It was just a matter of time before the folks at Bad Lip Reading got their hands, or mouths, onto the epic series that is Game of Thrones. They’ve gone the extra mile and added some humorous visuals as well.
Actor Jack Gleeson, who plays the super twistedly evil and bratty King Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones, may have you scratching your head, wondering if this is really the same guy who plays such a horrifying character. And rare is the times when he is open to an interview to answer questions about the show, his character, and himself.
So, check out the video and watch the delightful Jack Gleeson NOT be Joffrey during.
Game of Thrones star Jack Gleeson joined UCD’s Q-Soc for an exhaustive interview / Q+A covering his career as a child in Batman Begins to life on the set of Game of Thrones, playing the villainous King Joffrey Baratheon and writing and performing with own theatre group, Collapsing Horse Theatre Company.
I can’t say I’m all that familiar with many British actors aside from the ones that made their way to Hollywood (Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Christian Bale), so it was a bit of an interesting surprise to know that Gemma Whelan, the actress who plays Yara Greyjoy on Game of Thrones, is a comedian as well. What’s even more surprisingly interesting is what she had to do during her audition for her Game of Thrones role.
She explains it all in the video interview (linked in the image below), around the 3:55 mark. Remember that part when she gives her brother Theon (Alfie Allen) a ride to the castle upon his arrival? Yeah, it has something to do with that.
Check out these delightful photos of the actors from the Game of Thrones panel. They look so happy here. It’s good to know they still remember how to do that.
In attendance for the panel were the show creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, author George R.R. Martin, and actors Richard Madden (Robb Stark), Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Rose Leslie (Ygritte), John Bradley (Samwell Tarley), and the abfab Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister).
We all know the Iron Throne that is shown in the HBO series Game of Thrones is quite impressive, but apparently, George imagined something a bit more… dynamic:
“The HBO throne has become iconic. And well it might. It’s a terrific design, and it has served the show very well. (…) And yet, and yet… it’s still not right. [My] Iron Throne is massive. Ugly. Assymetric. It’s a throne made by blacksmiths hammering together half-melted, broken, twisted swords, wrenched from the hands of dead men or yielded up by defeated foes… a symbol of conquest… it has the steps I describe, and the height. From on top, the king dominates the throne room. And there are thousands of swords in it, not just a few. This Iron Throne is scary. And not at all a comfortable seat, just as Aegon intended.
I have to admit, I really like George’s illustration, but I can see how that probably wouldn’t work in the small screen, but something like that would definitely look pretty awesome on the big screen. But either way, I still think that throne is probably not the most comfortable seat in the world.
