Another interview, another actor excited about the project. This time it’s Harry Lloyd, who in an interview with the Gay Times, mentions his work on the Game of Thrones pilot. If you’d like to read the full article, go here. Here is the part where he talks about Thrones.
Refreshingly down to Earth for a 26-year-old in his position, he refers to himself as ‘a worrier’. Which makes it all the more gratifying to see him talk about his current other project, a pilot for a new HBO fantasy series, Game of Thrones, based on a range of books. He likens it to a less-magical Lord of the Rings (‘big battles, political and quite dark’) and gleefully describes his role as ‘a brilliant fucking character, a really nice nasty part’.
It’s something he returns to throughout our interview, each time becoming so animated that I actually want to put in a call to the television network and demand they commission a full series as it clearly means that much to him.
Winter Is Coming: Such enthusiasm for the project is a great thing to see. We know the cast in Northern Ireland had a blast, and it sounds like the Morocco crew did as well. With this much excitement from Lloyd, I can’t wait to see what he’s done with the role.
