‘Game of Thrones’ Star Charles Dance Was Victim of Phone Hacking

0

Charles Dance was shocked when police told him he was among the victims of Britain’s phone hacking scandal.

The Game of Thrones star has revealed officers in the U.K. alerted him to the issue during the height of the furore, which led to the closure of Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World in 2011 amid claims a private investigator hacked the voicemail accounts of celebrities and crime victims on behalf of the tabloid.

Several journalists were jailed as a result, and a number of stars, including Jude Law and Steve Coogan, have accepted damages over the phone hacking, and now Dance has revealed he was also among the victims.

He was alerted when police found his phone number on documents relating to their investigation.

Dance tells Thedailybeast.com, “I had a call from the police who said, ‘Did you know that your number came up?’ and it made sense, because certain things would appear in papers and I’d think, ‘How the f**k did they know that?'”
