Oh no! This is absolutely awful!
Wilko Johnson, an actor on Game Of Thrones has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It's terminal.
We feel so bad for him!
Wilko played Ilyn Payne on the first two seasons of the ahmayzing series.
His manager said:
"I am very sad to announce that Wilko has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer of the pancreas. He has chosen not to receive any chemotherapy. He is currently in good spirits, is not yet suffering any physical effects and can expect to enjoy at least another few months of reasonable health and activity."
At least he's got the chance to really live it up. He can go out and pack more life into a few months than most people ever could.
He was also a musician in the English blues group Dr. Feelgood.
The statement continued:
"Wilko wishes to offer his sincere thanks for all the support he has had over his long career, from those who have worked with him to, above all, those devoted fans and admirers who have attended his live gigs, bought his recordings and generally made his life such an extraordinarily full and eventful experience. Thank you."
Again, we feel just awful but since he's not undergoing chemo, he'll feel healthy and be able to live what he has left of his life to the fullest!
He's in our thoughts and hearts.
