“The characters I tend to play are a little more interesting than the standard heroes. Romantic leads can be a little more straightforward, I guess. But it just seems to be the parts I get, I don’t know what that says about me. I enjoy interesting characters and interesting people, I suppose.”
Apparently you auditioned for Jon Snow but got a completely different Snow instead. What do you think the producers saw in you to carry such a disturbing character? I’m not entirely sure. People often ask me this and I simply don’t have an answer to it. I’ve never played a role like this before and I approached it like any other role I would have. By finding the truth of the person you’re trying to portray and trying to deliver good acting. But more often, to avoid tripping over my sword!
