'Game of Thrones' actor Peter Vaughan died at 93


Peter Vaughan, a British actor who played Master Aemon Targaryen on "Game of Thrones," died Monday morning at 93, the BBC reports. His publicist said he died "peacefully."

Vaughan began acting in the 1950s and also gained fame in the United Kingdom for playing Grouty on the sitcom "Porridge."  He was on "Game of Thrones" for five years. He was known as a specialist in rough-and-tumble characters and villains. He once said he didn't have the looks to play romantic leads, and preferred being a character actor since work was more consistent than being a star.

Writers mourned his death, calling him "amazing."

Others praised his versatility.

In a year full of celebrity deaths, this also hit home.

The "Game of Thrones" reference seemed all-too appropriate here.
