John Bradley (Sam) reveals why he joined Game of Thrones showrunners’ new Netflix series



Devoted viewers of Game of Thrones are still thinking about the controversy around season 8. People continue to speak about HBO’s successful mint even after the show’s production ended nearly four years ago. After all, a divisive and rushed final season left fans of the very popular and beloved program divided. Despite this, the show’s alum John Bradley chose to work with the showrunners in a new TV show, who are blamed for running the HBO epic.

John Bradley’s reasoning to work in 3 Body Problem

Bradley is playing one of the leads in Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss’ 3 Body Problem, even though fans still loathe them. He told, “When I finished Game of Thrones, which was such a significant part of my life, the idea of doing movies where you only commit for a couple of months and then move on to something else was really appealing.

However, my former Game of Thrones bosses, David and Dan, approached me with a show they had written for Netflix – their first project after Game of Thrones. They asked if I would like to join them and be a part of it. I think I have had a long enough break in-between to go back into series now so I’m doing the Netflix show with them. It’s nearly finished so that will be out towards the end of the year!”

John Bradley learned this valuable lesson from the film industry

Bradley also shared what he learned from his time in the industry, “It’s about not being afraid to turn things down and not do them, if you believe you’re not doing them for the right reasons. In an industry where uncertainty is so prevalent and you’re never sure if you’ll work again, it’s tempting to grab hold of everything.

However, if your gut instinct is telling you that something feels off or that it’s not a character you want to play, or there are problematic elements to it, then simply trust your own instincts and choose not to do it. I’d rather have regrets about not doing something than regret doing it.”
