(Warning: This post contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Episode 309, “The Rains of Castamere” — but you already knew that.)
The Lannisters sent their regards to Richard Madden through British GQ Thursday, as the publication shared a video in which they made the “Game of Thrones” alum sit through a viewing of the infamous Red Wedding scene. You know, the one where Madden’s Robb Stark gets murdered — as does his wife, unborn child and mother.
“I think it’s really rude you’ve made me watch this,” Madden says, as he begins to relive the bloody segment from the Season 3 episode, “The Rains of Castamere.”
He settles in to get through it, something he said was rough the last time he watched it with fellow “GoT” alum Michelle Fairley, who played his mum, Catelyn Stark. “I think we were actually both in tears by the end of it, quite embarrassingly. So let’s hope I don’t cry today,” he said.
Madden doesn’t cry, but he does cringe while rewatching the scene, stopping to offer commentary every now and then. Did you know that the drummer there is Coldplay’s drummer? Hey, that guy there who stabs Robb’s wife Talisa’s pregnant belly was also on Madden’s new Netflix series “Bodyguard”!
The actor recalls how after finishing filming, he had to get right on a plane — fake blood and all.
“I remember being on this flight back to London covered in fake blood, exhausted and just sobbing very loudly on the plane,” Madden said. “And people looking at me quite strangely, cause it looks like I just murdered someone and got on a flight. Which in fact I hadn’t — I’d been murdered!”
