With series 3 only a week away, some of the stars of the hit Sky Atlantic fantasy drama, Game Of Thrones have been teasing what delights we have in store for us.
Series 2 of Game Of Thrones ended in a dramatic explosion which saw Joffrey set Sansa aside in favour of marrying Margaery Tyrell, Theon betrayed by his own men, and Qhorin Halfhand forcing Jon to kill him to prove his loyalty to the Wildlings, so it is with much-anticipation fans eagerly await next week’s series premier, and according to two of its stars, Jack Gleeson and Peter Dinklage, it won’t be a disappointment!
According to Jack Gleeson his character, Joffrey, will be “as evil as he ever was” explaining to Entertainment Weekly:
“I think he’s as evil as he ever was but he’s channeling it through a different means,
“There’s a different dynamic – he’s trying to impress Margaery with his evil deeds and he’s still rebelling against his mother.”
The actor then went on to explain that Joffrey’s bad luck in the romance department isn’t over yet following his disastrous relationship with Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) , teasing:
“There are some disaster dates [with Margaery], I think he’s a bit unlucky in love.”
Meanwhile, Gleeson’s co-star, Peter Dinklage has revealed that his character, Tyrion, will find himself still battling with his manipulative Lannister family this season, after fans saw him displaced as Hand of the King by Tywin at the end of the last series, despite saving the kingdom from invaders.
Speaking to Access Hollywood, the actor explained:
“He’s very wily, Tyrion. So, he’ll figure it out,” he said. “He’ll figure out a way to get more comfortable bedding!”
“That’s a very complicated relationship – Tywin and Tyrion – but they do sort of match each other well. I give [it] to him just as much. We get some big give and take.”
The actor went on to hint at a new alliance with his sister, Cersei (Lena Headey), teasing:
“They’re both put in situations that they don’t want to be, so they find a common ground in terms of, you know, being put in the hole by their dad,” he said.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO in the US on March 31 and to Sky Atlantic in the UK on April 1.
