When you are an up and coming actor, it is a dream to work with some of the stars who have been there and done that. British star Sir Ian McKellen is one of the best in the business and many stars would love to have the chance to work with such a talented and successful actor, which is just what Iwan Rheon got to do.
Most of you will recognise Iwan Rheon from his role as Ramsay Bolton, the torturer of Theon Greyjoy, in the hit television series Game of Thrones. Well Iwan Rheon stars with Ian McKellen in the new PBS series Vicious and, while you would expect Iwan to be in awe of Ian, it seems that it is actually the other way round, as Ian had nothing but praise for the young actor.
McKellen explained, "He may have been over impressed by working with two old codgers, but frankly, the reverse is true on working with young people who know effortlessly how to be charming and get a laugh and behave as a … professional like Iwan does is – it’s a joy and I think, why did it take me so long to learn what he already seems to know."
You can catch Iwan Rheon and Ian McKellen, along with co-star Derek Jacobi, in the new PBS series Vicious, which will premiere on July 6 and run for six episodes. As for Game of Thrones, fans of that series only have a few more weeks to wait for the fourth season of the series, which will premiere on HBO on April 6.
