“I think the difference is that my first language isn’t English, so I pick things up from the people I’m around. I lived in London for some years, and I spoke slightly different then. But, I’ve also studied a lot. When I moved to London, I stayed with my sister and we had a rule. I didn’t allow her to speak Danish to me because I wanted to perfect English. And, I would repeat everything that I saw on the television.”

Thoughts about Jaime over time

While reading the ASOIAF books (SPOILERS BELOW):

  • First book - Hmm, he’s supposed to be good-looki-WHAAT? YOU PUSHED BRAN. I HATE YOU. AND YOU’RE WITH YOUR SISTER. YOU ATTACKED NED I HATE YOU I HATE YOU.
  • Second book - ANNOYING KINGSLAYER WHY ARE YOU STILL ALIVE
  • Third book - I still hate you. Wait. What’s happening? No. I don’t want to like you. You’re despicable. No. OH NO OH NO. Poor Jaime. You’ve been through so much.
  • Fourth - Cersei doesn’t deserve you. Open your eyes you. I ship you and Brienne so hard.
  • Fifth - Yay! Finally you ignore Cersei! Yes! I hope this Brienne-Jaime thing ends up well.

While watching the TV show:

Perfect casting.

You meet someone, you see someone and you kind of, by how they look and where they’re from, jump to conclusions about who they are. I think it’s something you do because it’s basic instinct, it’s survival, it’s how we navigate through life. But, you just have to remind yourself to believe that your preconceived opinion is definitely rarely the truth.
