I don’t necessarily mean that I was sad, but it’s an emotional moment for the character so I felt what he was feeling. For the real last day at work Dan and David weren’t there but [co-executive producer] Bryan Cogman called people in and said a few words and my son was there with me. That was quite something. And I got my mockingbird pin. I had already let them know I wanted it, and I cleverly worked it so I got two. There’s one from my cloak and one from my tunic. So I got the large and the small size — one for me and one for my son.
You can tell somebody you love them, and it can mean 50 different
things. I’ve always tried to be a bit nonspecific about that. He
definitely has feelings for her, and strong protective feelings, as well.
I think (feelings and politics were) inter-meshed. And there was a
degree of obsession to it.
