"Alfie: No, weirdly enough he helped me out with an audition yesterday, so we kind of have been doing acting together, but not “Game of Thrones.” So that was kind of cool… It’s just funny ‘cause you said I don’t have to act with him and yesterday I did an audition and he had to play a 45-year-old woman and I was a 25-year-old love interest. It was quite funny to… audition like that together… Quite funny — and awkward at times — but we got over it. He’s just a really nice fellow and we get along. I’m sure if we were doing scenes together we’d still sort of hang out anyway, but the whole cast is just great and there’s not one bad egg in there. Everyone is lovely. I know it sounds cheesy and cliche, but it really is like a big family on set."
