We know Conleth Hill as Game of Thrones‘ Master of Whispers Varys. He recently sat down with Vulture for an interview about his latest project, in which he plays-what else?–a spy master on the long running ITV show Foyle’s War. As always, it doesn’t really matter what projects actors from Game of Thrones are trying to push, the questions always invariably turn to HBO’s monster hit.
Hill was very good natured about it, pointing out that, as Varys’s look is so singular, he himself has the advantage of going unrecognized in public most of the time. As he puts it: “I would be a bit worried if I were recognized as Varys, because I don’t look like that normally. If I’m at a red carpet event, they’ll recognize some of the other stars from Game of Thrones, but not me. I’m not recognized immediately. Normally, if I’m wearing a tuxedo, people think I’m a security person or a wine waiter, just because of the uniform, you know?”
With the new season weeks away, Vulture natural asked if Hill could slip us any details. How evasive was he? See below!
