Jerome Flynn (born 16 March 1963) is an English actor. He is best known for his role as Paddy Garvey in five seasons of the popular drama series Soldier, Soldier. While filming this series he and co-star Robson Green filmed a scene where they had to sing the song Unchained Melody. Impressed, record producer Simon Cowell convinced them to release the song commercially. They went on to enjoy a period of musical success as Robson and Jerome between 1995 and 1999. Following this Flynn went to play in musicals and on stage.
Flynn auditioned for the part while he had a black eye, left over from when he knocked himself in his brother's kitchen the day before. He insists that this gave him a rough look which got him the part. Flynn auditioned for Bronn while affecting a Scottish accent, but the producers decided that he should speak with a jaunty Northern English accent.
