A clip from a Game Of Thrones documentary showing actor Conleth Hill's disgruntled reaction during a table read of the final season script has gone viral.

Fans claimed that in a scene from Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch, Hill appeared "p****d off" as he reads of his character's grisly death in the penultimate episode.

The Ballycastle-born star had played Lord Varys, the 'Master of Whisperers', since the global blockbuster series began in 2011.

As Emilia Clarke reads the lines of Daenerys Targaryen that sentence Lord Varys to death, Conleth folds the script in half, puts it down, leans back and crosses his arms.

Lena Headey, who played Cersei Lannister, comfortingly takes Hill's hand and Emilia throws Conleth a sympathetic glance as a narrator reads out how Varys is burned to death by Drogon.

Game Of Thrones fans took to Twitter to discuss the 54-year-old's reaction to the widely panned eighth season of the fantasy epic.

"Conleth Hill closing the script before finishing reading and putting it in the middle of the table with 'I don't need your garbage' face is the mood of the whole season," wrote one user.

"He had like five lines all season. Why would he need a script for that? I'm sure he was less than pleased," another fan tweeted.

Meanwhile, stars of the blockbuster TV have been reflecting on their last days filming in Northern Ireland, with one grateful for a change from our "miserable" weather.

A number of the actors admitted they were crying with emotion as they shot their final scenes, including Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister.

He said it was symbolic that the sun shone on his last day of filming.

He explained: "My last day was actually a perfect way to end my Game Of Thrones experience, because it was an amazing set.

"It was a great scene, a beautiful day. Northern Ireland can be very miserable with rain, but this was a day of just beautiful sunshine.

"I'd seen quite a few colleagues have their final scene. I've been standing watching a lot of tears flow and a lot of speeches, and I was like, 'Oh God, I don't want to be emotional...'"

It comes as news broke yesterday that Kit Harington, the show's protagonist Jon Snow, has checked into rehab in the United States due to stress.

The actor's publicist said that he was working on "some personal issues."

In a recent interview Harington spoke of "a huge heave of emotion" after filming the final scenes of Game Of Thrones, which he worked on for eight seasons.
