When you think back, Season 6 of Game of Thrones was brutal, especially because of the number of deaths. However, only few were ‘marked’ before they were killed off. Remember Loras Tyrell? Of course you do. Finn Jones, the actor who played Loras, has moved on to other projects after his exit from Game of Thrones. However, he showed up at the Chicago leg of HBO‘s Game of Thrones behind the scenes tour, and in an interview with entertainment portal Vulture, Finn Jones talked about Loras, and more. Read on!
First of all, he talked about the scene in Season 6 where his forehead was cut. He said :
“They made a template of my forehead, which was like a hardened surface with blood already in it, and they put a prosthetic on my forehead so when he cuts my forehead, the template can drip blood…Eugene Simon [Lancel] just had to make sure he got the right starting point, and carved around it. The cool thing was that he could dig his knife in and it would leave a wound, but once you took the knife out, it was almost like the prosthetic would reset itself to be like unbreakable skin. It was like it was self-healing. It’s amazing how much work goes into even just a small scene, how much goes into every detail.”
Talking about what might have made Loras so submissive, Finn said :
“A lot of people said, “Oh, Loras is weak. Why didn’t he stand up for himself? He’s supposed to be a warrior!” All this shit. The show didn’t show much of Loras’s torture, so it might be hard to find empathy with his situation, but when you get into the mindset of what it must be like to be down in those dungeons, he would have been abused. Pretty badly abused. I think a Theon-level of abuse when on down there. His spirit, his body, and his mind were broken to such a drastic extreme that he was willing to just do anything to make it stop. I believe what happened is they gave Loras a speech to read and said, “Look, you just turn up on the day, say this, and then you’ll be free.” So the way I played it, the speech that you hear me do, those weren’t my own words. I was pretty much forced against my will to deliver that speech.”
…and about what Loras could have been :
“He would have turned into this kind of vengeful, war-torn warrior, because he’s lost everything — his love, his title, his looks. All of the things that made him this arrogant, gleaming young knight have been taken from him. It would have been really interesting to see what would have happened next, because you’ve got this really powerful warrior still inside him.”
Finn Jones is currently working on Marvel’s Iron Fist, a Netflix production, which puts him in the shoes of a superhero. Considering how he died in Game of Thrones, we must say, this is quite an upgrade which Finn has gotten.
