Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke are just two of the Game of Thrones stars highlighted in Time magazine’s profile of the hit HBO show!
Also featured are Sophie Turner, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Maisie Williams, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Here’s what the cast shared…
Kit, on playing his character Jon Snow: “I made mistakes and felt that he wasn’t interesting enough. That sounds weird, but I’ve never been quite content with him. Maybe that’s what makes him him. That angst.”
Emilia, on filming scenes in the buff as her character Daenerys: “I don’t have any qualms saying to anyone it was not the most enjoyable experience. How could it be? I don’t know how many actresses enjoy doing that part of it.”
Sophie, on the rape of her character Sansa Stark: “This was the trending topic on Twitter, and it makes you wonder, when it happens in real life, why isn’t it a trending topic every time. This was a fictional character and I got to walk away from it unscathed … Let’s take that discussion and that dialogue and use it to help people who are going through that in their everyday lives. Stop making it such a taboo, and make it a discussion.”
