Access Hollywood caught up with Pedro on the red carpet at the SAG awards, where he teased his character.
“He’s a prince who doesn’t play by the rules," Pedro explained. "He is from the land of Dorne and he comes to King’s Landing to stir things up, and he has a really specific agenda and he really doesn’t care what people think or also doesn’t care what consequence he might meet. You know, he doesn’t give a [expletive].” Sounds like a character we’ll like!
When it comes to the Red Viper’s love life, Pedro says, “He gets around. He’s a lover and a fighter, he’s both.” Sounds like we can expect Pedro to be mixing it up with all sorts of characters.
Finally, Pedro gives a brief review of Season 4 on a whole, saying, “It’s pretty massive ... You’re gonna ‘effin love it.”
You had us at “effin,” Pedro.
