News To Me: Game of Thrones Fan Favorite Was Once A Simon Cowell-Backed Popstar

Well.  This comes as a surprise!

Apparently before he became one of everyone’s favorite characters on HBO’s Game of Thrones, the sword-weilding, grungy sass-talking murderer Bronn, actor Jerome Flynn was a pop singer.

In a cover band.

Backed by Simon Cowell.

Apparently in the 90’s Jerome was one half of Robson & Jerome, and they were a pretty popular pop duo who had their own tv show and they did cover songs.  Apparently Cowell, he of the middle-parted flattop and grissley chest hair heard their rendition of Unchained Melody and encouraged them to release it as a single.  Which then topped the charts and even beat out Oasis.

And there you have it.
