'Game of Thrones' Actor Michael Condron Joins ASDA
Michael Condron believes every single guy's got a role to play during this crisis.
'Game of Thrones' actor Michael Condron revealed he's going to work at Asda as a delivery driver amid the global health crisis due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Between 2015 and 2016, Condron played Bowen Marsh, the Lord Steward of the Night's Watch in the hit HBO series. The actor explained he decided to join the supermarket in Northern Ireland.
The GOT star told Belfast Live,
Every single person has a role to play in these times. People now should really appreciate the hard work that everybody does – I think people who work in supermarkets have often been taken for granted.
The actor added, "A friend of mine said Asda were looking for people to work there so I got in touch." He went down, got down, and absolutely loved it. The job means he can continue to interact with people like he does in theatre. "It's kept me mentally in a good place and it continues to do so."
Condron admitted he's having a brilliant time meeting people. As a matter of fact, he's been doing 17 to 18 calls a day.
The 34-year-old also revealed some customers recognized him from the HBO drama asking him, "Aren't you that guy off the telly?"
