“We all know the feeling of meeting someone and then being surprised and almost ashamed because we find out this person was nothing like what we’d expected. People can relate to that in Jaime.” (Nikolaj Coster Waldau)
“I didn’t know much about fantasy. I only had those pre-conceived opinions that are never very good. Everything is black-and-white and you have heroes and bad guys. Whereas here […] they’re all human and very selfish, as we all are.”
“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.”
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.
