When he's not managing brothels, manipulating Starks, or simply impressing 16-year-olds with his BMX skillz, Game of Thrones star Aidan Gillen is doing stunningly beautiful short films, like this sci-fi one, which goes by the name of Ambition.
In the popular HBO show, Aidan plays dastardly Petyr "Littlefinger" Baelish, and in The Wire, he played conflicted politician Tommy Carcetti. Now he's unlocking the many mysteries of planets in this new short flick from Platige Image and the European Space Agency, as he looks back on one of mankind's major missions into space with the Rosetta spacecraft.
Check this out - it's awesome:
Although I find his Game of Thrones accent a little on the dubious side at times, it's needless to say that here, Gillen (who's been espoused by many as the perfect actor to take on the title role in Marvel's upcoming Doctor Strange) more than proves he has the chops to take on the former neurosurgeon and primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats.
I just wish the short flick had been made longer...
Would you have liked to see Ambition as a feature-length movie?
