TV Guide Magazine has placed Game of Thrones on the cover of this week’s issue. As a part of their Thrones coverage, they’ve published an online article that is part set report and part fun interview with Kit Harington, Peter Dinklage, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. A heads up though, the interview does contain a bit of a spoiler for Jon’s storyline in A Storm of Swords. Here is a spoiler-free snippet:
TV Guide Magazine: What is at your characters’ cores? What makes them tick?
Nikolaj: Jaime shows no fear. He knows that he’s hated by many people, but he’s not going to give them the satisfaction of not being that way. He’s not going to apologize.
Peter: Tyrion’s similar to Jaime: unapologetic. I am what I am. I’m going to make the joke before you get a chance to. I’m going to beat you at your own game.
Kit: Jon’s very strong on standing up for people who he thinks are being mistreated. He’s like his dad. He’s noble.
Speaking of interviews, GQ has just published one with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. No spoilers, but there is one particularly graphic and painful-sounding story from Nikolaj. Read at your own risk… especially if you’re a guy.
Winter Is Coming: Can you believe Thrones has landed on, not one, but two prominent magazine covers this year? We thought the buzz for last season was big, this year it is off the charts.
