Paddy Was Diagnosed With Asperger And Irlen Syndrome

By the time Paddy was in his mid-30s, many things had caught up with him. 

He was diagnosed with mild Asperger's syndrome, and then he discovered he had a condition named Irlen syndrome. 

Because of the Irlen syndrome, he has to wear glasses from time to time. 

He explained that it's a light sensitivity issue and how the brain processes the light. 

He revealed that he was living in quite a scary world, and he would go into a sort of situation like in supermarkets where all the visual information would make him panic. 

It was very overwhelming for him to cope with all those situations. 

He was struggling to establish eye contact with people. He was getting more and more withdrawn. For him, it was a difficult phase. 

But fortunately, he met the right people at the right time in his life who helped him in his recovery. 

Paddy Got The Role Of King Visery Without Auditioning

Paddy is popular for his role as King Viserys in the series House of Dragons. His character and acting skills were admirable. 

However, his character ended as King Viserys died in the eighth episode of season one. 

Paddy revealed that it took a very long time to shoot episode eight, and as soon as his work was done, he crawled out of there. 

He enjoyed playing the character, but as it was his last day on the set and it took a long time, he got exhausted and wanted to go out. 

Playing King Viserys's role was a whole new experience for him. He didn't even audition for his role. He felt extremely grateful and happy when he found that he would play that role. 

The director, Anthony Mingels, was the one who got him into the role, and he has absolutely no idea what potential Anthony saw in him. 

He has experience working at a workshop with Anthony, but Anthony did let him get the role when he told Anthony that he didn't like the character. 

Anthony kindly told him that if he didn't love the character, then he wouldn't be able to play, and that was the time when he knew that actors should love their character so that they could live the character. 

When he received the script and read it, he got interested immediately; moreover, he loved the character because his character had his own story. 

He took the character seriously, and it was his first time playing a whole new type of character in his whole acting career. For that, Paddy feels honored.

Paddy Hates Seeing Himself On Screen

Paddy is a talented actor known for his appearance in House of Dragons. 

He has played in many shows throughout his career, and his performance always wins the heart. 

But in the interview with Rich Eisen Show, Paddy revealed that he hates seeing himself act on the screen, so he avoids seeing his shows. 

However, he did watch the eighth episode of House and Dragons

He was forced to watch that episode by his wife. His wife and daughter were watching the episode in the next room, and suddenly, his wife came to him and started saying that he must watch it. 

Paddy said no because he doesn’t like seeing his acting. He explained that he does the show and makes peace with him, thinking that he did a great job, but if he watches his acting and finds something off, his mind flips out, so he prefers not watching it. 

Yet his wife forced him to see it. He saw almost everything: the walk, the throne, his speech scene, and his passing out scene.

When he saw the scene of him passing out after his speech at the dinner, he saw his dad’s image on his face. 

Paddy’s dad died of cancer, and he saw his dad dying, and because of that, his passing-out scene made him emotional.

When he finished watching episode eight, he felt satisfied seeing his acting. 

He felt that he learned a lot and great did on the show. Paddy never went to acting school, but he did theater, so he considers theater as his acting class. 

He also said that he thought of quitting acting many times because he always thought he wasn’t good enough. 

Yet he didn’t, as he got opportunities and made his career in acting.


Her husband, Paddy, is 48 years old.

Her husband's net worth is estimated to be $4 million. He has managed to earn this fortune from his career as an actor, filmmaker, and musician.
