How would Dan Egan fare in Westeros?
With “Veep” airing its final season alongside the final run of HBO
’s other awards darling, “Game of Thrones
,” TheWrap asked Reid Scott
, who plays Egan on “Veep
,” how he thinks Egan would fare in George R.R. Martin
’s fantasy world.
His answer? Egan would feel right at home among the back-stabbing and political gamesmanship of the Seven Kingdoms. “Oh, he’s Littlefinger. Like 100%,” Scott told TheWrap
. “Or, at least he’s like Littlefinger’s protégé, or something like that, or that’s what he would aspire to be. I think he would do great.”

And yes, Scott knows that Littlefinger — aka Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen
) — despite being able to scheme his way almost through seven seasons, met his demise in the Season 7 finale.
