-Alexander Siddig is sayinf that he really is not sure what happened in regards to his time on the show and why his character was killed if the way he was an the timing of it.
-Says that his original contract had him signed on for season 5 and 4 episodes of season 6. But then he got a call from showrunners D&D and they said that they wanted to kill Doran off in Season 5 episode 10, but now they're going to do it in Season 6 episode 1 instead.This made no sense because:"But there was something wrong about that because I had been contracted for four episodes in the following season, so if they were going to kill me off at the end of the last season why would they contract me for those four episodes? Because it costs them money whether I do them or not, so it’s not great business sense to do it just in case".( More under the cut...Collapse )SOURCE
so this basically confirms that after the season 5 dorne storyline was detested by both fans and critics, D&D just said "fuck it lets kill everyone lol". i'm glad alexader got $$$$ for 3 episodes that he didn't even end up doing though
