'Game of Thrones' Star Wilko Johnson Diagnosed With a Terminal Cancer
It's just revealed that Wilko Johnson is battling "terminal cancer of the pancreas." His manager announces on Facebook that the Dr. Feelgood member who plays mute executioner Ilyn Payne in the first and second season of "Game of Thrones" decided not to receive any chemotherapy. He plans to spend the few months he has left to focus on music and tour with his band.
"He is currently in good spirits, is not yet suffering any physical effects and can expect to enjoy at least another few months of reasonable health and activity," his manager Robert Hoy says. "He has just set off on a trip to Japan; on his return we plan to complete a new CD, make a short tour of France, then give a series of farewell gigs in the UK. There is also a live DVD in the pipeline, filmed on the last UK tour."
The manager continues, "Wilko wishes to offer his sincere thanks for all the support he has had over his long career, from those who have worked with him to, above all, those devoted fans and admirers who have attended his live gigs, bought his recordings and generally made his life such an extraordinarily full and eventful experience."
