A farmer appearing on First Dates Ireland and Games of Throne in the course of one year now that’s a first. Or is it?
Well Wicklow-based farming man George Beattie is proof of the pudding, starring in both hit series.
The bearded sheep and beef farmer continues to shine our screens and has since successfully broken away from the farm for his debut appearance as a stark guard on Game of Thrones.
Speaking to Independent.ie , Beattie "My friend works on the show and I'd been pestering him for months for a part and I finally got the chance when an extra pulled out at the last minute,"
Independent.ie revealed that George found himself sharing the screens with household names and leading stars including Sophie Turner (Sansa), Maisie Williams (Arya), Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran) and Aidan Gillen (Petyr 'Littlefinger' Baelish).
Mr. Beattie caused quite a stir during his appearance on First Dates Ireland a little earlier this year and his comments on sandwich-making may just stand out in memory.
We are still trying to gets our heads around that one but as for Game of Thrones Don’t believe us? Take a look here for yourself!
