You don't expect to bump in to one of the stars of the biggest television series in the world in your local Asda, but that's exactly what Traycie Dargon did when she spotted non-other-than Game of Thrones' lovable Samwell Tarly actor John Bradley-West.
Teacher Traycie was in the Trafford Park supermarket this afternoon when she spotted the superstar.
He was posing for pictures with everyone, I didn't have a clue who he was. The guy on the till told me, Gary, he's a massive fan of Game of Thrones and was star struck by him.
He posed happily with quite a few people for pictures.
I don't watch it myself, but took the pictures anyway. He had he's picture taken with numerous Asda staff as well.
John grew up in Wythenshawe and is currently starring in the 7th season of Game of Thrones which is made by HBO.
