Like every "Game of Thrones" fan, Charles Dance was gobsmacked by last season's next-to-last installment.The fact that Dance was caught off-guard is notable, since he's a star of the show.Lady Olenna is played by Diana Rigg.On-screen soon-to-be in-laws, Rigg and Dance have known and worked together for decades, including a 1997 British TV adaptation of "Rebecca". Rigg says she hasn't read the "Game of Thrones" books either.Now 75, Rigg has had a rich and varied career in theater, both in her native Britain and as a Tony Award winner on Broadway, as well as films including the James Bond caper "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" and even an NBC sitcom.Tall and imperial, Dance, 67, grew up working-class in England and overcame a teenage stammer to devote himself to theater. His breakout project was the 1984 British TV hit "The Jewel in the Crown," which he followed with such films as "Michael Collins" and "Gosford Park" and the British miniseries "Bleak House," as well as lots of theater.Rigg and Dance are cracking up at their shared memories of starting out so long ago.
