House of the Dragon star warns fans after Twitter account ‘hacked’
House of the Dragon star Graham McTavish has revealed his Twitter account has been “hacked”, as he warned fans of potential activity from his profile on the platform.
Just this week, broadcaster Piers Morgan found himself the target of a Twitter hack when a series of offensive tweets were published by his account, which included racial slurs and derogatory comments about the late Queen Elizabeth II.
After appearing to have been locked out of his account, the TalkTV presenter’s profile was quietly restored shortly after, with son Spencer Morgan even poking fun at the debacle.
Graham, who has starred in productions including Outlander, Preacher, The Hobbit trilogy and The Witcher, revealed in a video posted to Instagram that he currently does not have access to his Twitter account.
After wishing his followers a happy time between Christmas and New Year, he said: “The purpose of this, apart from showing you my flashing tree, is just to let you know that my Twitter account has been hacked, which I It’s probably not unusual at all. It’s the first time it’s happened to me.’
The 61-year-old continued: “So that means primarily that I’m not on Twitter at the moment because I’m waiting for them to sort it out, which they’re trying to do. And secondly, god knows what gets posted on my Twitter account by who this happy person is.’
Graham promised he would update fans when he was back on Twitter, and in the meantime wished everyone a “fantastic, fantastic New Year’s celebration wherever you are in the world”.
Fortunately for Graham, the person or persons behind his Twitter hack do not appear to have done any harm.
His last tweet was posted on Boxing Day, in response to someone saying they were doing a movie marathon of The Hobbit trilogy this Christmas, to which he replied: ‘Agreed’.
His latest likes don’t seem to have been tampered with either, having liked tweets in which he was tagged by fans of his various works.
Here’s hoping his Twitter issues are resolved soon.
Graham recently spoke to Metro.co.uk about what fans can expect from season two of House of the Dragon, in which he plays Ser Harrold Westerling.
“I think it will increase in terms of the plot, and I think it will move out of just the places we’ve been in so far,” he explained.
“I think Season 1 was a much more domestic experience, whereas this one will be much more fractured, and possibly move a little more into the world that people are familiar with, with Game Of Thrones, where there were multiple storylines at once. ‘
House of the Dragon is available to watch on Sky and NOW.
