#Quote
1You have to be delicate with how you can portray characters other people are having a worship over.
2When you're not in studios, you don't have any luxuries; you can't control the elements, so you have to put up with those extremes.
3I don't want to get up at 4am for something I don't care about.
4You learn something new on every film.
5We don't really get to see gay characters who are completely open with their sexuality, but it doesn't define who they are.
6To be with Derek Jacobi and Stellan Skarsgård, it's a master class in acting every day.
7The costume affects your posture, affects your walk, how you hold yourself, and how you breathe. The costumes make you deliver.
8No one is safe in Game of Thrones (2011).
9Robb Stark was a young man not expecting anything, thinking his life is going to be on one path, and then he's pushed. More weight and responsibility get put onto him; more demands are made of him. For me, as an actor, there are parallels to that.
10Oh, I am not naturally gifted in dancing in any way! Stupidly, I didn't go to those classes in drama school. I was like, 'I don't need that; I'll never be dancing in anything.'
11I've watched 'Doctor Who' since I was a kid. I loved it, and I still love it. I can geek out about it, like when I go to set and see the TARDIS.
12I'm a sci-fi guy. But I like fantasy too.
13I'm lucky to get jobs where I get these amazing film horses that make me look much better than I am.
14If ever anyone comes up to me, it's usually like, 'You look really like that guy on that show.' And you're like, 'Really?' And they're like, 'Yeah. Cool. See you later.' And you're like, 'Cool, man.'
15I'm dying to do something sci-fi! I would love to be on a spaceship and firing a laser gun! Something like that would be really awesome. Or something with dinosaurs. Or preferably both at once.
16I went to drama school in Scotland.
17I was at a rough high school where admitting you were an actor didn't go down well.
18I was a nervous kid, not great socially.
19I was always a bit old for my age, then suddenly I'm on set, working alongside the adults, skipping school completely for two years.
20I try to be outdoors as much as I can.
21I thought Game of Thrones (2011) had this challenge in filming, and it's one of those things you think, 'It can't get worse than this,' because it's really cold, and you're in pain, and it's miserable.
22I think meeting someone like, meeting Sam Shepard, that was someone who was kind of important for me, because I'd read so much of his work and watched him as an actor since I was a kid, then being on set doing a scene with him and thinking, 'This is really surreal.'
23I played Romeo when I was younger, and I think I did a couple kind Romeo-like parts after that, and I kind of went, 'I mustn't do this again. I must always choose something that I don't know if I'm a good enough actor to play.'
24I think I'd much rather have a wooden stick and metallic ball than a real dire wolf on set.
25I think I need to film something tropical on a beach in a bar.
26I need to kind of get a job that's going to take me to, like, Hawaii or Rio or something, right? Maybe I need to make better decisions with that.
27I only have an awareness of what I'm trying to achieve as an actor and what my job as the character is to service.
28I love doing television; it's such a brilliant way to tell a story over six hours rather over the two hours of doing a movie.
29I love Lady Stoneheart!
30I love Jon Snow's character.
31I love 'Doctor Who.'
32I just love to be able to actually build a character.
33I kind of started Game of Thrones (2011) as a really young actor and not a lot on my CV.
34I like to try to change things up a bit in the way that actors such as Philip Seymour Hoffman or Michael Fassbender did and do.
35I know people like Jon Snow a lot.
36I can see how child stars can be thrown off-kilter.
37Game of Thrones (2011) couldn't be a movie. There's too much in it. You couldn't do it justice.
38I hate all the red carpet stuff. It's weird, because it's part of what's expected of you now.
39I always try to pick my parts to be as diverse as I can, and especially when you do Game of Thrones (2011) for so many months of the year.
40I have two sisters, so we watched all of the Disney films. I think I still know the lyrics to them all.
41Doing jobs that are completely different to the last thing I did pushes me as an actor to change as much as I can. It would be easy for me to stay in a similar vein of characters or jobs, but I'm drawn to challenging myself.
42On his character from Klondike (2014): Bill Haskell was real.
43I'm an actor and my job is to interpret.
44Doing Shakespeare on stage with Kenneth Branagh, I don't think it gets better than that.
45When I'm not working, I like to be comfortable. I do like to dress smart, but comfort is important.
46It's nice to have recognition for doing a good job, but at the end of the day, I'm just an actor and I'm doing my job and I'm always trying to get better at doing that job.
47I have such pride in my job.
48I try to live honestly in every aspect of my life, which can make things a bit more complicated, right?
49I think it's good for an actor to bounce between stuff on camera and stuff in theatre. If I could do half and half every year I would be a very, very happy man.
50I'd love to do something on Broadway. I'd love to spend some time in New York.
51Good people never survive on Game of Thrones (2011). That's the problem.
52Typically in Game of Thrones (2011) people who are honest and just and do things for the right reasons tend not to survive.
53When I was younger, I did a TV show in the U.K. for a couple years, and I learned a lot from that. It taught me a lot about being known amongst your peers and having to deal with a lot of derision from them.
54I think often I learn the most from other people's mistakes. If I'm in the audience watching an actor and thinking, 'I don't believe you,' I spend the rest of the play working out why I don't believe them.
55One of the most beautiful things about Game of Thrones (2011) is it's told from so many different points of view, and these characters can convince you that what they're doing is right. But they're only showing you a bit of the picture, and when you see it from another character's point of view you may switch allegiances.
56I believe in love at first sight and hindsight.
57I like clothes and fashion. It's a hobby for me and I really enjoy being part of it, so it's nice when people say: 'He can dress quite well.'
58Google is the enemy. I would tell that to anyone who enjoys any TV show like 'Game of Thrones' to avoid it; it spoils so many storylines.
59I don't find it hard to stay humble.
60You act at being a man, and before you know it, you are one.
61I just think of myself as an upstart who is trying to get better at what I do.
