It may be a vehicle for a great deal of British acting talent, but ‘Game of Thrones’ is apparently unwilling to accommodate Danny Dyer. The ‘Eastenders’ star has apparently auditioned for the HBO smash series on three separate occasions, only to be rejected.
Dyer revealed during a recording of ITV’s ‘Jonathan Ross Show’ “I’ve been up for it three times, I got three knockbacks”. Dame Diana Rigg, another guest on Ross’ show and who plays Lady Olenna Tyrell in ‘Game of Thrones’, said “I’ll put in a word for you as long as you lose the cockney accent.”

The BBC wants its soap opera to better reflect how East London has changed since the 80s.
BBC One's EastEnders is set to change so that it can better "reflect the modern world" after being "frozen in aspic for too long," according to the soap's recently-appointed new executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins.
The Social Landscape Of East London Has Evolved Since The Eighties.
Having been set in the east of London since its debut in 1985, EastEnders' working class aesthetic now seems incongruous with the trendy, hipster art scene that has taken over the eastern boroughs of Shoreditch and Hackney. "It should feel more like London. It's been frozen in aspic for too long," Treadwell-Collins told the latest issue of Radio Times. "Sharon said recently that she's looking to be a landlady and as a result you'll see the edges of Shoreditch creeping into EastEnders. It's got to reflect the modern world."
