Despite the extreme measures being taken to stop any leaks about the finale of Game of Thrones becoming public - including shooting fake scenes and shooting down dronesit turns out that Sean Bean didn't get the memo about not talking about anything, ever.

That might be because he's been dead for the last six seasons and his @gameofthrones.biz work email's been wound up, but he's been blabbing about a reunion special hosted by Conan O'Brien to celebrate the show's last season.

Asked whether he kept in touch with his Stark family, Bean explained that he'd "only seen them on a couple of occasions", the last being in Belfast about a month before when "they decided to get all the characters together for a bit for this big show in Belfast and [Conan] kind of hosted the evening".

"Conan O’Brien did this thing," he went on. "It was the last episode, so we all got together. It was good! It’s funny with work, you don’t really keep in touch. You do so many types of jobs in that part of the world. It’s just like whenever I see old friends or even old drama school friends, it’s just the same, we pick up where we left off last time."

HBO hasn't confirmed yet whether this is will be a big This Is Your Life-meets-Jeremy Kyle televised spectacular or not, but it seems like a bit of a faff to fly O'Brien over to Ireland for the equivalent of a work Christmas do.
