John Bradley is finding his Game of Thrones fame has its downside.

“I had one fan come up to me,” the 25-year-old actor, who plays Samwell Tarly, related to me.

“He said, 'I love Game of Thrones’.

I said, 'Thank you’.

He said, 'Can I ask one question?’

I said, 'Of course’.

He said: 'Why are you still so fat?’

Bradley's character is a friend of Kit Harington's Jon Snow and provides occasional comic relief in Game of Thrones.

The character contrasts as a cowardly puppy-like member of the Night's Watch against his friend Jon's dour steely quality.

Bradley has also spoken about how much more action this season contains.

"I think this season is as consistently action packed as any season has been before. The action has to keep on coming and we have to keep that ball in the air."

He also added: "There is not enough sexy Sam!"

Game of Thrones will be simulcast in the UK and US for the first time ever.
