Now Entering Russ's World
The HBO hit television series ‘Game of Thrones’ is a true ensemble piece in every sense of the word. HBO has always been great at putting together these huge programs that demand deep and talented casts: ‘The Wire’, ‘Sopranos’, ‘Deadwood’. So to see ‘Game of Thrones’ do the same thing, well, we are just not surprised. Out of all the characters there are many different fan favorites. Guys like Tyrion Lannister and Jon Snow probably sell the most t-shirts while Danaerys is the most beloved character on the show, probably, thanks to the stunning Emilia Clarke and her nuanced portrayal. But behind all of those other glitzy characters there is a broiling presence that runs through it all, Iain Glen as Jorah Mormont.
As this year’s season winds to an end we have come to realize that Jorah Mormont is one of the most prized characters on the show, and Glen’s portrayal a revelation.
