    Dear Everyone, This Is Harry Lloyd

    "Oh riiight, you're the creepy guy in the blonde wig from Game of Thrones."

    For some time now I've been troubled by people asking who my favorite actor is. Partly because there are so many greats to choose from, and partly because one of my answers always springs the question, "Who the hell is that?" I'm speaking, of course, about Harry Lloyd.

    He's been popping up in some of our favorite shows for years, and it seems like no one has ever really given him credit for his tremendous talent. He's been sweet, brave, and fiercely loyal as Will Scarlett in BBC's Robin Hood

    He was twisted and maniacal as Jeremy Baines in BBC's Doctor Who

    Charming and so lovable as Herbert Pocket in the BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations. (Dickens is also his great-great-great grandfather...nbd)

    He also brought to life Dostoyevsky's "Underground Man" in his own adaptation of Notes From Underground.

    It seems, though, that most people recognize him as Viserys Targaryen, the Dragon King from HBO's Game of Thrones.


    Just a few weeks ago, he gave us all the wonderful mini web-series that is Supreme Tweeter. You can watch it at

    I encourage you to watch not only this, but his other roles as well. And let's all give Mr. Lloyd a round of applause!
