Video Interview with Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden and Kit Harington

They were interviewed during the promotional trip in Brazil. Madden mentioned that Robb Stark is much younger in the book. Well then, maybe in the show they should stop making other characters call Robb Stark “a boy”, since as played by Madden, he’s obviously NOT a boy. And it’s especially weird to hear Cersei call him a boy, since Lena Headey looks like she’s only a few years older than Richard Madden.

Or rather, the actors playing them (Richard Madden, Kit Harrington and Alfie Allen). Allen looks so different from Theon on the show, but Madden and Harrington pretty much look like Robb and Jon, minus the funny clothes. Allen claims he would have liked to play Arya (nope, sorry dude, not plucky enough!), Madden and Harrington said they share some similarities with their on-screen characters (easy to say, when you’re playing basically decent and noble┬ácharacters, heh).


Game of Thrones Season 2 Countdown

New trailer. Looks like Renly has ditched the Knight of Flowers for a woman.

Character featurettes. Robb Stark, the King in the North. Hmm, doesn’t look like Robb is fighting for the Iron Throne, he just wants whoever is sitting on the throne to relinquish power over the North. Mother-son conflict coming up. Dude, seriously? You’re not going to go rescue your sisters?!

Jon Snow. I’m kinda meh on this character, and the whole Night’s Watch thing.

Daenerys Targaryen. So the magic dragon babies can’t help her yet, since they’re still small, heh.

Joffrey Baratheon . Hey, what do you know, another mother-son conflict.
