Do we know what part Jason plays? If not we certainly will ask him!

Nikolaj aka Jaime Lannister had to bow out of this film due to his GoT commitment. I have a feeling they got Jason as his replacement. Pure speculation on my part :cherub

The Hotel actually is the Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai.

My daughter and her family stayed at this hotel last summer. I remember she told me that the hotel was old but her wing was brand new after the bombing in 2008.
Even now they are still searching every car for bombs using mirror inserted underneath the cars.

Jason said in the Mayo segment that he plays a wealthy Russian hotel guest who was in the dining room when the attack started.
I hope it is a heroic character :brows

There was a 4-part BBC documentary series about this hotel in May 2015. It was fascinating - it's the poshest hotel in India, and there is great competition to work there. If you get in, the pay is very good by Indian standards, and you have a job for life if you perform well. The standards are very high - I remember one of the managers inspecting everything very carefully. Rich Indians hire the Taj Mahal for luxurious weddings.
