Watch 'Game of Thrones' Actor John Bradley Edit His Own Wikipedia Page

Because accuracy.

Game of Thrones might take itself very seriously, but thankfully, its cast definitely does not. John Bradley (who you might know as John Bradley West or John Bradley-West—more on that below) stopped by Wiki What? to edit his own poor little stub of a Wikipedia page, and the result was hilarious.

First, he had to correct his name, which was listed incorrectly as "John Bradley-West." As it turns out, his birth name is "John Bradley West" and professionally he goes simply as "John Bradley."

So where did the mysterious hyphen come from? In drama school, he felt guilty about dropping the "West" from his name and toyed with creating the fake hyphenate before ultimately deciding to stick with John Bradley as his professional name. Somehow the experiment stuck and made it all the way to his Wiki. The more you know, right?

During the segment, Bradley also revealed that the Spice Girls are to thank for his acting career.

"Genuinely I said to myself when I was about 8 years old, 'I have to get famous in order to meet Geri Halliwell,'" he explained. Time to tweet your thank you's to Ginger Spice, Sam fans.
