Red Wedding actor talks about his surprise return to Game of Thrones



The latest Game of Thrones episode, Blood of my Blood saw the return of two characters whom we haven’t seen in years. The last time we saw Edmure Tully and Walder Frey, the Red Wedding happened. In that shocking episode, Edmure was taken away and locked in the cell, while rest of the people were slaughtered, which included Robb Stark, Catelyn Stark, Talisa Stark and her unborn baby and many more Stark and Tully bannermen. Luckily, the Blackfish managed to escape and we are going to meet him in the next episode, The Broken Man.

EW talked with Tobias Menzies, who plays the character of Edmure Tully in the show. It’s been almost 3 years since he was last seen in the show and even he admitted that he had no idea that his character Edmure would return to the show. “Yeah, of course. There had been a couple of seasons and so I didn’t really have a huge expectation that I would come back. It was very, a nice surprise,” said Menzies while speaking with EW.

He felt that even the showrunners weren’t sure about bringing his character back to the show and they just found the way to his character while choosing which parts of the book they wanted to include in the show. He also made it clear that he never received any information about the return of his characters from the producers till the last moment.

No, and I’m not sure they knew themselves. I think they’ve sort of found their way and chose what bits of the book they are doing. They just got in contact a little bit before we shot to see whether I was available, whether they could fit me in. It was a question of fitting in amongst my other commitments. But I’m a big fan of the show and was keen to make it work if I could.

Menzies is currently starring in The Night Manager and Outlander and he had to juggle the dates to make sure that he managed to make time for appearing on Game of Thrones. He admitted that he is a big fan of Game of Thrones and he was keen to make time for the show.

Menzies talked about his character in the show and said that Edmure might have been in the prison for around a year but he was unclear about how much time might have actually passed by. While talking about the future of his character, he teased about what might happen in the coming episodes.

He is still a prisoner of the Freys and then the Freys try and use him as bait to reclaim Riverrun, which is his ancestral home. And then Jamie Lannister gets involved. [Edmure] becomes a pawn in a large political fight. He ends up having to make a very difficult decision over whether to betray his family.
