It has been four years since we last saw Ned Stark, the former Lord of Winterfell. But Sean Bean still continues to talk about "Game of Thrones," blowing up the Internet by confirming huge fan theories, and now giving some advice.

With Season 5 of the HBO series weeks away, we know things are only getting darker for the Stark kids. Arya will undergo a major identity shift, while Sansa will have a "super, super traumatic" scene. So what would Ned do if he could come back to life and help out his kids?

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor shared Ned's advice for the young Starks. “He’d probably have said, ‘Just stay at home in the castle, with your mum.’” Hey Bean, you do know what happened to their "mum," right? Maybe he's referring to the pilot, but either way there'd be no show, and no fun, if that happened.

For the full interview, head to Entertainment Weekly.

"Game of Thrones" returns on Sunday, April 12 at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
