God Of War Actor Joseph Gatt Arrested Following Allegations Of "Sexually Explicit Communication With A Minor"

Joseph Gatt was arrested by the LAPD on the morning of 6 April 2022.

It has been revealed that actor Joseph Gatt was recently arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department on the morning of 6 April 2022 following allegations that the 50-year-old was having “sexually explicit communication with a minor across state lines,” as stated by the LAPD.

Gatt is perhaps best known for portraying Thenn Warg in HBO’s Game of Thrones but the actor has also worked extensively in the video game world, most notably providing motion capture for the God of War himself, Kratos, in God of War II, God of War: Chains of Olympus, God of War III, God of War: Ghost of Sparta and God of War: Ascension.

According to a statement released by the LAPD, detectives from the department’s Juvenile Division, Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force carried out a residential warrant search of Gatt’s home and are now appealing for any additional alleged victims to come forward following Gatt’s arrest.

The actor, who lives in Los Angeles, was released on the day of his arrest after posting his $5,000 bail. In a statement posted to Instagram and Twitter, Gatt denied the allegations.

“I obviously want to address the absolutely horrifying and completely untrue allegations recently levelled against me,” Gatt began. “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.”

He continued, “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.” The case remains ongoing.
