-Sam, you played Wylis, the Young Hodor, in Game of Thrones. How did you get the role?


I went up for an audition and they liked me so they gave me a part.



-Did you watch Game of Thrones before you got cast or read the Novel´s?


I watched the show but I had only just started reading the books


- You played the scene many fans are waiting for. why Hodor is Hodor. How much has this moment in Game of Thrones changed your life?


Its been a weird experience. People now shout "Hold the door" at me in the street. But I am so grateful for the opportunity to play the part and I will continue to work hard at my craft.

I had to have a 20 minute session with the stunt guy just to learn how to fall over.

Yes, I write poetry and songs.

In some respects, though I still had to audition.

It is a really sweet horror movie, lots of scary moments and blood but also some quiet, serene moments.

Fans make a show like GOT possible, for that I and all the cast must be forever grateful.
