Old Gods And New Horizons: Hannah Murray Interviewed

Hannah Murray is reflecting on her not-so-pretty role as Gilly in HBO’s fantasy hit Game Of Thrones.

“People sometimes say that I look better in real life, which I’m quite pleased about because I think I look really rubbish in the show. But then I always think that, because they still recognise me, I can’t look that much better.”

It’s mid-July and an uncharacteristic English summer sun is threatening to frazzle her pale complexion ahead of this feature’s photo shoot in Richmond Park. Strangely enough, such a climate echoes a key scene in her new film God Help The Girl, in which in aspiring band of three young friends bond over a day out in the countryside on a similarly uncharacteristic Glaswegian summer’s day.
