In Game of Thrones TV series, Tywin Lannister is the villain. He is the most powerful lord in Westeros, the head of House Lannister, Lord of Casterly Rock, Shield of Lannisport and Warden of the West. He is ruthless, intelligent and elegant (the devil can also be elegant), and treats his children mercilessly.

Tywin Lannister has three children. Jaime, Cersei, and Tyrion. Tywin blames particularly Tyrion for causing his beloved wife death during his birth, and for shaming the family name with his deformity.

In Game of Thrones TV series, English actor Charles Dance is playing the role as Tywin Lannister. In fact, Charles Dance typically plays assertive bureaucrats or villains. Don’t you remember Dr. Jonathan Clemens in Alien 3 (1992), or Sardo Numspa in The Golden Child (1986)?

Sometimes people confuse the actor with the character. Some weeks ago, Lena Headey was insulted a cause of her role as Cersei Lannister. However, Lena is a nice woman, very different from Cersei. How about Charles Dance? How about his personality? Today, listen to him.

Inspirational quotes by Charles Dance (actor, screenwriter, and film director):

Attentive: It’s a question of keeping one’s eyes and ears open and watching how other people play the game. They’re watching me too, to see what my attitude is like.

Grateful: A car to pick me up every day, a chair with my name on it, everybody being very polite… what can you do except sit back and watch it all, try to take it all in?

Hesitant: Your senses are reeling all the time. Finally you find something to write and the very next day you go out and see something else which totally contradicts what you’ve written and every conclusion you’ve come to.

Ironic: We had five goats, two dogs, a cat and racks of commentaries on Shakespeare.

And above all, an actor: If I talk about Charles Dance I am talking about something else, something I operate and wind up and have to make an impression with and use to transmit someone else’s screenplay.
