Here’s what the 33-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On co-starring with Hollywood stars like Reese Witherspoon, Blake Lively, and Emilia Clarke: “[T]hey’re in the position they’re in rightfully. They’ve proven it. They’re all very talented and committed to their careers. They’re rock solid, and they all have amazing hair.”
On prepping for his role on Game of Thrones: “I had to bulk up! I worked out five days a week for an hour and a half. There were certain things I’d do before a shirtless scene, but I can’t tell you about them—it’s embarrassing.”
On stripping down for Game of Thrones: “That was actually one of the first scenes I read, and I thought that it was going to be fun. [My wife] said that I had a great ass. But she already knew that.”
