'Game of Thrones' actor Wilko Johnson (Ser Ilyn Payne) has terminal pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic cancer is some seriously nasty stuff, having taken out the likes of Steve Jobs and Patrick Swayze. Now it looks like that former Dr. Feelgood guitarist and actor Wilko Johnson, well known for playing Ser Ilyna Payne on Game of Thrones, is also dealing with terminal pancreatic cancer. He has chosen to forego treatment, let the disease run its course and live life to the fullest while he can.

"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," Hoy’s post continued, detailing Johnson’s plans to finish a new CD, tour France, give a series of farewell concerts in the U.K. and release a live DVD from his last U.K. tour.

“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.”
