The Observer has a piece entitled The Hot List 2010 and Harry Lloyd made the list. In the short blurb about Lloyd they mention Game of Thrones.
Lloyd, meanwhile, is used to playing around with the dark side. His most talked-about part to date has been a scene-stealing role as a Doctor Who villain (in The Family of Blood episode), and he has just recorded a pilot for HBO’s Game of Thrones, a major ensemble piece crammed with British luminaries which Lloyd describes with relish as a “dark, political intrigue set in a fantasy world… with incest”
Winter Is Coming: Again, you gotta love the way Lloyd continues to talk about Thrones. Not only is it great to hear he is passionate about the project, but the fact he keeps mentioning it means he must feel confident in it getting picked up.
