Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen) talks about his role in GoT Season 2

- You are also set to appear in the second season of Game of Thrones so how did that role come around? And how did you find working on such an epic project?

Well I just auditioned for it; I have a really great agent here in London. It was a totally different type of production but it was good fun because you had two hundred extras on horses every day on location it is a huge enterprise.

It was so different compared to a project like Resistance, which was quite intimate. Both projects were really fun to do.

- Can you give us any hints as to what we can epic from season 2 and what your role is going to entail?
Spoilery, highlight to read
My role a magical assassin called Jaqen H'ghar and he mainly interacts with Arya, the little stark girl, and he is a teacher.

What I liked about that character is that at the beginning he appears as one of the bad guys because he is introduced as an assassin but he turns out to be more her teacher and helps her to kill off her enemies.

And I got to shape-shift which was great - it was my first shape-shift on screen (laughs).


Can't wait!
