Who Is Stephen Dillane? Five Things to Know About the Game of Thrones Star
Game of Thrones fans know Stephen Dillane best as one of the contenders for the Iron Throne, Stannis Baratheon, but, much like on the show, there’s a lot going on under the surface. Here are five facts about Stephen that even the most ardent GoT fan might not know.
1. His son is also an actor. Stephen’s son, Frank Dillane, has had small roles in a few movies, including fellow fantasy Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (he played teenage Lord Voldemort).
2. He won a Tony! Many GoT actors are veterans of the stage, and Stephen is no exception. He won a Tony Award in 2000 for his role in The Real Thing.
3. He was a journalist. Before deciding to become an actor, Stephen worked as a journalist for three years for the Croydon Advertiser.
