Picture a blood-soaked Robb Stark crying in the airplane seat next to you, because that actually happened

November 30, 2018

If you dislike goodbyes so much that you avoid them at all costs, then you will relate bigtime to Robb Stark actor, Richard Madden.

When he finished filming Game of Thrones, he left. No goodbyes, no high-fives, no cast party. He took off so fast he didn't even change out of his wardrobe. But once he was on the plane he could not contain the swell of emotion within him.

“I just wanted to leave. I just wanted to get out....“I sobbed and sobbed on that Friday. I was hysterical actually. I was so exhausted. I cried all the way home. The air stewardess kept asking if I was OK. And then people moved and the rows behind me moved. I was sobbing and covered in blood. I looked like I’d murdered someone and got on that flight. ... I just don’t like saying goodbye. I don’t like things being over. I never have. And Thrones was such a big closing chapter in my life.”

Pretty sure if you or I had been on that flight we would have offered him a shoulder to cry on, but everyone is different. Just goes to show there's really no way of escaping your difficult emotions, no matter how hard you try.

It's a good read if you're interested in the full GQ interview .Rumors are swirling about Richard being the next James Bond, but if, like me, you've already got your heart set on Idris Elba we're going to be disappointed with whoever it is.
