mine: aidan gillen


I went to [showrunners] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] after I got the script and said, “I’d like to film Aidan’s face for the first minute of the scene and never cut.” That scene was about two people who were really, really lying, and you cannot tell because they are so good at it. The only direction I really had to give to Aidan was, “I’m going to start the scene on your face six inches from your nose.” That’s where the tension is. He looks like he’s thinking, “How do I get out of this one?”
