As Viserys Targaryen, Paddy has a coveted seat on the Iron Throne. Away from Westeros, the actor is a two-time Bafta-winner, although these awards were for his work as a director on the short film Dog Altogether and the feature Tyrannosaur (starring Olivia Colman and Peter Mullan).

His on-screen credits include films like 24 Hour Party People, The Bourne Ultimatum, Hot Fuzz and How To Build A Girl, as well as the TV series Peaky Blinders, portraying Father John Hughes, and The Suspicions Of Mr Whicher.

Paddy has also directed music videos for acts including Coldplay and the Arctic Monkeys.
