Kit and Richard interview with Función

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.
