attacked by fans, this actor had to limit his Instagram

Certainly, some spectators have a hard time differentiate the actors from the characters they play on screen… After Antony Starr, the interpreter of The Protector of The Boyswho recently made a rant in the face of hateful comments from certain fans, it is Fabien Frankel’s turn to be the victim of attacks. The actor of House of the Dragon even had to limit his Instagram to protect himself!

Are fans finding it more and more difficult to separate fiction from reality?

This is the question we have the right to ask ourselves, as cases of confusion among fans are multiplying… Certain characters in series and films are so disturbing, boring, unhealthy or treacherous, that a feeling of hatred towards them will not take long to arise among the spectators. This form of passion for the audiovisual medium has always existed, but it sometimes takes a form that is as worrying as it is disproportionate. Actors are paying the price more and more regularly, and it is now the turn of Fabien Frankel, the interpreter of the unpopular Ser Criston Cole in House of the Dragon, to be amalgamated with his role. So much so that the unfortunate actor had to protect himself from fan attacks!

Faced with the avalanche of malicious comments he received under his Instagram photos, the British comedian had to limit the possibility of commenting on his postsas DiscussingFilm rightly pointed out on X. Fabien Frankel also confided to our colleagues at Allocine: “I remember, I was in a cinema and someone came up to me to tell me that he hated me!“. Already before him, Game of Thrones had aroused such -negative- passions that Jack Gleeson, a.k.a Joffrey Baratheon, et Iwan Rheon, a.k.a Ramsay Bolton, had been subject to harassment for their roles as villains.

And you, what do you think of the behavior of these fans?
