    Paddy Considine turned down ‘Game of Thrones’ role without even reading the script

    Paddy Considine (Knockdown, The Outsider) revealed that when his agent approached him to star in Game of Thrones, he turned it down without even looking at the script.

    “I was told, ‘It’s about dragons,’” the actor explained. And I said, “No thanks.” I didn’t even read the script.

    This decision resulted in Considine missing out on the opportunity to star in one of the biggest shows in television history. When he got the chance to join the franchise again (in the House of the Dragon prequel series), he tried not to make the same mistake. In the show, he plays King Viserys Targaryen.

    Considine revealed that the character was inspired by his mother, who had been battling diabetes for a long time. Watching the decline of a man he respected, and at the same time watching how she retains her spirit, influenced his idea of ​​a king at a critical time in his reign.

    The prequel series tells about the civil strife in House Targaryen 200 years before the events of the original project. The roles in the show, in addition to Considine, are played by Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Millie Alcock, Eve Best, Emily Carey.

    House of the Dragon premieres on HBO on August 21. In “Amediatek” a day later will take place its Russian premiere.
