For Season Eight, we picked four fan favorite characters to hang out on the beach and discuss the long-awaited conclusion to the HBO series. https://t.co/J5aEKghbDU— Esquire (@esquire) May 7, 2019
Pod: "It's the innocence, it's the honesty and the sweetness in a world where there isn't a lot of that,” Portman tells me. “There's a lot of Machiavellian tactics and underhandedness, and to have a guy who is none of those things and is just as honest to the core and selfless and loyal—people like when they see something good happening to him, you know?”
Samwell: Just in general storytelling terms, Bradley is pivotal. Every character can’t be Jon Snow, he notes. “You need a character like Sam to represent the man on the street, because then that contextualizes all of the threats and all of the stakes,” Bradley says. “You need a Sam for Jon Snow to make sense. In order for Jon Snow to appear above and beyond the regular guy, you need to see the regular guy. And as much as a lot of men don't like to admit it... Sam's coping with it is probably how they cope with it.”
Ser Jorah: says his fave moment was during season 5 and the Fighting Pits of Mereen. His family was there and they dressed his daughter like a mini Jorah
Gendry: “I auditioned for the pilot. I had no idea what Game of Thrones was. Didn't get it. Kind of forgot about it,” he says. “Nobody knew it was going to become the biggest TV show on the planet at that point. It was just another audition.” Also talks about the sex scene with Maisie.
