Kit Harington had no idea his sword-wielding character in Eternals before his casting
It’s always a pleasure to see our favorite Game Of Thrones stars on other shows. The Game of Thrones star Tobias Menzies, who played Edmure Tully in the show, partnered with Sophie Okonédo for Modern Amazon Love Season 2.
The duo play divorced parents trying to rekindle a lost flame in the show’s second season. In a recent interview with Collider, Menzies explains why he was drawn to the Modern Love script.
“I read the article and listened to the podcast, which is also a read of the article, and felt the vibe of the New York Times article itself. This is where I started. We’re doing a dramatization, but it wasn’t fiction when it was released, so it’s the real life of this couple. It inherently attracted me to it.
When asked about his experience working with Sophie, he said: “He’s really one of the best actors I’ve worked with. She’s really genuine, very honest about things, and really insists on making it happen on camera. You can’t pretend, which is really galvanizing and energizing. It’s exciting. “
“We had a similar way of working. We were both interested in digging into the script with Kieran [Carney] and Jean [Carney], in the week or two before, and talking about possible changes or whether there were things we could cut, and they were open to that as well. On that side, I find it really useful, as a way to access material where there could be pushes and pulls and conversation around the material itself. You never really know when you’re getting into these things, but it was a pretty happy collaboration.
