Richard Madden ‘grateful’ for Game of Thrones role
Richard Madden is grateful for his time on ‘Game of Thrones’ - but is glad he left years ago.
The 32-year-old actor departed the show in season three after his character Robb Stark died and whilst he is so thankful for his role and had the “best time”, he thinks those stars that have stayed on throughout the eight seasons deserve a “medal”.
He said: “It was such a hard thing to finish because from first pilot to my death was five years. And I think, five years to spend with any one character - cause you just kinda put them on the shelf for six months and then you take them back again. I had the best time, it helped me so much with my career and my experience. I learned a lot just from shooting 30 hours of television, I really started to learn my trade doing that.”
