    In an exclusive interview with EW, the Doctor Strange star shared a fun little fact as his co-star and great friend Liam Cunningham was sitting beside him. The 52-year-old actor revealed how he almost snagged a role in the world of Westeros when David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the creators of the show told Ben about a character they had in mind for him. 

    The ‘Marco Polo’ star started, “I think it was for a role of a banker or something,” and Cunningham, the man behind Ser Davos finished. Liam said, “You would’ve been in a scene with me! In the Bank of Braavos.”

    The ‘GOT’ star gave more context on the plotline our Mr magician could’ve fallen into. “Me and Stephen Dillane need to get some money to start a war. That would’ve been cool!” He finished.
