Iain Glen Interview

Iain Glen Interview: "The New Game of Thrones Will be the Biggest and Best Yet"

On the temptation – or perhaps lack of – to delve into the A Song of Ice and Fire series…. I haven’t read ahead at all and so I don’t know exactly what lies in store for my character. When I was asked to do this there was a commitment to a few years and, while you want to get as much of a feel for the character as possible, it’s important that this functions as a screenplay. I quite like the surprise of not knowing where it is going. I read the first book but then I got the impression that the writers wanted the actors to come into it as fresh as possible from the screenplay and not questioning them on why this or that wasn’t in from the books. Of course there are others who have read the books and could let you know bits and pieces, plus I’m very close to Dan and David [Weiss and Benioff, Game of Thrones writers], and they give you hints.
