Mad Max: Fury Road star Nicholas Hoult has admitted he stole one of Liam Cunningham's yarns in order to impress at his audition.
The 25-year-old actor was asked to tell a story at the audition so he relayed Game of Thrones star Liam's dramatic wedding story.
The New Zealand Herald reports he said, "The bride got grease on her skirt and they got petrol filtered out of a tank to get this grease off and then they poured it down the toilet.
"She was fine, she went down the aisle. But then the grandad of the family, he liked to smoke a pipe, so he went to the toilet at one point... sat down on the toilet, lit his pipe, had a puff and then threw the match in the toilet and it exploded.
"He had to be carried out on a stretcher. It was, like, this huge disaster story, and the whole time, like, the casting director was looking around the camera, going, 'No way'.
"I told it as if I was there. I lied."
Hoult bagged the role of Nux in Mad Mad: Fury Road opposite co-stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.
The stars hit the red carpet last night for the LA premiere of the film, the fourth instalment in the series, directed by George Miller.
They were joined by Mel Gibson who starred in the original movie back in 1979, although Gibson was not offered a role in the fourth outing because, according to Miller, it would be like "seeing Sean Connery appear in a Daniel Craig Bond film".
