FAULT 20 has hit the shelves and we can now preview shots from our interview with Iwan Rheon!  We’re half expecting him to slither up to the table and eyeball us with a disjointed grin on his face. Instead, Welsh actor Iwan Rheon, the man behind Ramsay Snow, swaggers up in a leather jacket and sunglasses and flashes a ‘cheeky chappy’ .

Ian McKellen’s ‘Vicious’ co-star is developing a dark streak in his work. FAULT digs deeper with Iwan Rheon on the unusual inspiration behind ‘Game of Thrones’ most twisted villain and a strange fairy tale film coming soon.

 

Ramsay Snow is a really nasty piece of work. How do you get into the mind-set of someone like that?

It’s actually quite helpful I think because they’re having such a wonderful time. The first time I remember thinking, ‘What’s this going to be like?’ I was standing backstage ready to go on and then I could hear the warm reception that Derek [Jacobi] and Ian [McKellen] were getting so I thought, ‘Oh this is going to be fine.’ You go out and everything falls into place. The audience love it because they never get to see great actors like Ian and Derek and Frances [de la Tour] mess up. They absolutely love it and that gives you that warm feeling that you’
