A new update over at the Making Game of Thrones site, this one from a new name, Steve Marzolf. Steve Marzolf is a journalist/editor that works for HBO and produces interviews and other editorials for their website. It sounds like he may have interviewed some of the cast members recently, as this post is a quote from Peter Dinklage about his character Tyrion’s relationship with his sister, Cersei Lannister.
Nothing says “occupational hazard” like the piercing eyes of Cersei Lannister – and it didn’t take long for Peter Dinklage to realize just what a handful the queen could be. “Tyrion’s relationship with Cersei is…oh God, it’s really difficult,” he says. “They’re constantly battling one another. Unlike my relationship with Lena Headey, the actress playing the role – I’m really good friends with Lena, and we’re very upset that we don’t have more scenes together this first season. But it’s really tempestuous because both of them see through each other’s veneer and pretensions and all of that. Tyrion and Cersei are both fraught with those. So I think people who see each other for who they really are have a hard time being around each other in pleasant company…”
Winter Is Coming: This is the first time we’ve heard Dinklage talk about the project at all. Really cool to hear his thoughts on his character, especially in his relationship with Cersei. Hope we get more of this interview in the future!
