As per the latest Game of Thrones rumours, Ned Stark, the patriarch of the unfortunate Stark family who was beheaded in Season 1, might be seen again in Season 5 flashback scenes, and fans couldn't be more excited about the possibility.

Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean, who played Ned, said in a recent interview that he would love to return to the show in Season 5. Post his statement, fans of the show have posted several tweets saying they want the actor back in the season.

Meanwhile, filming for Game of Thrones Season 5 is about to start, if Maisie Williams' Twitter account is anything to go by, reports The New Zealand Herald. The young actress, who plays Arya Stark in the popular series, posted a tweet hinting that she was preparing to film the next installment of the fantasy show.

"The modern adornments would certainly look out of place in the show's rustic setting in the fictional realm of Westeros, where Williams' character dresses more like a tomboy who is ready for battle at a moment's notice," states the NZ Herald report.

Game of Thrones Season 5 is expected to air in April 2015, on HBO.
