Writer Will Smith compares Slow Horses to Game of Thrones


Will Smith, the showrunner, executive producer, and writer on the show, spoke to NME in an exclusive interview. He mentioned Season 3 includes major character deaths that will shock fans.

Smith stated, “I think the rule on it for me is that if you kill off a character and the audience isn’t upset, then you’ve left it too late.”

Smith also mentioned that he had reservations about killing off one major character during the season. He stated that he “was torn with it” and agonized over “all these ideas” to keep the characters alive.

Smith mentioned that he is still not over the death of Ned Stark. He implied that some of the character deaths in Slow Horses would generate a similar reaction to when Sean Bean’s character was killed unexpectedly in Season 1 of Game of Thrones.

“I like to think the show is good at surprises in that way, and it makes you feel like ‘oh God no!’ but that’s a good feeling because you’re reacting and engaging, which is what we want. I mean, I’m still not over Ned Stark.”
