Nikolaj took a break from filming, The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann to talk to AccessHollywood.com about season three Game of Thrones. Although he wasn’t there for it, Nikolaj shared his thoughts on the now infamous, “Red Wedding.” Take a look below:
Were you around when they filmed The Red Wedding?
No, but I spoke to the guys when they shot it, and apparently it was quite an emotional thing because, you know, two of our original cast members kind of left the series in a very, very brutal way. David Nutter, who’s the director of [it], he’s absolutely brilliant, but they did say it was very, a very strange feeling on set.
Were you and Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne, filming afterwards and had to deal with a sad crew?
We were shooting after and before. It’s been a weird season for us ‘cause we have kind of been on our own little journey. … On a personal level, you bond, you become friends with crew members and the other cast, so that’s always sad to [see people] leave, but that’s kind of what this business is.
I know. ‘The Lannisters send their regards.’ … It’s unfair, right? He’s such a young man and he’s been thrown into this as being the King In the North and all that. It’s interesting to see these young kings. Joffrey is very different individual. There’s no question he’s a little monster, he’s a little psychopath, but, you look at them and if you look [at them] like young pop stars, or if you become very powerful … a lot of people look up to you for guidance. When you’re just a teenager, it’s not easy. It’s kind of a recipe for disaster. Now what was the horrible thing Robb did? He didn’t do anything really horrible. He fell in love with a woman.
