Horrible things happen all our lives; we all experience loss and death and trauma. Usually, most people, I think, we just get on with it. We don't have a whole soliloquy in the middle of something.
I like to read everything, really, especially autobiographies.
I like to wear beautiful clothes, but I don't have that many.
I think what's great is that, when HBO commit, they go in all guns blazing. They attract the very best set designers, the whole thing.
I always feel for the younger cast members in 'Game of Thrones.' They're really clever and smart.
I'm in a monogamous relationship and have been for many, many years. I think it's a choice. I don't think you can generalize, though, and what works for me may not work for other people, but I don't think everybody cheats. We're all different.
Fart jokes still work for me.
I don't necessarily enjoy being at the gym. It's something I have to do, more than something I look forward to doing. But it does enable me to do fun things.
My mum was a librarian, and my dad worked in Greenland.
I actually met a cop who worked with street gangs. I wanted to understand what drives someone who deals with very hardened criminals on a daily basis. How do you turn that off when you go home at night?
I'm a fan of Ed Norton.
What's great about 'Game of Thrones' is they change the perspective, the POV, all the time. So you will have one story told by one character and you'll go, 'Oh my God, horrible', and then maybe the season after you have the same story told but from the person you thought was just the most horrible, vile creature.
I love political dramas. I love good story-telling.
I love team sports.
