On Beyond the Wall at Miltos Yerolemou talks among other things about hard work, instincts and flamboyance as well as future, current and past projects.

We learn about the impact of theatre play One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest on the audience, why he probably will be seen only in a director’s cut version of The Inbetweeners Movie, the voice acting he did some years ago for a Lord of the Rings Playstation video game (you will NEVER guess which character he lent his voice to!) and that he RSCed again this year. (>>RSC: Royal Shakespear Company)

Also mentioned: dabbling, drama inheritance, a distant connection to Charlie Chaplin, Miltos’ experience with the Greek Mafia, circus, his attitude towards whacking people, how he was drawn to performance art and how his parents reacted when their son told them that he did want to become an actor instead of a … No – I won’t tell!

A huge part of the interview was dedicated to Game of Thrones topics, of course. Just to give a few examples: the fact that Miltos didn’t came unarmed to the audition for the part of Syrio Forel, how meeting Sean Bean felt like or how difficult it can be to find a stuntman’s thigh under lots of armor and cloak’s cloth, what character in GoT he’d like to play – and which scene – if he had the choice.

Unevitable the “Is he REALLY dead?” question, though lovely accompanied with a possible Yoda/Obi-Wan approach for future seasons. Oh, and are there ANY GoT actors who have read George R. R. Martin’s books?? ;o)

Heartfelt thanks go to the Beyond the Wall team and Miltos for making the dreadful task of ironing easier for me…

Go see it or – if you don’t have the time/live too far away – just visit the next library/bookstore and lend/buy the novel of Ken Kesey.

Or watch the movie with Jack Nicholson.

At least watch The Simpsons episode:
