Alfie Allen says that Theon does not change his morality, he just makes bad decisions. New interview at whatculture.com.
And he hopes to get into a James Bond movie! (Not Theon, Alfie) :D
Q. Did you find that you had a lot more to do in the second series with Theon’s larger role and let’s say… change in morality?
Alfie: (laughs) Yeah I did, but I don’t really think he… It’s not like I really knowingly did that (changed morality). I don’t think he changes. I don’t think I’m allowed to say this so I won’t say much but I think he just makes the wrong decisions through thinking that he’s making the right ones. So his morals are constantly the same but he’s just not that smart in his decision making so ultimately that kind of changes what he does. I don’t think his morals change in his head but I think he sets out to do the right thing but he just ends up doing the wrong thing.
Q. Do you enjoy playing the villain?
Alfie: Yes! Yeah I do, definitely. I don’t think I’ll ever play James Bond but I might play a James Bond villain!
Q. What was your favourite part of the first season?
Alfie: My favourite part? I thought some of the stuff between Cersei and Robert was brilliant, that scene where he basically just says, “You know I’ve never really liked you that much,” and she’s like, “I was in love with you but now I’m not.” I thought that was pretty amazing, that scene was fantastic. Then obviously, (whispers) the person who dies, you know, that scene.
Q. And what about from your own scenes?
Alfie: From my own stuff, I like my scene with me and Ros, I thought it was great I was wanted to know what it looked like on camera (:D :D :D). I was really happy with it when I saw it. I was in training for four months previously and I wanted to see what I looked like, how much my body had changed so that was interesting. Esmé Bianco, who plays Ros, she made that scene so much easier for me and it was just fun.
