Game of Thrones - Richard Madden Interview

Richard Madden aka Robb Stark talks "Game of Thrones"

"Game of Thrones" is a huge success - what is it like to be a part of this epic saga?

I have come of age as an actor during that time, mirroring my character, Robb, who develops into an assured, charismatic leader as the story unfolds. I went from being a young actor getting a great part in a big show, which I didn't expect, with more and more pressure being put on me as an actor, which I've really enjoyed and hopefully I've handled well and acquitted myself well. And that, in a way, is a similar journey to Robb's – he is a young man who has to step up and become a King, a leader. In Season 2, I was coming into my own as an actor just as Robb is coming to his own as a leader so there have been all of these parallels.

Were there scenes that you particularly enjoyed doing during Season Three?

Yes, there were. There's a wonderful scene that I had with Tobias Menzies, who plays Robb's uncle, Edmure Tully, which was so well written and wonderful to do. And one of the things that I love about Game of Thrones is that when I watch it as a viewer it has the power to pull you in to all the different stories that are going on and a way of making you involved with different characters. When Robb's on I'm on his side, obviously, but when Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) is on I'm on his side or when Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is on I'm on her side. It's incredible the way it can do that. Every character is like that – so brilliantly drawn and rounded and you are involved in each and every one of their stories. And obviously the most memorable sequence in Season Three was filming episode nine. Anyone who has read the book will know exactly what I'm referring to. It's called The Red Wedding and I don't really want to give anything away for those people who haven't read it. But it was kind of operatic and incredible to film.
