Richard Madden and Kit Harington said the guys in the cast text each other to share theories and geek out. Do the girls get in on that action?
We’re all really close. We constantly Skype. And I was just having a conversation with Emilia [Clarke, who plays Daenerys] about all this, because I have all these theories about who Jon Snow’s mother and father really are. I think that his mother is Lyanna Stark, Ned’s sister, and I think his father is not Ned, but that Ned just took him on, that his father was actually Rhaegar Targaryen. The Targaryens had a lot of incestuous relationships, to keep the bloodline pure, so this wouldn’t be out of bounds for them, but I want Jon Snow and Dany to get together! I would love for Jon Snow and Dany to end up on the Iron Throne together. That’s just if I’m watching it, and not in it, because of course I would love to see Sansa on the Iron Throne, too — and I don’t want anything incestuous for Sansa! [Laughs.] I love her, because I’m very biased towards my character, but Arya is my favorite. I think the women are the ones with the real strength in the series, the mental strength, and you can see this divide clearly in the books — that the women are going to come to power. Although Sansa is in a very complicated position right now, in a state of domestic abuse.
