We have yet another interview with Harry Lloyd, this one from Wonderland magazine. In the interview, Lloyd talks Game of Thrones and it’s chances at aseries pick up.
…in March the execs at the American HBO company will decide whether or not to give the green light to Game of Thrones, which is based on George R. R. Martin’s mythical A Song of Ice and Fire novel series – something Harry Lloyd is quietly confident will happen. “It’s not a case of people throwing money into some kind of blockbuster with a rubbish script – it’s really gritty and character-driven and complicated with struggle for power in this kind of Middle Earth land with less magic and more backstabbing. It’s a size of film set I hadn’t been on, and it’s great there are people who can afford to tell this story on the scale that it deserves. And as it’s made by HBO, the people making it have a lot more control because it is a cable channel and not a huge corporation.”
Winter Is Coming: Lloyd’s publicist has been working overtime these past couple months. Lloyd really has done a great job talking up the series and it’s great to hear his thoughts on the reason he finds the story so compelling.
