Here is what the Game of Thrones actors, who play Jorah Mormont and Samwell Tarly respectively, had to share with the mag:
Iain on Jorah’s love for Dany and how that sparked fan-fiction: “In a chaotic, mad, dangerous, and violent world in which people are generally out for themselves…the purity of his desire to support her—to be there for her—is a nice contrast to the rest of the show. For the first two, three seasons, it was about this desire to express that from his point of view, but never doing it.”
John on filming the Battle of Winterfell: “When you’re doing 60 night shoots and you’re going to bed at 6 am and waking up at two in the afternoon and going to work again, you feel that your entire body’s been affected on a molecular level because you’re completely separated from your real life. When you’re up and socializing, your friends are all in bed and the other way around. When your friends are up, you’re in bed. So you find yourself being completely cut off from reality.”
