"I take this opportunity to be thankful for Iain Glen. Mormont is the advisor; the man that has made mistakes and has seemingly learned from most of them; the man who at first was maybe just trying to get home but was a changed man after being caught by the beauty of Dany and witnessing the birth of dragons. I am team Jorah. I am thankful for Jorah." —Oz of Thrones, WIC.net

Iain Glen’s Game of Thrones Interview in the Big Issue:
On the much anticipated season four and its whimsical glory…
We’ve just completed filming and the focus has moved on for us. The scripts for season five have been written and that’s what we’ll be thinking about now. All I’ll say is that is that there are surprises up ahead. We’ve been doing some very different scenes in season four. We might even be entering pastures new. It’s going to be fantastic and I’d say it’ll be the biggest and the 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.
On working opposite Emilia Clarke…
It’s a treat. She’s a lovely girl and we got on well from the word go. It’s her first big, proper gig really, and we’ve become very good friends. Our storyline follows a nomadic tribe that travels from place to place, so we are always on the move. The majority of the storyline is filmed in cold, wet Northern Ireland and then we turn up to shoot in Malta, Croatia and Morocco.
