann notes at one point. Thankfully, for the final season, McCann opened up to lend some insight into his experience and his character. What’s below are the most words we’ve ever gotten out of him.

Before falling into his signature role on television, Rory studied forestry and also worked such jobs as a bridge painter, a carpenter, and a landscape gardener. His acting career began when he appeared in an advertisement for Scott's Porage Oats. Proper acting roles were soon to follow, and his first real break came in the 1999 film Ratcatcher and the TV movie Coming Soon. In 2000 he starred in the movie Pasty Faces and from 2002 to 2003 he starred as Kenny McLeod in the TV series The Book Group. In 2003 he starred in the movies The Devil's Tattoo and Young Adam and the TV series Rockface. McCann can also be seen in the films Alexander, Beowulf & Grendel, Sixty Six, Hot Fuzz, The Crew, Solomon Kane, Clash of the Titans, and Season of the Witch. In 2011 he had a recurring role in the series The Jury II. (Source:
