By now we’ve heard from Peter Dinklage and Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington so many times that we can probably answer the questions better than they can. It is refreshing to hear from some different cast members, so I think these pair of interviews are worth highlighting, one with Jack Gleeson and one with Iain Glen.
Entertainment Weekly had a chance to catch up with Jack Gleeson on the set of Thrones and talk to him about playing one of the most hated characters on TV.
“With his coronation, his malicious deeds amplify tenfold,” Gleeson promises. “He thinks everyone should say yes to him ’cause he has the right to be where he is, so he doesn’t take no for an answer. There are scenes where I just do malicious things for no reason.”
While Westeros.org had the opportunity to interview Iain Glen during the recent Thrones press junket in London.
Q: Did you have any big scenes with the CGI dragons this series?
“There are. They feature, they’re ever-present. So they don’t overpower the story, the writers have been very choice about when they’re featured. Sometimes you’ll see them being put in their cage at the top of a scene so that you can continue on clean of them. Because it takes a lot of work to set up the CGI within the scenes and stuff. Again, the series is very good at whether it’s the wolves or the dragons, they do them very, very well.”
Winter Is Coming: Good to hear from these two! Both are giving great performances, and yet both are a bit unheralded by the majority of the media.
