The filming experience was more fun on The Tunnel, to be honest, more… humane. GoT is more of an industrial filming experience; you don’t actually meet that many people. I’ve only met three other cast members. I’d never met Natalie!
What makes a good co-star?
Working with Clémence [Poésy, his co-star in The Tunnel] was nice – she’s present, professional, responsive, knows what she’s doing. She didn’t come on set with an idea that I had to organise myself around. It was very collaborative.
Do you have any tricks to learning your lines?
Tricks? No. I often don’t even learn them, to be honest. I just turn up and trust that the reality of the situation will produce those lines. It depends how good a script is, often, and then trust that there’s enough time to refine the work.
Who should win RT’s Audience award?
I haven’t seen any of them! Sorry.
British Academy Television Awards are on Sunday 18 May at 8:00pm on BBC1.
