Born in Wythenshawe, a district of Manchester, United Kingdom, this adorable-looking chubby man named, John Bradley West is an English actor, who is best remembered for his role of "Samwell Tarly" (Jon Snow's friend at Castle Black) in the popular HBO fantasy television series, "Game of Thrones".

Even by looking at the pictures, it is quite clear that John Bradley West is not an epitome of fitness when it comes to body images. He is fairly overweight, to say it mildly. Recently, one of the fans shamed this celebrity for his fat body, asking him why he was still a fat man in the show if he was trekking and hiking all over the place without actually eating even a single bite. According to Bradley-West, this just shows that it’s not just women who have to go through the pressures of having the perfect body in the glamor industry. His response has to be the most dignified one; he said, “OK, look. This is a fantasy show. We’ve got giant fire-breathing dragons, we’ve got ice zombies, we’ve got women giving birth to a cloud- why do you think it’s me still being fat that you just don’t buy?”
