Our own Hollywood Joseph gets a taste of the fantastical Seven Kingdoms of Westeros when he meets “Game of Thrones” star Charles Dance!
Hey friends! You might have guessed that I can work up quite an appetite after meeting and greeting all our fun fans at the Hollywood Wax Museum … so don’t be surprised if you ever see me heading down the street to the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for a bite to eat. There’s a very cool burger joint right inside the hotel called 25 Degrees … you can have your burger any way you like it! Different toppings, all kinds of sauces. They even have a Yellowfin Tuna burger! Who knew?!
Anyway, imagine my surprise when — just as I was tucking into my delicious food — I spied one of my favorite actors walking into the hotel … it was Game of Thrones star Charles Dance! I was so excited, I put my yummy burger down and asked for a quick photo. I couldn’t believe my luck! I mean, he’s so great as Tywin Lannister on Game of Thrones every week … but I also remember him from my childhood; he played the villain Benedict in one of my favorite movies as a kid, Last Action Hero starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. That was back in 1993, and let me tell you — Charles doesn’t look a day older!
Charles and I chatted about when Game of Thrones is returning to HBO — we’ve gotta wait until Spring 2014! — and how the show was recently nominated for an amazing 16 Emmy Awards. Afterwards, he went on his merry way … while I made my way back to my dinner. And I made sure to save room for one of 25 Degrees’ famous Salted Caramel Pudding desserts! Working in Hollywood is seriously the best …
What a great sighting, Joseph! Thanks for telling us your story! Readers, do you have a favorite character on Game of Thrones? Do you remember Charles as the villain in The Last Action Hero? Let us know in the comments below!
