‘Game Of Thrones’ Actor Iain Glen Warns Of Major Fight Coming Ahead For Jorah, Greyscale And Dany, Highlight Hollywood News

 In Sunday’s Game of Thrones, he must convince his former queen Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) to welcome him back into her good graces. He made a dramatic return to Meereen in the previous episode, winning a gladiatorial match and delivering Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) to her. But when fans last saw Jorah and Daenerys together, she banished him and threatened his life for spying on her for the previous King, Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy).


But it isn’t so easily over, as Glen reveals just how dire things are for Jorah and teases a “massive fight” to come.   “Without giving too much away, it was a kind of prequel — what you saw — where suddenly and unexpectedly the queen was there in the kind of pre-fighting, before the main gladiatorial contest. There’s still a massive, massive fight to come.”




Speaking about the stunt work, he admitted, “I got to do all of it myself. When I trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art a number of years ago, it was always a big part of the training there. Ralph Fiennes and myself were very keen on it. They would invite directors to come and judge students, who would pair off. Usually you would cobble something together a week before it, but Ralph and I had been working thoroughly on it for about a year-and-a-half because we were so keen on using swords.”SerJorah




“My journey with Peter was one where there was a fair degree of antagonism. During the course of our travels together, he’s been enlightened to the degree of my loyalty and just what it is about Daenerys that is worth following. She’s one of the few pretenders to the throne who has humanity and would become a benign leader. Peter is going to start going on that journey as well when he witnesses her firsthand,” added the handsome actor.



So, will the Dragon Queen allow him back in her favor? “Daenerys discovered that at the time when I first met her, I was trying to earn the good favor of Robert Baratheon by telling him her whereabouts. But minutes after I first met her, I grew to adore her and respect her and then spent four seasons trying to protect her. I’m hoping to show that I’m worth a second chance.”



“In spite of everything, they have worked very well with each other and Jorah’s advice over the years has been good advice. She recognizes that,” when speaking about the problems Dany faces in Meereen.  “Things have gone somewhat pear-shaped since his departure. So he’s a wise voice that is worth listening to. Maybe that will be part of the reason why she might entertain him again. Realizing that she had been in a better place with him beside her. That’s my hope.”


Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
