Nonso Anozie talks Xaro Xhoan Daxos, Purple Wedding, & The Wire’s Omar

At the recent Collectormania event in Milton Keynes, Flicks And The City had a lovely chat with actor Nonso Anozie, who Game of Thrones fans will recognise from season 2 as Qarth’s influential merchant Xaro Xhoan Daxos who was being locked in a vault by Daenerys Targaryen last time we saw him.

As well as telling us about filming Disney’s new live-action Cinderella movie and director Joe Wright’s movie Pan with Hugh Jackman, Nonso also told us all about his experiences making Game of Thrones.

Check out our video to see Nonso chat to us about how good his character Xaro is at holding his breath, creating Xaro for the TV show compared to the George RR Martin’s books, how much he’d like his character to return to the show, meeting Michael K Williams who played Omar in The Wire, what he’d like Xaro do if he returned, his reaction to Joffrey’s death in season 4, Joffrey’s stand-out moments, his favourite moments for Charles Dance as Tywin Lannister, what he thinks of the possibility of a Game of Thrones movie, what qualities you need to survive in Game of Thrones, who he’d like to see on the Iron Throne, and what it was like working with Emilia Clarke.
