Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage raised eyebrows when he admitted he does not even watch the hit HBO show.
So perhaps he will learn a lesson from co-star Kit Harington, who has confessed he is an avid reader of the fantasy books that spawned the programme.
The 26-year-old Cockney said he cannot get enough of George RR Martin's A Song Of Fire and Ice series, despite the fact it may give him a few spoilers about his character's journey.
He told the appropriately titled Wall Street Journal: ' I really like the books. I enjoy reading them. I find it useful.
'Some of the actors they want to take what they’re doing purely off the show because they do differ.
'But I like merging the two, so I like reading the books.'
However Kit, who plays Night's Watch member Jon Snow, may have earned a black mark from some diehard fans, as he confessed he still has some catching up to do.
He said: 'I still haven’t read the latest one, “A Dance with Dragons.” But I’ve read the others.'
And though he has become fast friends with the series' creator George RR Martin, he swears he has not used it as a way to pump him for details on how the series will end.
He said: 'What do I know about what happens in George’s head from the fifth book onward? I know absolutely nothing. And I would never ask.
'I’ve met George numerous times, and we’re friends, but I think he’s got so much pressure on his shoulders from fans about what’s going to happen I would never want to ask him what’s happening with my character.
'I would never ask him and I’d want it to be a surprise anyway. I don’t know who [Jon Snow's] mother is, I don’t know what is going to happen to him, I don’t know if he’s going to be in the sixth book. Not a clue.'
