Most of the celebrities we see on the big screen started from humble beginnings. Some of the Game of Thrones stars joined the series young. They sort of grew up with the series like Maisie Williams (Arya Stark). Others joined the show when they were already famous. Like the Scottish actor Iain Glenn, who played the heroic knight Ser Jorah Mormont.

Iain didn’t initially consider acting as a career. He was kind of forced into it by his friends while studying at Aberdeen University. Glenn talked to the Irish Examiner about his humble beginnings.

It was there that friends of mine got involved and I was slightly dragged against my will into it. I had no idea what actors were and that you could earn a living for what they did.”

He continued, “I felt that I could occupy that space in my imagination where I believe the world in which I was standing in and seemed to be able to project that in a small way. I just got really addicted very quickly for that feeling. I bumped into it very accidentally, I had no great desire, I didn’t even know what it was until I was 18, really.”

Iain Glenn is one of the best Scottish actors currently in the entertainment industry. What do you think of his story? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones showcased some of the finest warriors in fantastical television history. Out of all the warriors on the show, Ser Gregor Clegane (The Mountain) was the most feared of all. How did they make the character so fierce? The Mountain was played by the world’s strongest man Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson himself!

Björnsson has vowed to destroy long-time rival Eddie Hall at the World’s Heaviest Boxing match. Eddie Hall, however, is taking no s**t from the Game of Thrones actor. Both of them have been training really hard for the fight. Taunting your opponent before a bout is an effective strategy to get a hold of them mentally.

Thor is very confident of his victory against Hall. He told Metro that he is going to knock Hall twice. The strongman also wants to fight Tyson Fury after his bout is over.

Björnsson said, “There’s probably going to be a rematch against Eddie Hall, so I’ll be in the sport for probably the next two years. After the rematch, we’ll see how I feel, how much I have improved. I’m not getting any younger – I’m 32 years old so I need to improve very fast if I see myself competing more.”

He added, “If the right opportunity came along…Let’s say in the Eddie fight…obviously my plan is to knock him out. When I do anything I always look at the top and the top right now is Tyson Fury obviously, but we’ll see in two years’ time who is on top then.”

Finding a soulmate is one of the best things that can ever happen to someone. Especially in a world full of tragedies and problems we’re currently facing. Everyone needs that somebody who helps them find a connection to this world. Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams is living the time of her life with her boyfriend Reuben Selby. They recently talked to Tatler about gender norms and labels.

“Reuben doesn’t really see clothing as having any specific gender,” she explained. “It’s just an image.”

“I’ve always felt fluid, but I don’t think it would be right for me to label it like that because it’s a difficult conversation,” Reuben said. “I don’t really have any boundaries.” She also reflected at her time on Game of Thrones.

“I miss the people, absolutely,” Maisie said. “It was such a great connection that we all had. We were on the most successful show of all time, but when you’re in it, you don’t get to do anything else but be on the show.”

Maisie is currently set to play a model, superfan and punk icon Jordan in Steve Jones’ biopic. The 6-episode-series begins production on March 7.

The seeds to the flower of success can be found in the most unexpected of places. There are times when it takes a while to realise our passion. When your passion becomes your job, work turns out to be enjoyable. Many Game of Thrones stars had their humble beginnings starting at a theatre, like Aidan Gillen. Then, there’s Liam Cunningham, who found his passion for acting in the green suburbs of Africa.

The 59-year-old actor who played Davos Seaworth on Game of Thrones recently talked to The Times, UK in an interview. He reflected on his time as an electrician in Africa. He said, “I came back from Africa at 25. Having been with 16 000 elephants, looking after the national park, which is the size of Belgium – when you go back to driving a yellow van around Dublin, it just doesn’t have the same glamour.”

I was kind of bored after the expanse of Zimbabwe and was looking for a distraction. I saw an ad in the back of a newspaper for an acting school. I was looking for a hobby, but I completely fell in love with the process of acting. And hence you find me talking about Game of Thrones, 20-odd years later. Africa was the reason I became an actor.”
