In a message posted to Johnson's Facebook page, the actor's manager Roger Hoy revealed Johnson "has chosen not to receive any chemotherapy." From Smash to Revolution : Get the scoop on NBC's midseason shows Nonetheless, Johnson "is currently in good spirits, is not yet suffering any physical effects and can expect to enjoy at least another few months of reasonable health and activity." Long before he started chopping off heads in Westeros, Johnson was famous as the guitarist and songwriter for the 1970s Brit band Dr. Feelgood. And it seems the actor wants to go out on a high note.
