Richard Madden Acceptance Speech at 2019 Golden Globes

Richard Madden Gave His Parents a Shout-Out at the Golden Globes, and It'll Make You Swoon

Getting bruised, bloodied, and battered in Bodyguard has officially paid off for Richard Madden. After the 32-year-old Scottish actor got tongues wagging with his suave red carpet appearance at the Golden Globes, he hit the stage to accept the award for best actor in a TV drama on Sunday night.

"Thank you very much to the HFPA, I didn't see this coming at all," he began, before thanking his parents (who he noted flew all the way from Scotland for the big night), saying, "I wouldn't be here without you." So sweet!

Madden, who previously starred on Game of Thrones, made a splash in Netflix's UK-set thriller, which went from a sleeper hit to a serious awards contender over the past few months. In it, Madden plays a veteran with PTSD who's assigned to protect a controversial politician who has received negative attention for her controversial policies. Fortunately the high-stakes thriller will return for a second season (hopefully) soon!
