Game of Thrones Star Aidan Gillen on Littlefinger’s Motives and Spin-Off With Varys?!
Littlefinger had a big coming out party onGame of Thrones last week, as in he came out as a major force to be reckoned with on the show. During a recent interview with star Aidan Gillen, Rolling Stone asked about Littlefinger’s intentions. Gillen revealed, “Littlefinger can be kind of frightening... his ambition is second to none, and there’s a certain ruthlessness there.” Yikes, he can say that again. Just ask Ros.
Aidan also gave some insight into how Littlefinger has managed to climb so high in the game: “I am a brothel keeper... and that's a perfect position to hold for someone playing the game I'm playing. As we all know, sex can topple a government. Things are seen and heard in these rooms – clients can be at their most vulnerable.” So that’s how he’s always one step ahead of everyone. Maybe Varys should invest in some brothels.
Speaking of Varys, Aidan touched on the possibility of a Varys and Littlefinger spin-off (which would be amazing): “Like one where I nail him into a crate and transport him around on the back of a cart for eternity? Every now and then I could throw him a piece of Turkish delight.”
Wow, it’s hard to tell if Aidan gave that answer or if it was Littlefinger himself! We hope that if a spin off ever does happen, the two would interact with each other a little more than that!
