Game of Thrones is one of the most popular Television series in the world. It entertained the fans and also helped many young actors like Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke to become household names. Another such actor was Richard Madden, who played the King in the North, Robb Stark for three seasons.
In the last episode of season 3, Robb gets brutally murdered during the Red Wedding. However, since GOT, Richard has found success with shows like Bodyguard (2018), which won him a Golden Globe, this year.
While promoting his upcoming film, Rocketman, on Jimmy Fallon's talk show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Richard recalled his Game of Thrones days and made a very interesting revelation. Before his big break in GOT, Richard was living off 5 bucks a day. Madden was on his last month's rent when he finally got the call for the HBO series and hence, he asked his agent for an advance and that helped him get through the next few months. The actor also stated that if he did not get the part of Robb Stark, the would have had to move back to his parents' house.
Richard also recalled the first time he met co-stars Kit Harington and Alfie Allen during the season 1 table read of Game of Thrones. Recently, the actor had shared a throwback photo of the trio on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Rocketman, which is a biopic on the legendary musician Elton John, stars Taron Edgerton and is slated to release on May 31, 2019.
