"I went home to my country after I graduated. I thought I was going to be a change agent. Things were so corrupt there, that you had to pay a bribe to even get a driver’s license. I set up community organizations. I thought if people had information, and knowledge, the culture would change. But nothing changed. It’s so hard to build a democracy in a country with no history of democracy. Nobody cared about changing the country. They only wanted to enrich themselves. ‘Everyone has to eat,’ they would say."
I think people like [Game of Thrones] because people actually respond to not being treated like idiots. It’s a really complex story, and it’s very hard to follow, and people love working that puzzle out. And I mean essentially why I think people like it is it’s a rollicking good story with sex and violence. - Kit Harington (photo by Chris Floyd)
