Game Of Thrones actor Roy Doltrice dies aged 94 'surrounded by family'

In 2004, it was entered in the Guinness world Records for having lent his voice to the 224 characters in the first volume of the saga literary Game of Thrones, in its audio version!

Roy Dotrice, an award-winning British actor known for his stage portrayals of figures including Abraham Lincoln and his screen appearances in "Game of Thrones", died October 16 at his home in London.

It was the latest of a shelf full of awards, including a Tony for his role in the Broadway revival of A Moon For The Misbegotten.

Roy is survived by his three daughters; Karen, Michele and Yvette, seven grandchildren and one great-grandson. According to reports, Dotrice was originally cast as Master Pycelle but because of health issues, he had to back out. In addition, he was a popular narrator, recording audiobooks for, among other works, each installment of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series (the basis of Game of Thrones). In 1984, Dotrice starred as Leopold Mozart in Amadeus; the film went on to take home eight Oscars, including Best Picture. He was trained as a wireless operator and a gunner, and in 1942, his plane was shot down and he was captured, spending the last three years of the war as a prisoner of war in Germany.

He sometimes performed for other prisoners in shows created to raise their spirits and took up acting fulltime after the conclusion of World War II.

Mr. Dotrice, who later distinguished himself as a Shakespearean actor, was honored by Queen Elizabeth II in 2008 when he was made an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

Dotrice was married to fellow actress Kay Newman until her death in 2007.
