“Game of Thrones” alum Joseph Gatt was arrested earlier this month after allegedly in engaging in “online sexually explicit communication with a minor across state lines.”
The Los Angeles Police Department served a search warrant at Gatt’s LA home on April 6 and subsequently arrested the 50-year-old “Banshee” actor, per an LAPD press release.
Gatt, 50, was taken into custody and booked an outstanding felony warrant for contact with a minor for sexual offense.
LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, who are investigating the case, said it was an “ongoing investigation” and encouraged anyone with additional information to contact police.
The “Thor” actor was released on $5,000 bail, TMZ reports.
Gatt denied the accusations in a Twitter post on Wednesday, writing, “I obviously want to address the absolutely horrifying and complete untrue allegations recently leveled against me.”

He continued, “They are 100% categorically wrong and reckless. I have confirmed errors and misleading information in today’s press release. I am fully cooperating with police and LAPD to get to the bottom of this. I look forward to clearing my good name.”
“Thank you to all of my friends and supporters who know that this is untrue and understand for legal reasons I cannot comment further on social media,” he added.
The actor, who famously portrayed Thenn Warg on the HBO series “Game of Thrones,” most recently appeared in the supernatural horror thriller “Titanic 666,” which dropped on Tubi earlier this month.
Reps for Gatt did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
