Four seasons and thousands of pages of the complex historical drama has been broken down into 30-second soundbites by the “Game of Thrones” cast, but one of them got a little off track.
As Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington and Maisie Williams all described the HBO blockbuster for Entertainment Weekly using grisly adjectives straight out of George R.R Martin’s novels, Peter Dinklage seemed to be recalling AMC’s “Breaking Bad.”
“Tyrion is a science chemistry teacher at a high school and finds this guy, Jesse Pinkman, and they get a Winnebago,” Dinklage said dryly, slipping into Walter White’s fictional life story. “Then they get involved with a fried chicken place.”
His co-stars took more direct routes in catching viewers up on the previous four seasons of the groundbreaking drama, however.
“Death, death, death, revenge,” said Williams, while revealing a new sophisticated look for tomboy Arya Stark in the upcoming fifth season.
Harington, a.k.a. Jon Snow, actually offered some useful information: “Ned gets killed, dragons get hatched,” he said, “Sex, not necessarily loving.”
Clarke, as the exotic last survivor of the House Targaryen, simply said: “Dragons! Daenerys wins,” with a hearty thumbs up.
Season 5 of “Game of Thrones” premieres on HBO April 12 at 9 p.m.
