SCOTS actor Rory McCann is best known for killing foes on screen but more recently showed Ayrshire pub-goers he can slay on the dancefloor too.
GAME of Thrones star The Hound lived up to his wildman image when he was spotted roaring like a lion to a Beyonce hit on the dance floor of a backstreet boozer.
Better known for mercilessly slaying opponents on the smash hit TV show, Sandor “The Hound” Clegane – played by Scots actor Rory McCann – let loose to Single Ladies at a pub in Ayr after being egged on by starstruck locals.
A Game of Thrones fan was stunned to see her TV hero boogie in the Smoking Goat pub in Academy Street.
She said: “I recognised him as soon as he walked in – he’s so tall he barely fits through the door.
“He’s a really lovely guy and had some pretty good dance moves.
“He got up to all the Single Ladies and it got a few laughs from the girls.
Another local added: “He let out a few big roars, which the ladies liked – I think he was letting off some steam.”
The actor previously played the kilt-wearing hunk from the Scott’s Porage Oats adverts, and starred as dim-witted Lurch in silver screen comedy hit Hot Fuzz – a far cry from his previous job painting the Forth Road Bridge.
Six-foot-six McCann is known to shun the limelight. But when he hit the town in Ayr, where he docks his boat, he was spotted by two sharp-eyed locals who got in tow with the actor.
The trio made their way to the trendy pub where they partied until closing time and the generous Glasgow-born star slipped £200 behind the bar to keep the booze flowing.
Despite getting a grilling from fellow revellers, he refused to reveal any spoilers.
Game of Thrones fans are baying for blood after speculation The Hound might face off once again with his on-screen brother The Mountain in a much anticipated clash – dubbed the Cleganebowl.
And after his fancy footwork, The Hound is firm favourite to emerge victorious – at least among his Ayrshire fans.
