Game of Thrones stars Ian McShane and Rory McCann reportedly once ‘clashed’ on set after Ian took a dislike to his lunch.
The 78-year-old, who played Brother Ray in the HBO series, didn’t like the burger he was given – so instead of throwing it away – he ‘kicked it and it went flying’.
Although, the burger accidentally hit his co-star Rory, aka Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane who was innocently tucking into his own lunch at the time.
Game of Thrones director Mark Mylod revealed the behind-the-scenes gossip in his new book – Fire Cannot Kill A Dragon.
He explained that Ian ‘was a force of nature’.
According to The Sun, he said in his book: ‘He’s gone down in Game of Thrones crew folklore as being the person who most improved the catering. His lunch was brought up to him and he disliked his burger.
‘So he kicked it and it went flying, and had a few choice words of what he thought of the burger.
‘The burger whacked into Rory, who was enjoying his burger and had no complaints.’
Mark went on to add thank Ian because, after that particular incident, the show got a new caterer.
There is no mention of how Rory reacted over the flying burger, but according to the co-creator, it was his ‘inner rage’ that landed him his role in the series.
GOT’s co-creator David Benioff once described Rory as ‘a sweet, gentle person, but he has that anger within him’.
Metro.co.uk has reached out to Rory and Ian’s reps for comment.
Game of Thrones is available to stream on NOW TV.
