Amazing. No, she’s one of the finest actresses I’ve ever worked with. I couldn’t be happier. Michelle is one of the reasons that I can get up at 3 a.m. and be in the mud on set at 5 a.m. in Belfast in the dark and still smiling because I get a scene with Michelle. We’re very close off set anyway. We’re very good friends. And I think we care greatly about the show and we’ve managed to make a really good dialogue, I think. And what’s lovely is I can get on set with Michelle and we can look each other in the eye and instantly get into a dialogue that’s detailed and deep and subtle and challenging. And we trust each other implicitly as actors and that makes for such a—I’m like overwhelmed at how lucky I feel that I get to have that relationship with an actress, especially an actress that I have such significant work to do with this season. She’s outstanding and makes like every day a pleasure working with her, especially in scenes that I consider the toughest scenes of the show for me.

EXCEPT FOR JON SNOW.

ACTUAL TEARS.

Bwahahaha! …old news that Michelle Fairley is pretty much everywhere (I saw that a DL of the Ejiofor/McGregor/Grandage/Donmar Othello -so worth it- is even floating around Tumblr today and Hey! Misfits is on Hulu now which is much better viewing than when I caught it on YouTube last year -and, of course, Hollywood is attempting a fuck up remake) but Jon Snow meta-emo-schmoopiness will always get a reblog!

“Last night’s finale saw the completion of Daenerys’s transformation. Coming out of the fire naked, with her three young dragons, it was as if she’d been reborn. Though Daenerys loved Khal Drogo, she doesn’t need him anymore; she can raise a khalasar on her own.”
“Cersei has overcome the limitations Westerosi society has imposed on her by strategy and treachery, and though she’s far from sympathetic—this is, after all, a woman who had a boy pushed out of a window to protect her secret affair with her brother—it’s not impossible to understand how she became the cold-hearted woman she is.”
“But it’s Lady Catelyn who comforts her son after they learn of Ned’s death, not the other way around. And it’s Lady Catelyn who coolly, pragmatically defines out the Starks’ battle strategy for the ‘King in the North’: ‘We have to get the girls back. And then we will kill them all.’
“It’s both sad and somehow poetic that her survival rests on her ability to blend in as a young boy. Of course, tomboyishness is not the same thing as masculinity, and it would be a mistake to equate the two—Arya is every bit as female as her sister Sansa. But Westeros has a very specific set of rules for noble-born women, and Arya’s not interested in playing by any of them.”
“For a girl who’s been criticized by many fans as snotty and immature, it’s a turning point; when she looks on her father and handmaiden’s heads of her own free will, it’s an act of defiance, and of sorrow, and of guilt. Not so long ago, Sansa was naïve, but the scales have clearly fallen from her eyes—and as she stands, she’s the best-positioned Stark to strike back at the Lannisters.”

Catelyn lifted her face, and Ned kissed her. Her maimed fingers clutched against his back with a desperate strength, as if to hold him safe forever in the shelter of her arms.

Cat: “I won’t let him take you.”
Ned: “The King takes what he wants. That’s why he’s King.”
Cat: “I’ll say, “Listen, fat man. You are not taking my husband anywhere. He belongs to me now.”

…let’s just take a minute to make it even more sad!
