spoilers, it seems we’ve had an unexpected windfall.Ian McShane, who will have a small but important role in the HBO drama’s upcoming sixth season, recently told Pop Goes the News that he’ll be involved in the resurrection of a (most likely) dead character.
“I am responsible for bringing somebody back that you think you’re never going to see again. I’ll leave it at that,” he told the site.

The obvious choice, of course, is Kit Harington’s Jon Snow, who was stabbed repeatedly at the end of the fifth season — fatally so, if the show’s Powers That Be are to be believed.
But other contenders include Lady Stonehart, aka a vengeance-filled, raised-from-the-dead Catelyn Stark who appears in the books, and the Hound, who was suffering from life-threatening injuries when Arya left him for dead. Either of these possibilities,
points out, could mean that McShane will play a combination of the books’ Septon Meribald and the Elder Brother.

Game of Thrones: 8 Theories About Jon Snow in Season 6
From what I remember people guessing, he’s likely bringing back Sean Bean in the form of a younger Ned Stark because aren’t people guessing he is part of the expected flashback scene from the Tower of Joy. If you want to be technical, Jon Snow would be part of that scene too if the theory is true but he’d just be a baby.
He never said that he was responsible for bringing back a *dead* character. I’m going to take a shot in the dark and say he’s one of the Umbers, or Wyman Manderly, and he’s bringing back Rickon Stark.
According to IMDB, Essie Davis (star of the wonderful Australian series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries) will appear in (at least) season six, episode one as “Lady Stark.”
All of these years of waiting for Lady Stoneheart have killed my anticipation for that moment.
