Conleth Hill From Game Of Thrones Is Not Married But Does That Make Him Gay? Many Awards To Offer But No Dating Affairs

One of Game of Thrones' main characters is Lord Varys.

The man to portray it, Northern Irish actor Conleth Hill is someone, who has bagged a lot of awards in his career. But, are those awards the only possession in his life, as he is reportedly still a bachelor. Moreover, does "not getting married" till date make him a gay? What is his sexual orientation? 

Lets us find out!

Does Not Have A Wife: Is A Gay?

The married life of Hill is something that his fans are always curious about, but the fact is, he is yet to get married and have a wife in his life. Back in an interview in 2015, he revealed that he had never married in his life.

When I did Conan O'Brien, the researcher said, "So, I believe your first wife made you go into acting." And I was, like, "First wife?" That implies more than one. I have never been married. But I think someone went in there and had a laugh. But I don't mind.

That is enough to make people know that he is not married and instead has his focus shifted on his professional life. While some say his professional obligations are the reason why he never married anyone, some people also speculate it to be because of his gay sexuality.

But, those rumors remain unverified until and unless the man himself comes forth and affirms them, which he has not done yet. So, no major conclusion can be reached as of now regarding his sexuality. 

Conleth Hill Bio, Net Worth & Role In GOT

Born on 24 November 1964, Conleth Seamus Eoin Croiston Hill is a Northern Irish film and TV actor. He is best known for playing Lord Varys in the HBO epic 'Game of Thrones.' He also portrays the role of Edward Darby on the USA Network series "Suits."

He was confirmed for the role of Varys on 15 July 2010. He initially appeared as a guest star in the very 1st season and joined the starring cast for the 2nd season.

He also voices the character of Lord Varys in the "Game of Thrones" role-playing video game. Conleth Hill originally auditioned for King Robert Baratheon's role before being cast as Varys.

Talking about portraying Varys, he said,

"The key to Varys is that he's one way in public, when he's working, very fey, giggly, and effete for want of a better word, but there are moments when he drops all that and speaks honestly. That stuff is great to play. When Ned asks Varys who he truly serves, and Varys answers, "The realm," I think that's true. There's a moral code there... He sees in Tyrion someone who plays the game well, and Varys loves playing the game. Ned was too honorable and too good - he disdained the game."

Moreover, speaking about the seventh season of Game of Thrones, he stated that it had not sunk it yet. In his words,

No, not yet. I’ve always been aware from day one how lucky I was, how special it was. I’m also really proud that it’s made [in Northern Ireland] and shows off the beauty of where I come from. Our tourism has gone up because of it. It will be a big loss when it goes, for lots of different reasons—and not just as selfish as my own. I haven’t contemplated it yet. We’ve got another season to go.

He also added what the fans and viewers could expect in the penultimate season of the HBO classic.

I think Cersei’s a bad article [Irish slang for a person] sometimes. But what’s brilliant about it is that they’re all human. You could argue that Cersei did what she did and blew up the Great Sept [in Season 6] because she was being abused by the High Sparrow and his people. It’s not as easy to be black-and-white about it. Look at how people thought about Jaime [Lannister] at the beginning versus now. It’s always changing—that’s what is so brilliant about the books and the series. 

Further, Conleth also dropped some hints about his character's fate in the long-running series in 2019. Conleth - who portrays a bald look on the series despite having a fully-haired scalp - revealed that his onscreen role is less "proactive" than the earlier seasons.

His statement led many to suspect if Lord Varys is set to die in the final season.

However, the truth is yet to be confirmed. None of the character's fate is known. From Jon Snow to Daenerys, none of the big shots from Westeros are safe at the moment as the screenwriter, David Benioff doesn't pick a favorite.

Conleth's Varys is also one of the possible characters to be beheaded, burnt by the dragons, or die in a gruesome death in the next episodes.

Whatever be in the screen, Conleth has bagged several awards in his career for different roles. He won the Oscar for "The Shore" for Best Live Action Short and also won the Drama Desk Award for "The Seafarer." That shows how much he has accomplished in his career.

Also, the success he has earned in his career has helped him make a net worth of $2 million.

Did you know, Conleth's brother is also a part of GOT but, hasn't yet appeared onscreen? The actor's sibling Ronan is a sound designer on GOT and has already won four Emmy Awards for his works.
