Pedro Pascal On Last Night's Brutal Ep Of GAME OF THRONES

Well, the Viper and The Mountain finally met in the arena on Game Of Thrones last night, and Tyrion's trial by combat is over. If you've seen the ep you know the outcome and might want to hear Pascal's (Prince Oberyn) thoughts on how it all went down. If not, don't click!

Obviously if you haven't watched last night's Game Of Thrones, massive SPOILER warning!

So the Viper (Oberyn Martell) managed to defeat the Mountain (Gregor Clegane) in the arena after a long, brutal fight..but his arrogance and insistence on prolonging his enemy's torture resulted in him being knocked off his feet, and having his head smashed in! It was a twist I don't think anyone that hasn't read the books saw coming, as we only met Oberyn this season and one of the most popular character's life also hung in the balance if he lost. While speaking to Access Hollywood, Pedro Pascal reveals his love for the character and why he'll miss playing him so much.

Prince Oberyn serves as Tyrion's champion
“It’s awful. It’s heartbreaking. I love the character. I fell in love with the character and maybe that helped me play him. The first thing that helped me identify with him was actually a love for him. I found him very delicious. I also found him very, very honorable and very progressive and just an all-around badass, not because he’s a great fighter and because he likes to f*** everything that moves, but because he has morals that I identify with. So it was always very hard for me to kind of like, detach myself from my own heartbreak that the character goes out the way that he goes out.”

We know Oberyn is dead now, but if there was ever an opportunity to revisit the character's backstory in a movie or spin-off series, Pascal would be more than happy to jump on board. “I mean, really, do you have to ask?” He laughs. “Anything to take me out of mourning.” More at the link below.
