Brenda Blethyn wants Thrones role

Game Of Thrones super fan Brenda Blethyn wants to play a "sexy siren" in the hit show.

The Vera star, 69, told the Sunday People's Love Sunday magazine: "I love Game Of Thrones. I can't believe series five is about to start. I even wrote a letter to them; I said I wanted to play a sexy siren!"

Meanwhile, Game of Thrones fans were given a special treat ahead of the show's fifth season returning to TV on April 12.

Author George RR Martin posted excerpts from the sixth book in the Song Of Ice And Fire series, which is titled Winds Of Winter.

Writing on his blog, he said he had wanted to release them earlier but ''did not want it mistaken for an April Fool's joke''.

As yet, the book has no official publication date.

The fifth season of Game Of Thrones debuts on HBO on April 12.
