“I knew from Day 1. When I got the part, I read the first book. And before that, I Googled the character summaries,” he said. “There will be a delight that the person tormenting their favorite characters is gone, but I would like to think there’s a certain sadness at the loss of the delight people take in hating a character like Joffrey.”

“I’ve been acting since age 8. I just stopped enjoying it as much as I used to,” he told EW. “And now there’s the prospect of doing it for a living, whereas up until now it was always something I did for recreation with my friends, or in the summer for some fun.
