Westeros

Iwan Rheon Talks Game of Thrones

Recommended Posts

<p>New cast member Iwan Rheon, whose <a href="http://www.westeros.org/GoT/News/Entry/HBO_Confirms_Iwan_Rheon_Casting/">casting confirmation</a> we reported on awhile back, and whose role (&ldquo;BOY&rdquo;) has been the subject of a lot of well-founded speculation, was interviewed by the always-excellent <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/RedCarpetNewsTV?feature=watch">Red Carpet News</a> regarding his experience filming on the show and just who he worked with.</p>

<p>(Watch the interviewer rather cheekily taking a stab at Rheon&rsquo;s character&rsquo;s identity with his opening question):</p>

Hah, cheeky interviewer indeed. If I were Iwan I'd have replied

"Who's Ramsay?"

all mystified.

Or if he was really clever

"It rhymes with what now?"

or

"Not Snow! Never Snow!" since that would work as a confirmation and denial at the same time

I guess it's obvious why he's being called 'boy' and his name is being kept secret.

If people realise the evil son of a bitch terrorising Theon is the son of Roose Bolton, they're going to be very suspicious of him! Which will make the Red Wedding a lot more predictable.

But yeah, that was a pretty funny reaction from Iwan. :P

Aww, he's adorable! He's like Jack Gleeson who plays Joffrey. The writers spoke at my university and said he was the sweetest kid they'd ever met. Until the camera started rolling.

Rheon's got good crazy eyes. I hope he can bring the animalistic quality.

If he is who everyone thinks he is, perfect casting choice.

Between the Reeds and him, this show is proving time and again that they have the best possible casting director.
