opportunity to appear in the show and was careful not to make the same mistake again for the forthcoming prequel series.

Paddy said to an agent about how he did not desire to read the script of Game of Thrones after it was handed to him.

He explained"It's about dragons. I said"no thank you. I've not even gone through the book," Paddy said

Paddy will play the role of King Viserys Targaryen from House of the Dragon the role that the actor says was motivated by his mother's struggles and her battle with diabetes.

If anything, Viserys was inspired by my mother. The woman was the most influential I've ever met for a long period of time. 

She was a great leader until she shirked herself." the man said. "By the time she died, my mom was suffering from diabetes.

I adored my mum. Her illness was her sanctuary. It was devastating to watch her decline, and I incorporated the blame on her love and kindness into Viserys.
