Simon Pegg turned down a part in the popular Game of Thrones.
The actor did so because he’s a fan of the series.
“I’m a filmgoer as much as a film actor,” said Pegg. “Someone asked me the other day if I wanted to be in Game of Thrones, and I said ‘No’. The reason was because I love the show so much that I don’t want to see behind the curtain!”
Deep Space Nine‘s Alexander Siddig was a Trek actor who didn’t say “no” to a role on the hit series. Star Trek into Darkness‘ Joseph Gatt has also appeared on the show.
