Anticipation is building for the return of HBO's "Game of Thrones," with the season 3 trailer released just last week giving fans a glimpse at what's to come.
With the return of the fantasy series comes the return of one of television's great bromances: that of the shrewd Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and his right hand man Bronn (Jerome Flynn). Flynn spoke with Access Hollywood recently about what the new season will mean to his character.
The series' third season finds Bronn remaining on as a guard for the King, but increasingly under the evil Joffrey's direction and less so his old friend Tyrion. "[Bronn] is just about sticking it with Tyrion," Flynn said. "He's getting a bit frustrated, underpaid."
After the thrilling events of the Battle of Blackwater, Flynn teased that his character will not see quite the same level of power as he had when his diminutive compatriot was The Hand of the King. "He's not got the position he had, but there's still love between [Tyrion and Bronn]. And some good... some nice scenes together, but not much," the actor said.
Even though the popular George R.R. Martin books feature little of Bronn in the forthcoming season, Flynn credits the writers on the series for keeping him in the loop. "The writers - Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff], they also produced it... they've been great because they've given me bits - even though there's not much in the books - they keep me, keep Bronn ticking along," he said.
The new season of "Game of Thrones" begins March 31st on HBO. What are you most looking forward to?
