Thanks to my dear friend Mariana we have the translation of this interview, enjoy it!

The heartthrobs of “Game of Thrones” Richard Madden and Kit Harington, who play the brothers Robb Stark and Jon Snow in the series, praised the beauty of Brazilian women during a press conference with journalists in Rio de Janeiro, this Friday morning (13). The British actors landed in the city last night to promote the new season of the series based on the books of George R.R. Martin and, despite their short stay, have already been surrounded by fans. (Note: THEY SAIS HARASSED BUT IN ENGLISH I THINK THE MEANING IS EVEN STRONGER THAN IN PORTUGUESE AND THEY DIDN’T MEAN IT AS A BAD THING. THEY WANTED TO EXPRESS HOW POPULAR THEY WERE, THAT’S ALL.)

To UOL, Kit Harington, who plays Ned Stark’s bastard son, told what a woman must to be like to have a shot with him. “The queen of my ‘real’ life must be funny. Brazilian women definitely have a shot with me. I’m loving Brazil”, he said. Richard Madden, who plays one of the candidates to the throne of Westeros, Robb Stark, showed himself to be more shy, but, an observer. “I can’t answer this kind of question. You make me shy, this way. But, yes, Brazilian women are beautiful”, he assured, with rosy cheeks, heavily praising Rio.

The two of them have already met a few bars and made a walk by the beach. “We arrived last night, so we didn’t have much time. But everything’s very beautiful”, complimented Kit. Richard seemed very enthusiastic about Rio nightlife. “Last night we went to a few bars and I intend on doing it again tonight. So, maybe fans will bump into me. I made a short walk and, because I’m jet lagged, I watched the sunrise. The sun rising on the beach is beautiful”, told Madden, who’s staying with Harington in a hotel at Copacabana Beach.

If power is calculated by who wins the most battles, then Robb Stark, the King of the North, is the most powerful of the five kings in Game of Thrones. While he tries to shore up allies — sending his mother off to make a treaty with King Renly and his foster-brother Theon to make an offer to Balon Greyjoy — Robb spends his time sneaking up on other regiments, taking them by surprise. His ultimate goal is to defeat the Lannisters, one of whom, Jaime, he already holds captive. So far, so good. But as readers of the George R.R. Martin books know, good luck can be short-lived in Westeros. The Scottish actor Richard Madden, who plays Robb Stark, was in town recently, and was good enough to hold court with Vulture and discuss his thoughts on his first time in New York, which of the GoT moms would win in a fight, and wanting to kill Joffrey.

When we last saw Robb Stark (Richard Madden), he was leading the North to war against King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) to avenge his father’s death, and after a string of victories that stretched south into the Riverlands, it looks as if the King in the North is on an unstoppable streak. However, as the late Ned Stark’s eldest son will learn, this game of thrones is not all about winning the battles.

In Season 2 of HBO hit fantasy series “Game of Thrones” (Sundays at 9 p.m. ET), the newly-appointed King of the North will need to start using his head more than his sword. He’s already sent his mother Lady Catelyn (Michelle Fairley) off to negotiate an alliance with King Renly (Gethin Anthony) in Highgarden, and he also has his captive, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), at his — and his direwolf Grey Wind’s — mercy.

Yet, Robb Stark is still his father’s son, and his honorable nature is something that actor Richard Madden says might get the Young Wolf into trouble. After all, fans of George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Fire and Ice” know that oftentimes, honorable men have no place in war.

“Honor is a Stark trait, and it’s going to be a real problem for Robb,” Madden told HuffPost TV. “What I love so much about him is that he follows his heart in everything he’s does. He’s one of the only characters where everything comes from a sense of good, and being just and fair. But this whole situation has become much bigger than him just looking after his family. He’s looking after 20,000 men, and they’ve all got mothers and wives and daughters and sons all behind them, so now he has 20,000 families to look after. He’s got a great heart, and he cares about people a lot, but that will also end up causing him a lot of problems later.”

Madden also talked to HuffPost TV about what’s to come for Robb Stark. Apparently, this means that viewers will get to see a bit more of Robb this season.

Lots of politics in Game of Thrones:

Visiting Mexico, actors Kit Harington and Richard Madden, explained how the HBO series, is related to the real world.
Since it’s launch in 2011, the series Game of Thrones, has won followers around the world. However, the comparisons with other productions like Mad Men, Breaking Bad or The Sopranos did not wait because of the amount of drama and intrigues that their plots hold.

But for Richard Madden (Robb Stark) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow), two of the lead actors of the show, inspired by the A song of Ice and Fire series, of the author Geroge R. R. Martin, as the season progresses, that premiered April 1st worlwide, the comparison will no longer exist, since they will go deeper into the political side of the story.

“The show is about pilitics. Currently we live in a world in which this is a daily issue, and it’s a game in which we are all part of. It’s not about the people itself, it’s about power. But I also think that the success it’s got is because even though there is politics involved, there’s also fantasy and emotions, and people want to lose themselves in this world after their day by day”, Harington says in his interview with Función.

In this season, the plot produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss for HBO, is based on an upcoming war to conquer the throne of Westeros.

“In the world of politics that we live in, we don’t see what happens behind close doors, we don’t know the conversations that take place between those that have the power. In the show we do, and that is why is so interesting to people to see how far are they willing to go to survive” Madden adds.

During their visit to promote the production, the actors agreed that in the series, that has already confirmed its third season,each and every explicit sex and violence scene is justificated, because it’s about telling a story in which “the animal instinct” that the human being has, is at surface.

“I never believed that television should be censored, I think we should be allowed to do what we want, not to stop the creativity. There’s gonna be people that are going to like it, and others that won’t, but in this case there’s reason to put all of those explicit sex and violence scenes, they are needed to portray this world”, affirms Harington.

“The violence and the sex is the world in which the characters live in, and in the one we live there’s also sex and violence. Some of the characters have a very developed animal instinct, but there are others who talk about loyalty and honor in the decisions they take. In many levels the characters reach out to people”, Madden added.

According to Harington, the series, contrary to what one might think, has a feminist overtone. 

“The way the women are treated, is a reflection of what happens when a man sees a girl. I think the show in some way is feminist, the most powerful, the strongest roles are for them”.

“(The women) are the most brutal of the show, the say the show is made for the men, but that is the falsest thing I’ve heard, because in the streets at least 60% of people who approche me to talk about GOT are women”, added Harington.
