There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.I think he's been mostly dead for a couple episodes, as Miracle Max would say.
The moment that you’re talking about in Episode 8 was an accident, actually. I was climbing the stairs, and the crown fell off my head. Matt just picked it up. We carried on with the take, I sat on the throne, and he placed it on my head. Afterward, we went to Geeta and said, “Look, that’s the moment.” I’ve done films in the past where stuff like that had happened, these beautiful accidents, and they’ve been ignored or not acknowledged.
I just remember going to Geeta and saying, “Please keep that in. Please, let’s keep that as part of the scene because it’s so poignant.” Thank God Geeta is aware enough to have seen that as a really big moment because it wasn’t on paper. That beautiful moment where Viserys slumps into the chair, and then his brother puts that crown on his head—you don’t need any words for that. It’s done. That’s just a testament to how engrossed we were in this story. And how much we wanted to tell this story, really too.
OK, yeah, that was a very solid EP, and Paddy Considine holy hell, he was amazing.
Yep. This made me love that scene even more. Such amazing actors & chemistry. In fact, one reason Matt Smith took the role was to be able to act with Paddy who he greatly admires. Paddy better be up for an Emmy. He acted the hell out of Viserys.OK, yeah, that was a very solid EP, and Paddy Considine holy hell, he was amazing.
The scene above? I just read that wasn't scripted, like the crown fell off during the shot, and Matt Smith picked it up and kind of just kept shooting. A couple of people pointed out how it was sort of awkward, like almost too real, which I think it what made it work so well.
This scene spoke volumes. I think I've rewatched it around 25 times. Matt Smith says so much with only a sigh. What a moment between these two.
