Dany and Jorah: Fly Like a Dragon teaser…
"They’re dragons, Khaleesi. They can never be tamed. Not even by their mother." —Ser Jorah Mormont
**So here is Dany, our Khaleesi and Mother of Dragons, deep in thought. What do you think she is thinking about? Or who? She doesn’t seem particularly distressed or compromised emotionally in any way, so perhaps she is contemplating her next move in her quest for the Iron Throne.
**And what about Ser Jorah? Comparitavely, his face does not have the same quiet and contemplative calm of his Khaleesi. What have you done, Jorah? Or what are you doing? Is that a look of determined focus on the task at hand (protecting Dany) or one of preparation, getting ready to face an enemy or threat? Perhaps he is thinking about some other unsettling thing or potentially damaging discussion?
“Khaleesi, My Queen - I swore to serve and obey you, to die for you if need be.” - Ser Jorah Mormont in 3D
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. —Iain Glen
