'Game of Thrones' Aidan Gillen on the return of Littlefinger
Janill Gilbert stashed this in Game of Thrones
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So this is probably the biggest season yet for your character. Can you tease what we can expect?
Aidan Gillen: For me the season is about developing more of a parental and surrogate parental side — the sweeter side of Littlefinger comes through, as well. I’m off on my travels and laying plans. He’s always laying plans, [this is one of his] meticulous and far-reaching plans, geographically and generationally, even. So it’s quite interesting. Am I being cryptic enough?
We do know Littlefinger has rescued/abducted Sansa. What is it about Sansa that he finds so alluring — Baelish has always seemed material minded in the past and not really romantic.
Gillen: Well, there’s the obvious. The obvious connection of Sansa being Eddard Stark’s daughter. There’s also somebody there who holds some intrigue. I feel I can teach her, and take her under my wing. But I have a feeling she may have her own agenda.
Stashed in: Game of Thrones!
Littlefinger is one of the most interesting characters on the show.
I'm glad he's back -- and I wonder where they're going with this!
