Richard Madden Doesn't Like All The Red Carpet Stuff of Fame

Richard Madden gives his best Thinker face in this new shot from the March 2015 issue of Nylon.

The 28-year-old actor opened up about his rising fame, Game of Thrones and Cinderella. Check it:

On his growing fame: “Being in other countries was when I realized Game of Thrones was so big, because in my head I just shot a little TV show in Ireland. You’re walking around in Paris or Rome and strangers want to take a selfie with you, and you’re like, ‘Oh shit, this is kind of big.’”

On his parents watching him die onscreen on GoT: “It’s f***ing heartbreaking because I don’t think my mum and dad—particularly my mum—can ever separate it as if it’s not me. It’s always me.”

On preparing for a role: “When I’m not working, I’m either getting thin and fit to do a job, or, if I don’t have to be working out every day, I can get fat and drink beer.”

On the press tour for Cinderella: “I hate all the red carpet stuff. It’s weird, because it’s part of what’s expected of you now. I’m an actor. That’s my job. But actually, no, this has got to be part of my profession. You just suck it up and try and make it as painless as possible.”
