Q: Some people theorize that since the whole book series is called “A Song of Ice and Fire,” Jon is ice and Dany is fire, so it’s ultimately all about your characters.
A: Well, my ego would love that! [Laughs] Would that mean Jon becomes my lover? I would love for that to be the case!
There are a lot of fans who love the idea of Jon and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) together, but they’ve never even met. Would you want to have some screen time with Dany?
I would love it, but I don’t quite think it’s going to happen. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be with Daenerys, right? I’d always had it in my head that they’ll meet one day. I think it would be really exciting if they did. “A Song of Ice and Fire” is what the whole series is called, and Jon seems to be in the icy part, and Daenerys is in the fire, so it seems like it may happen.
her lover was always younger and more comely, though his face remained a shifting shadow.
