According to Paddy Considine, George RR Martin told him on HotD that “your Viserys is better than my Viserys.”
Having gotten a text from George RR Martin regarding his performance in House of the Dragon, Paddy Considine has spoken out about it.
The British actor played Viserys Targaryen, the father of the Targaryen family and monarch, in the Game of Thrones spin-off series.
Viserys’s health has gradually declined throughout the season, and the episode that aired on Sunday (9 October) night showed him taking his final breath while pleading for “no more” suffering.
Considine claimed that Game of Thrones writer George R. R. Martin personally gave his seal of approval to his portrayal of Viserys in a recent interview with GQ Hype.
He recalled receiving a text message that simply read, “Your Viserys is better than my Viserys.”
It was written by George R. R. Martin. That should finish it, I thought. I appreciate your faith in me.
The Hot Fuzz actor claimed in another section of the interview that he didn’t understand fans who believed his House of the Dragon character was uninteresting.
Considine remarked that “he was the only person in this kingdom who had any f***ing morality whatsoever.” He maintains the illusion of unity for as long as he possibly can. I found him to be a joy to play with. Above everything else, he placed duty above all else. I’m not sure if everyone completely understood what I said.
There is a misconception that he is weak, which I find to be complete rubbish. He is simply too kind for the position. The sense of obligation, in my opinion, is what affected him.
