Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden has earned himself a role in Marvel’s The Eternals but what else has the actor appeared in?
Richard Madden, best known for his portrayal of Robb Stark in the HBO show Game of Thrones, has landed himself a role in Marvel’s The Eternals, a new film potentially heading to phase 4 of the MCU.
Now, that film is probably still years away from seeing the light of a cinema screening but work has begun to assemble an all-star cast for the movie and Richard Madden will join Angelina Jolie when shooting on the film begins later this year.
But until The Eternals finally makes it on screen, we’ll have to manage with what Richard Madden has already appeared in.
As mentioned earlier, Madden’s best-known role is that of Robb Stark in Game of Thrones but beyond that, what else has the Scottish actor appeared in?
Up first, we have the film closest on Richard Madden’s horizon, the Elton John biopic, Rocketman.
In the film, Madden joins Taron Egerton, who’s playing Elton John himself, as John Reid, Elton’s manager and, for a time, lover.
Rocketman is set to release in cinemas on May 31, 2019.
In 2018, Madden appeared alongside Keely Hawes in the massively popular BBC One drama, Bodyguard.
Madden takes on the role of Police Sergeant David Budd, was PTSD-suffering war veteran-turned-bodyguard for the UK’s foreign secretary whose controversial politics he despises.
Madden’s performance in the role earned him impressive recognition with a Golden Globe win for his efforts.
Bastille Day (2016)
Onto one of Madden’s more major film roles now with 2016’s Bastille Day in which Madden stars alongside Idris Elba.
After unknowingly getting involved in a supposed terrorist plot, Madden’s Michael Mason, little more than a pickpocket, teams up with Elba’s CIA agent, Sean Briar, as they work to uncover a plot by a group of corrupt French policemen.
The film is also a great advertisement for two of the actors many are calling to be the next James Bond.
Medici: Masters of Florence (2016)
In 2016, Madden appeared in the first series of Medici: Masters of Florence, an anglo-Italian TV series co-created by minds behind the X-Files, The Man in the High Castle and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
In the show, Madden plays Cosimo de’ Medici, a huge figure in the ruling of Florence during the Italian Renaissance.
The second season, titled Medici: The Magnificent, would go on to star fellow Game of Thrones actor Sean Bean and both series can currently be watched on Netflix.
Moving onto Madden’s arguably biggest film role now, we come to 2015’s live-action remake of the Disney classic Cinderella.
Unsurprisingly, Madden portrays the film’s prince. The most interesting thing of note about Madden’s involvement in the Cinderella remake is that film’s director Kenneth Branagh also directed Madden in the 2016 stage performance of Romeo and Juliet.
Barmy Aunt Boomerang (1999-2000)
And finally, we come to Madden’s first ever acting role. Aged just 13, Richard Madden appeared in the BBC’s children’s programme Barmy Aunt Boomerang.
The show ran for two series before coming to an end in 2000 and a young Madden appeared in 20 of the show’s 30 episodes.
And there we have it, are you looking forward to seeing Richard Madden in Rocketman or Marvel’s Eternals?
