Joe Dempsie, who plays Gendry, was interviewed recently by 1883 Magazine. He talks about his acting career, what he thinks of LA and, of course, Game of Thrones. In one answer, he manages to drop a hint about season three.
So you looking forward to season 3?
Yes back filming in July. They keep the storylines very closely guarded, so I’ve no idea what’s in store. But the encouraging thing for me is that the producer said to me towards the end of season 2 that although my character isn’t in third book too much, they’re quite open to writing some new storylines for my character, so hopefully I’ll be doing some interesting stuff.
Winter Is Coming: So it sounds like filming on season three will get underway in July, as expected. Interesting to hear about the potential for new storylines for Gendry. While I’m not opposed to new storylines in general, I worry that the writers may end up stretching the story too thin. This was one of my complaints for season two. There is so much in A Storm of Swords to tackle as it is, I hope that David & Dan make sure that any invented storylines don’t detract at all from the impact of those events.
