Here’s what he had to share:

On stealing some of his favorite props from the set of Game of Thrones: “I think I snuck a couple things from there… They can’t take back from me now! I took the little map markers. The Lannister one and Stark one because if you’ve seen Thrones, I spend a lot of times standing over maps, talking about map stuff. And also there’s one scene where – I think it might actually be a sex scene – where I’m in this gorgeous big dressing gown, so that went in my suitcase, and I took it home. I mean, I don’t wear it around the house… I tried to but the sleeves are up to here so you just knock things over all the time!”

On playing John Reid, Elton John‘s manager, in the 2019 biopic Rocketman: “And his first boyfriend! … It was a great script again which goes from really dramatic, intense scenes into a song and dance number, which is telling a whole different part of the story.” (He added this his singing voice is “not great! Haha.”)
