Peter Vaughan, referred to many for his part as Maester Aemon in the initial five seasons of Game of Thrones, passed away at 93 years old.

Throughout the years Vaughan was a regular character actor in the UK, with appearances in Our Friends in the North, Chancer, and Citizen Smith, however to numerous, he’ll generally be associated with his time on Game of Thrones.
Our condolences go out to his family.
