Angela Lansbury, contrary to rumors, will not be making an appearance in the seventh season of Game Of Thrones.

Angela Lansbury In ‘GOT’

Lansbury, who is best known for being the star of the popular and long-running TV show Murder, She Wrote, refuted the speculation about her having a cameo in Game of Thrones on Wednesday. The actress’s team officially shut down the rumors to Entertainment Weekly.

Over Labor Day Weekend, it was spread across the internet that Lansbury would be heading to Westeros. The rumor was apparently started by a German website for the tabloid newspaper Bild before being repeated elsewhere. It picked up so much steam that “Angela Lansbury” was trending on Facebook this week.

Lansbury’s last TV role was on Law & Order: SVU, while her last film role was in 2011’s Mr. Popper’s Penguins. She most recently appeared on the stage in Australia in Driving Miss Daisy with James Earl Jones last year.
