The actor also explained how the sitting Pope informed his work as the High Sparrow on 'Game of Thrones.' Jonathan Pryce never thought he resembled Pope Francis until an internet meme surfaced comparing the likeness. But in addition to sharing the sitting monsignor’s physical attributes, the actor known for his work on Game of Thrones said that the Pope’s politics is what attracted him to the role. “I feel very empathetic to his politics and what he can do as an influential figure and what he can do for the church but society at large,” Pryce told The Hollywood Reporter at the TCL Chinese Theatre red carpet on Monday at AFI Fest.
