He added: “I remember Rory McCann [who played the Hound], saying, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ I replied, ‘I’ve sold my soul to HBO.’ Rory replied, ‘Shut up and think of your pension!’”
The actor had previously made it known he felt “depressed” after he shaved his head for the role.

Hill had to be encouraged by his agent because he had originally auditioned for the role of King Robert but got a call back from producers for Varys.
