Los Angeles: Actor Rory McCann has revealed that he wants his `Game of Thrones` character The Hound to return to the show.

The Hound was last seen presumably falling to his death after a brutal fight with Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) over the safety of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams), reportedly.

McCann hopes that The Hound was merely injured in the battle, rather than killed outright. "It wasn`t looking good, was it? If he opens his mouth, and `blubbbb`, the blood comes out, that`s not looking good. There`s always hope, but, I don`t know," he said.

McCann added that he has been "really pleased" with the reaction of `Game of Thrones` fans to his and Gwendoline Christie`s on-screen fight.

"We actually didn`t hurt each other, so to actually do that and we came off with just cuts and bruises and a little bit sore, I think that was quite an accomplishment," he said.

`Game of Thrones` announced nine new cast members ? including Jonathan Pryce and Alexander Siddig ? at Comic-Con International in July.
