Richard Madden's Cowboy Photoshoot for Interview Magazine











Elton John interviews him for the magazine. Full interview @ source.

On his shyness


JOHN: I was so shy as a child, and I am shy still. Getting onstage and doing what I did was an escape from having to be shy.

MADDEN: Nothing is more terrifying to me than standing up in front of a room of ten people. I was presenting at an awards ceremony the other week, physically shaking onstage, so much that I was sweating. But I can get naked onstage in front of 2,000 people as another character and it’s not an issue.

JOHN: If you’re young and in show business, most people think you’re either a poof or you’re a show-off. How did you cope with that?

MADDEN: Not very well. I was absolutely destroyed at school. I kind of retreated with my one or two close friends. I managed to take over the school radio because that was the only room in the building that was soundproof that we young ones had a key to, so we could be in our own little world. We never had a drama department.

On moving to LA


JOHN: Does America hold an attraction for you to come here and live?

MADDEN: I’ve been rather disinterested in living in L.A. for most of my career, but I’ve recently spent a lot more time here. It suits me more, it’s a much more proactive place. I can be lazier in London than I can be in L.A.

On his character in Game of Thrones:


MADDEN: “King of the North! King of the North!” I still get that a lot, but it’s in a beautiful way. I’ve been lucky that the characters I’ve played are ones that audiences have liked. There are actors on that show who people walk past on the street and yell, ‘Bitch!’ People have a fondness for my character. I died too young.”
