Liam Cunningham as Davos Seaworth.

Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham has sifted through a handful of fan theories, putting some of the most ridiculous ideas to bed.

Cunningham, who plays Davos Seaworth in the hit TV show, revealed to Rolling Stone magazine a massive hint about what's to come on the hit HBO drama.

The actor said the author of the franchise, George RR Martin, revealed to him that the ending would be "bittersweet".

"He (Martin) told me and I went... that's cool," Cunningham told Rolling Stone.

After almost revealing the secret, Cunningham read his way through a bunch of absurd fan theories that attempt to resolve the many riddles in the show.

"The first one is Jon Snow and Daenerys are brother and sister," the Irish actor read.

"I think that's bulls***," he responded chucking the card to the floor.

Cunningham gave some consideration to the second card, only to seconds later, toss it aside.

"I've heard this. I've seen no proof of that. It is not what George told me," he responded to the suggestion that Jon Snow is Azor Ahai reborn.

The Irish actor then laughed off the theory that "Jaime Lannister has dyslexia which will aid him in becoming a great fighter again."

"Yeah please everybody blames dyslexia maybe he is just a d***," he said.

After squashing all the fan theories, Cunningham gave his own prediction on who will claim the glorious throne.

"The last shot in this show is the Night's King, on the throne, with his leg over [the arm], sucking on a Cohiba and looking straight down the lens."

While his theory is possibile, it's Martin's "bittersweet" riddle that fans are now working tirelessly to solve.

"George did say, he gave a hint to the end without giving too much away. And he said, it will be bittersweet."

"Which rules out a couple of things," Cunningham said, "but not too many."
