Game of Thrones is more than half-way through its excellent second season, and the show has seen more than its fair share of ugly characters. However, the Stark family provides the relief of watching honorable people, and Richard Madden and Kit Harington play two of the show’s most admirable characters. Madden plays Robb Stark who is leading a war to rescue his sisters from King’s Landing, and gain independence for the North. Harington plays Ned Stark’s bastard son Jon Snow and we’ve seen the character try to retain his father’s steadfast morality in the face of the Night Watch’s cold-hearted pragmatism. Our partners at Omelete got to sit down with the two actors and talk with them about a variety of topics including the series’ popularity, the controversial amount of sex scenes, the show’s production values, the influence of author George R.R. Martin, and more.
