Versatile actress Sara Dylan has an extraordinary claim to fame when it comes to the four most successful dramas filmed in Belfast in recent years.
For the Belfast actor has been in all of them - The Fall, Bloodlands, Line of Duty and Game of Thrones, whose devoted fans regard her as something of a cult figure.
Sara, who's thought to be the only actor to boast all four series on her CV, was seen by millions of TV viewers a fortnight ago playing the role of a defence solicitor during a tense police interrogation in Jed Mercurio's Line of Duty blockbuster.
But unfortunately Sara didn't get to meet up again with the star of the show, Adrian Dunbar, who directed her in Frank McGuinness's Derry-based play Carthaginians nine years ago.
"Adrian was an absolutely fantastic director. It was an absolute joy to work with him. I learnt so much from him and I was hoping that our paths might have crossed on Line of Duty but it didn't happen," said Sara, who ended up on the series after appearing in Jimmy Nesbitt's Bloodlands on which Mercurio was executive producer.
"He suggested that I might audition for Line of Duty because he said he thought I could do a strong English accent. And, of course, while the show is shot in Belfast it's actually depicting an unspecified city across the water.
"I was thrilled when I was offered the part of the solicitor because I'm a massive fan of the series and everyone wants to be in it. And my friends and family were chuffed to see me too."
In Bloodlands, Sara played the part of a woman who was brutally attacked in a case of mistaken identity and she was seen at the other side of an interview table as a witness.
In The Fall she was cast as a receptionist but her most surreal series was Game of Thrones in which her first involvement was a minor one.
She explained: "I was recruited to take part in the very first table reading of Thrones in the Titanic drawing rooms.
"I read in for actors who couldn't make it to the read-throughs and it was amazing to be in the company of stars like Sean Bean along with the producers and the head of HBO.
"I realised there and then that this was promising to be something huge and I went home and read all the Game of Thrones books by George RR Martin because I wanted to know what was going on."
Later on when season two came around, Sara was offered what was known as a guest star role playing a handmaiden who spied for Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
"I was also asked to be the stand-in on set for one of the biggest stars Emelia Clarke and through that I got to go to Morocco and Croatia to do the same job there too. That was a great learning experience as well."
Happily the handmaiden role kept recurring so Sara continued to be seen in all but season number five of Thrones, acquiring the name Bernadette along the way taking it from one of the producers, Bernie Caulfield.
But it was in season seven that Sara Dylan's Thrones story took its most bizarre twist.
So much so that it even warranted a feature in the American magazine, Vanity Fair, which carried a spoiler alert to readers who weren't up to speed with the TV screenings.
In her earliest seasons Sara had appeared as the handmaiden with her own flowing hair but after she wasn't used in series five, she reckoned her run in Thrones was over so she had it cut short.
"And wouldn't you know it, that's when I got the call from the Thrones team to say that they wanted me for season six.
"They actually got me a wig for those episodes but by the next season, Cersei had had her hair shorn too so they thought it would be great if all of her staff looked like her."
Sara's new look sparked an intense online debate among Thrones fans, some of whom thought she looked familiar but couldn't immediately place her.
Which is when Vanity Fair took up the case, calling Sara the unexpected star who turned heads on Thrones as "the pixie-cut-sporting servant" who was "cool as a cucumber when faced with Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in nothing but his nameday suit luxuriating in Queen Cersei's bed."
In minute detail, the article examined all of Sara's appearances throughout Thrones and referring to the impact of her dramatic new look said: "Never underestimate the ability of a new haircut to make a lasting impression."
Sara has been astonished by the response from Thrones fans. "It's so big and popular around the world that even a small part like mine can get a lot of notice. It's still quite incredible."
Autographed cards from Sara sell well online among Game of Thrones collectors who search out the signatures of every actor who's ever appeared in the globally acclaimed fantasy series.
She has also been invited to attend a number of fans conventions - comic cons - where dedicated followers of Thrones mingle with the stars, pay for their autographs and take part in discussions.
"I went to one in Belfast. But I honestly didn't think anyone would want my autograph. But I'd reckoned without the collectors who wanted the full set," said Sara, whose love of acting was nurtured at the Gwyneth Murdock school of drama in south Belfast.
"She made me feel like I could pursue acting professionally and I went to drama school at Guildford but returned home because so much was happening here."
Last year she had a small part in an independent movie, Stranger with a Camera, directed by Oorlagh George who produced the Oscar-winning short The Shore directed by her father Terry George.
Sara has also been in a locally-made horror movie, Mandrake, and when she's not in front of a camera she's been busy teaching wannabe actors and tutoring them on how to prepare for auditions for drama schools.
During lockdown she's been adjudicating a children's drama festival on Zoom and counting the days until she can get back to another passion, playing live music and enhancing her reputation as a singer-songwriter.
