What… the… what?!?
Game of Thrones star Clive Mantle had his ear bitten off at a Travelodge in Britian!
No, this is not a euphemism!
The 55-year-old actor was apparently jumped by a rowdy motel neighbor who pinned him the ground and TOOK A BITE OUT OF HIS EAR!!!
Yikes!! Who does that?
A spokesman for the actor described the situation and revealed:
"When you play the Game of Thrones, you either win or someone eats your ear."
No, just kidding. That would be ludicrous.
"He is very shaken and shocked by what has happened, you don't expect this kind of thing to happen in a hotel. The part of the ear that was bitten off was found and sewn back on. Mr Mantle said the police, ambulance and hospital staff were amazing."
Clive is no stranger to being maimed and eaten, sadly.. He played Lord Greatjon Umber in GoT and a dire wolf bit off two of his fingers (above) in the first season.
We hope your recovery is speedy and complete, good sir!
HBO's fabulous fantasy epic returns, without Clive, on March 31st!
