With Game of Thrones now on his CV, the
London-born actor is on his way to stardom

NAME: Joseph Quinn USP: new kid on the acting block

WHAT WAS THE WHOLE GAME OF
THRONES EXPERIENCE LIKE?
Mad. I'm such a fan! I don't know what
I was expecting - maybe lobster for
breakfast and gold encrusted cameras
- but on arrival, of course, it's just
another film set. It was fun, everyone
was lovely and scenes were great to do.
All professionalism went out of the
window as soon as I was given a sword.
HOW DID YOU BREAK INTO ACTING?
I wouldn't say I have. I still consider
myself as a cap in hand actor and it's
rare for one job to enable you to 'break
through', as it were. It's a culmination

of the work you've done that leads to
more, I think - or hope.
WAS DRAMA SCHOOL TOUGH?
It was a big help for me, I've been
incredibly lucky. Sure I've had periods
of unemployment but I've been able to
sustain myself; stay clothed, fed and
warm through acting, which I'm grateful
for - and quite baffled by.
HOW EXCITING WAS HOWARDS END?
Brilliant, but without a doubt the most
rigorous audition process I've been
through - five rounds! But working on
a script written by his magnificence,
Kenneth Lonergan, was surreal and
an enormous privilege.
ANYONE YOU'D LOVE TO WORK WITH?
Joaquin Phoenix, Cate Blanchett and
Mark Rylance are acting royalty for me.
And working with Maggie Gyllenhaal in
The Deuce would be amazing.

If you're reading this, Maggie, tell
the director to sign me up for the
second series of The Deuce...

Thrones. More recently, he starred in

COMEDY

SARA PASCOE:
LADS LADS LADS
As any fan of the current
circuit will attest, Sara
Pascoe is one of the best
comedians of this - or
indeed any - generation.
This show, which chronicles
the comic's attempts at
singledom following a
break-up, is pure Pascoe:
clever, thoughtful and
riotously funny. A real treat.
