burn gorman game of thrones karl skull mormont hbo 'Game of Thrones': Villain Burn Gorman apologizes to Jeor Mormont for 'choice of glassware'Former Lord Commander Jeor Mormont made a horrifying cameo in “Game of Thrones” Season 4, episode 4 “Oathkeeper” as Karl decided to use his skull as a cup. Yes, the great Old Bear was turned into glassware by a Night’s Watch man he never expected to betray him.

Burn Gorman might play a civilized antagonist on “Turn,” but he is unapologetically evil on “Game of Thrones” as Karl. Fortunately he is quite the gentleman on Twitter, and apologized to Jeor Mormont actor James Cosmo for his character’s bad behavior.

If only all “Game of Thrones” characters could be so polite, many of the problems and miscommunications within Westeros would likely be averted. “Game of Thrones” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HBO.
