    Game of Thrones star's childhood home repossessed

    For those "Game of Thrones" fans this might be of interest - https://www.heraldscotland.com/resou...onsive-gallery
    The paper describes it as "Clan chief's castle" so, presumably her father is chief of clan Leslie.

    Don't believe everything the papers say. Just because someone lives in a castle, that doesn't make them a clan chief. In this case, the chief of the Leslies is The Honourable Alexander Leslie, he is not the actress's father.

    No surprise there then. Journalistic licence once again. As you say the days when newspapers were reasonably accurate are long gone.

    In this article her father is called "a chieftain" of Clan Leslie.

    I don't think Paolo Chua has a great understanding of chiefs, chieftains and Aberdeenshire castles but doubtless the family are glad to have a puff of free (?) publicity in case the "chieftain" is hit hard for not paying his taxes.
