Is Gendry the true heir to the Throne? Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry on the popular TV show Game of Thrones, spoke about the upcoming eight and final season of Game of Theories and addressed the theories related to his parentage.
You all might remember that Gendry is the bastard son of Robert Baratheon. Nobody knows who his mother was. When Ned Stark discovered Gendry in the first season of Game of Thrones and asked him what he remembers of his mother, he says he doesn’t remember much other than the fact that she had yellow hair and that she would sing to him. Well, all the fans who’ve stuck to the show since the last seven seasons know that nothing is said in the show that does not mean anything. Every single line implies something which we may not find in the same season but later on. On asked about the season, Joe Dempsie remained tight-lipped and also said that he describe the ending as ‘bittersweet’.
With everyone speculating who would finally be the one to sit on the Iron Throne, and with the stakes high on either Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, it would be interesting to know where Gendry stands in all of this.
The new season will air from April 14th.
