Richard Madden knows how lucky he is that “Game of Thrones” executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss didn’t follow George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” books exactly for Season 2 of the HBO hit.

If they had, he would not have been in it. His character, Robb Stark, would not be arguing with his mother, defeating the Lannisters in battle or, maybe most importantly, meeting the woman of his dreams.

“It was a huge compliment for me that David and Dan kind of believed in what I was doing enough to allow that to happen and me to run with it,” Madden, 26, told me last week during a phone interview. “It’s allowed me to do scenes that no one has seen because they weren’t in the books. So I was very thankful and very pleased.”

In the latest episode, “Garden of Bones,” Robb’s army wins another battle and afterward he meets Talisa (Oona Chaplin), a healer helping the injured on the battlefield. It isn’t clear if Talisa is meant to be Jeyne, a character from the books, but one thing is certain: She has cast a spell over Robb.

“She’s a breath of fresh air, kind of light in this darkness. He’s never met or seen anyone like her before,” he said.

The romance gave the Scottish actor another chance to interpret Robb in his own way, and to play emotions he hasn’t had a chance to explore with the character. This being “Game of Thrones,” it also gave him a chance to ditch Robb’s heavy costumes of leather, furs and armor.

“Umm, without spoiling it, I think you’re going to see Robb wearing less armor than normal,” Madden said, laughing. “How’s that?”

I’m sure fans will be happy to hear it. Madden and I talked more about Robb’s evolution, working with Michelle Fairley (who plays his mother, Lady Catelyn), and whether Robb’s honor could lead to trouble like it did for his father, Ned Stark.

When I chatted with him last week in a Santa Monica conference room, The King in the North was satisfied.

No, Robb Stark hadn’t avenged his father’s death, nor reunited with his sisters. He hadn’t consolidated power in Westeros and taken his place on the Iron Throne.

He’d simply found out that the cookie he thought contained marshmallows, actually contained white chocolate chips. And that was satisfactory.

In truth, it’s very easy to tell Scottish actor Richard Madden apart from his character on HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” His hair is shorter. His wardrobe goes beyond furs and armor. Oh, and Madden’s also prone to laughing and joking, which hasn’t been a part of Robb Stark’s emotional range lately. Who has time to smile when, as you may have heard, winter is coming.

As “Game of Thrones” moves deeper into its second season, things are getting darker and darker in war-torn Westeros and Robb Stark is moving into uncharted territory. Robb’s exploits are largely discussed second-hand in George R.R. Martin’s “A Clash of Kings,” but to keep Madden in the fold, series showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss chose to depict moments that were only referred to in passing before.

In our conversation — the cookies only came into play at the end — Madden discusses Robb’s evolution, the honor of having scenes added to keep him around and his season-by-season approach to reading Martin’s novels.

[Note: There are some minor spoilers in this interview. They’re very minor, but if you want to remain pristine, tread with caution.]
