Game of Thrones’ gorgeous “King of Thrones” hits the January 2015 cover of British GQ, and what a thing of beauty it is:
But is young Kit still stuck in his teenaged head? From the few excerpts in the magazine’s preview, the 27-year-old sounds like he’s had Moz and Robert Smith on heavy rotation.
The curse of Game of Thrones…
“Game Of Thrones is my life, it’s my day job, I love it. But honestly, if there is a curse of Thrones, it’s a lifetime of having to talk about it.”
And quickly finding acting work and success:
“It would be foolish to say I wish I’d gone through a period of longing. Because any actors going through a period of longing themselves would tear my f***ing face off.”
Feelings about his own films…
“I won’t name names and I won’t name films but I’ve sat through private screenings, nearly in tears. Hating it. Thinking: this is the end, everything’s over.”
But, at least he’s somewhat self-aware; on actors:
“They’re all narcissists. Every single one, I promise you. To have that verve, to get up and want to be watched. It comes from a place - either you were denied that attention as a child, or you were given lots of it and want more. Which is where I land.”
Ah, so you *do* know something, Jon Snow. Here’s hoping Martin let’s you keep your pretty, pretty head.
