Lee Pace Reacts to Being Called 'Intergalactic Emperor Daddy' for New Role on 'Foundation'

Lee Pace is sharing his thoughts on people calling him an “Intergalactic Emperor Daddy” thanks to his new role on the Apple TV+ series Foundation.

The 42-year-old actor made an appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this week, during which he talked about the new series.

Lee said he plays “the emperor of the galaxy, which is an absurd idea. It takes place in the distant, distant future where mankind has moved off this planet and has spread out through the entire Milky Way galaxy and my emperor has cheated death and has held control over this vast territory by cloning himself. So at any given time, there’s me, the sitting emperor, the emperor in training, and then there’s the retired emperor.”

When James brought up how fans are calling him the “Intergalactic Emperor Daddy,” Lee said, “I can get used to that! I don’t know what the means, actually. What is an emperor galactic daddy?”

In an interview with Esquire, Lee reacted to the phrase and said, ā€œIā€™m deeply flattered. My mother would be so proud.ā€

There is some very good news for fans of the show!
