“I’m really excited,” he told reporters after the panel.
“I’ve never played a character before.
This is my first time in the series and I’m really happy.”
The actor also joked about having a “good day” in the show’s final season, saying, “I just want to make sure I’m ready for it.”
While he had initially hoped to be cast as a part of the final season in a flashback, the show has decided to keep the actor on the sidelines for the time being.
