“Fear the Walking Dead” star Frank Dillane opened up about how strict Stephen Dillane is as a father during an interview on the set of the AMC series.

“I didn’t get to watch much television when I was growing up. Seriously!” Dillane revealed to Metro. “People think ‘Oh it must be great having your dad star in Game of Thrones’ and all that, but people don’t know, man. He was such a strict father.”

“He was strict about school and discipline and stuff and hardly let us watch TV,’ Dillane said of his dad who portrayed Stannis Baratheon on the hit HBO series. “We had to earn the right to play PlayStation or watch television. They would be in fifteen minute slots! Say if we were late home from school that day, we would have our time taken away as punishment.”

Interestingly, even though Dillane is now a grown-up and is free to watch whatever and whenever he likes, the 26-year-old actor isn’t fond of watching his own father’s performances. In fact, Dillane avoided watching his dad on “Game of Thrones.”

“I try not to watch [‘Game of Thrones’] for a few reasons,” Frank told Express.co.uk last year. “My father is such an amazing, beautiful actor. He’s incredible and he helps me a lot. We do a lot of work — we read plays together and he helped me to get into drama school. But I’ve found now if I watch him too much, he ‘steals’ me.”

“I’ve found that I have to slowly distance myself from that teacher-pupil relationship and see him as an equal,” explained the Dillane, who plays Nick Clark on “Fear the Walking Dead.” “Whenever I watch him, I am amazed at how brilliant he is, and it makes me doubt myself. So I have to be careful.”
