WE’RE RIGHT IN the middle of an already thrilling season of Game of Thrones and things just got infinitely more exciting.

No, no major characters were killed off. It’s even better than that.


Littlefinger is back with a brand new accent!

It’s a GoT tradition at this stage

So what accent has Aidan Gillen decided to experiment with this season?


Yup, Littlefinger is now inexplicably super Irish


Here’s a clip from last night’s episode to illustrate what we’re talking about.

Gillen’s not even trying to hide it!

It could be said that the accent has shades of one Charlie Haughey

As well as multiple other accents, if we’re being real

“Was that a hint of Jamaican, I heard?”

It wasn’t just viewers who noticed

Critics have picked up on it, too.

The Telegraph made reference to Littlefinger’s “many-hued accent” while Vice declared it to be “peak Irish”.

Our theory? Littlefinger just doesn’t give a toss

Long live Littlefinger’s weird inconsistent accent.
