“Even though it’s a fantasy world and fictional, it’s not that far from the truth in some ways. There are a lot of people out there who are really suffering. Young people, kids, suffering terrible fates. It does affect you. I’m sitting here in this wonderful film set, extremely lucky. And not that far away there are people suffering hugely.”
make me choose: anonomyous asked you: thomas brodie sangster or isaac hempstead wright?
It wasn’t like I ever said, ‘I want to be an actor’. I was in the right place at the right time. I went to a local drama group because I found football on the weekends too cold - which is highly ironic because I’ve had some of the coldest experiences of my life filming 'Game of Thrones’. So I went to this group, enjoyed the drama games and the make-belief stuff, but I wasn’t really a hard-core thespian. Then there was open casting and it so happened I got the role. It was the coolest: three weeks Northern Ireland, playing on this medieval adventure playground, getting thrown out of windows. Picking up beheaded heads. It was the coolest.
