The late actor also appeared in the second season of "Game Of Thrones" as Hallyne the Pyromance, who led the Alchemists' Guild in King's Landing.

Mr. Dotrice won many accolades throughout his lengthy career, including a Tony Award for featured role in a play in 2000 honoring his performance in the Broadway revival of Eugene O'Neill's "A Moon for the Misbegotten". Dotrice will also be remembered as a theatre actor.

In 1969, he claimed the TV Bafta best actor award for his role as Albert Haddock in the BBC adaptation of AP Herbert's Misleading Cases.

In a statement, his family said he "died peacefully on Monday October 16 in his London home surrounded by family, including his three daughters, grandchildren and great-grandson". The same report suggests that he was originally cast as Maester Pycelle in the magnum opus but had to opt out of it owing to health issues.


The actor is also known for his standout role as Leopold Mozart in the 1984 Oscar-winning film "Amadeus". In addition, he was a popular narrator, recording audiobooks for, among other works, each installment of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series (the basis of Game of Thrones).

In his youth, Dotrice had been a member of the Royal Air Force, and was held as a prisoner of war to Germany for years during World War II. He was trained as a wireless operator and a gunner, and in 1942, his plane was shot down and he was captured, spending the last three years of the war as a prisoner of war in Germany.

Dotrice reportedly performed for other prisoners in shows meant to raise their spirits, which inspired him to become an actor after World War II was over.

His wife, Kay Newman, died in 2007.
