John Bradley Aims to Break Free from ‘Game of Thrones’ Typecasting with ‘3 Body Problem’

  • Bradley felt limited after Game of Thrones but was cast as Jack Rooney in 3 Body Problem
  • Benioff and Weiss wrote Rooney specifically for Bradley without revealing much about the series
  • Bradley hopes this role will show his wider range of acting chops and dreams of collaborating with Emerald Fennell

Alright, buckle up folks, because we’re about to dive into the wild and wacky world of John Bradley and his quest to break out of his “Game of Thrones” character bracket with a little help from the new series, “3 Body Problem.”

So, picture this: John Bradley, known to many as the lovable Samwell Tarly from “Game of Thrones,” was feeling a bit stuck in the same old roles after his time in Westeros. But then, along came “3 Body Problem” and the character of Jack Rooney, specifically written for him by Benioff and Weiss. Talk about a game-changer!

Now, Bradley wasn’t given too much info about the series at first, just that it was a sci-fi project. But hey, when Benioff and Weiss come calling, you answer with a resounding yes. And after diving into the source material, Bradley was blown away by the sheer audacity of the adaptation. I mean, tackling “The Three-Body Problem” is no small feat, but our boy Bradley was up for the challenge.

Fast forward to Rooney’s untimely demise in episode three of the series, and Bradley admits he felt a slight sense of being put out at first. I mean, who wouldn’t when you’re suddenly faced with a violent death scene? But hey, this is Benioff and Weiss we’re talking about – masters of the unexpected demise. And let’s not forget, Sam Tarly made it to the end of “Game of Thrones,” so Bradley had nothing to fear.

Speaking of that death scene, Bradley spilled the beans on how it was actually a medley of three separate takes shot over nine months. Talk about dedication! And the vulnerability he brought to Jack in that moment? Pure gold.

But surprise, surprise, it wasn’t Jack’s death scene that was the most challenging for Bradley. No, it was the heartfelt scene with Will on the bench that really tested his acting chops. And can we just take a moment to appreciate the depth of Jack’s character? A true friend with a bit of a devilish streak – what’s not to love?

And let’s not forget Bradley’s hopes for the future. He’s looking to show audiences his wider range of acting chops with “3 Body Problem.” A bit of a reset, if you will, from his Samwell Tarly days. And hey, his dream collaborator? None other than Emerald Fennell, because who wouldn’t want to work with such a talented and visionary director?

So there you have it, folks. John Bradley, breaking out of his “Game of Thrones” character bracket one sci-fi adventure at a time. Who knows what the future holds for our lovable Samwell Tarly? Share this article with your friends and let’s spread the Bradley love far and wide!
