Behind the scenes of our April issue cover shoot, we ask the actors who populate Westeros which characters they’d give up their roles for. We have a hard time imaging Kit Harington as Joffrey, but who are we kidding—we’d watch that show, too.
Emilia will be guest at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, March 19 together with Greg Kinnear, only on NBC!
The men and women of Westeros don’t often find themselves in situations the rest of us can relate to, but at the same time, the advice that the stars of Game of Thrones would give their own characters rings surprisingly true.
Added in the gallery, a couple of new Dom Hemingway production stills. The movie is going to be in theaters from April 2, 2014.
Some stars of the hit HBO series have understandable soft spots for their own characters, while others have deeply nuanced understandings of the politics of Westeros—but all of them have strong opinions on who the true heir to the Iron Throne should be.
Vanity Fair contributing editor Jim Windolf talks to George R. R. Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the ongoing book series on which the popular HBO show Game of Thrones is based, who tells Windolf that the show is indeed catching up to the books: “They are. Yes. It’s alarming.”
In the April issue of Vanity Fair, on stands March 13, show co-creator David Benioff tells Windolf, “Last year we went out to Santa Fe for a week to sit down with him [Martin] and just talk through where things are going, because we don’t know if we are going to catch up and where exactly that would be. If you know the ending, then you can lay the groundwork for it. And so we want to know how everything ends. We want to be able to set things up. So we just sat down with him and literally went through every character.” Martin tells Windolf, “I can give them the broad strokes of what I intend to write, but the details aren’t there yet. I’m hopeful that I can not let them catch up with me.”
Windolf reports that the presence of so many child actors in the cast, including the terrific Maisie Williams as Arya Stark, increases the time pressure. “This is a serious concern,” Martin tells Windolf. “Maisie was the same age as Arya when it started, but now Maisie is a young woman and Arya is still 11. Time is passing very slowly in the books and very fast in real life.”
