"I'm not a star, I'm an actor - there's a difference!"

Jonathan Pryce, CBE (born John Price; 1 June 1947 in Carmel, Wales) is a Welsh actor and singer.

He made his breakthrough screen performance in Terry Gilliam's 1985 cult film Brazil, and since then has become known as a respected and talented performer on both screen and stage. After Brazil, he became a regular of Gilliam's filmography.

Many have noted his resemblance to Jorge Mario Bergoglio / Pope Francis, and his role as the High Sparrow in HBO's Game of Thrones as an austere man of faith who challenges the rigid clergy and pretty much redefines piety has helped the comparison. It came full circle when he played Bergoglio/Francis himself in Netflix's The Two Popes.
