"Game of Thrones" Actor Has Part of Ear Bitten Off 

Clive Mason /Allsport(LONDON) -- Clive Mantle, who starred in the first season of Game of Thrones as Lord Greatjon Umber, had part of his ear bitten off at a U.K. hotel last Sunday. The 55-year-old actor was attacked at a Newcastle-upon-Tyne Travelodge in a dispute over noise, his agent told the BBC.

A spokesman for the agent told the BBC he believed Mantle was pinned to the floor in the hotel and attacked after asking other guests to keep the noise down.

The rep continued: "He is very shaken and shocked by what has happened, you don't expect this kind of thing to happen in a hotel. The part of the ear that was bitten off was found and sewn back on. Mr. Mantle said the police, ambulance and hospital staff were amazing."

A 32-year-old man from South Lanarkshire in Scotland was charged with wounding with intent. He will appear before a magistrate’s court next month.
