RICHARD MADDEN :: The Thrones star talks stunts, working with Idris Elba and training to be a pickpocket

How did you prepare to play a thief?
I practised a lot because we tried to make it all as believable as possible. I said to James [Watkins, director] when we first met: “It can’t just be magic. Anything I steal in the movie, any sleight of hand things I do, I want to actually do it.”

Describe your character…
He’s a street rat, a lone wolf type, but he’s got a wit and a comedy and a fastness about him. The character you see 10 scenes deep into the film is a very different to when you first see him. And then, 30 scenes into the film, you’re seeing someone different again.

How did you cope with the action scenes?
I did a lot of training. For about six weeks I’d go to a big studio in Ealing, and every day there’d be platforms 15 feet high on different levels and I’d be chased on them. So I’d be jumping, running, swinging, diving under things, kicking down things, punching people…

How has it been working with Idris?
On the first few days on set, we were doing a scene in a car and I just started to fuck about, improvising between takes, and then I’m improvising during the takes and we started to have this really great rapport. We finished that and thought, “If the film’s like this, then we could have something really good on our hands”.

How does this differ from your previous roles?
It’s good to be out of period clothes. It’s really good to not be on a horse. It’s really great to just be playing a modern part. It’s much harder to improvise with period language. When it’s modern, we can play and we’re constantly working to try to make it really interesting. ML
