Iain Glen talks book-to-screen changes and Jorah Mormont’s longevity

Jorah Mormont has spent the last six years of Game of Thrones wandering Essos in pursuit of the unrequited love-of-his-life Daenerys Targaryen.

Jorah-Mormont-2-630x419 

But when he’s not at the Mother of Dragons’ beck and call, actor Iain Glen has kept himself busy. While working on Thrones, Glen has simultaneously acted in a series of TV movies based on Ken Bruen’s Jack Taylor novels. Glen plays the title character, who Stuff describes as a “disgraced cop-turned-private detective” who “investigates those cases that other people, including the police, won’t investigate.” It sounds like Glen has quite the handle on the whole “disgraced but nevertheless honorable working man” thing.

Between Thrones and Jack Taylor, Glen has experience appearing in literary adaptations, although he acknowledges he doesn’t always physically resemble the characters as described in the books. As he tells it, that’s certainly the case with Jorah:

I don’t think I bear any physical resemblance whatsoever to the character that George R.R. Martin described in the books on which the series is based. I think he was a very dark-haired, wiry man with an ugly face–I’m not saying I don’t have an ugly face–and I think quite short and stocky […] But they probably thought it would be good if you could see why [Jorah and Daenerys] might get it together. If you had an ugly stump of a man who had no chance whatsoever and was fairly repellent then it would be harder for them to tell that story.

Iain Glen’s Jack Taylor Is the Perfect Fix for Your Game of Thrones Withdrawal

The Thrones star also weighs in on whether Ser Jorah will ever get a change of clothes.

For the last seven years, Scottish actor Iain Glen has spent a good portion of his time filming one of the biggest shows on the planet, Game of Thrones, in Ireland. When he’s out and about in Belfast, he’s the steadfast Ser Jorah Mormont. But a few hours drive away down on the coast of Galway Bay, they call Glen by a different name. “I can’t really go out and walk the streets without getting a lot of attention as being Jack Taylor,” Glen told VF.com over the phone. “That’s who they think I am, in very sweet, very supportive way.”

iain-glen-jack-taylor

Jack Taylor is the hard-drinking, Irish private investigator hero of the books by Ken Bruen, and the lead of a series of nine hour and a half TV crime thrillers of the same name. In Taylor—a former officer of Irish Garda Síochána and something of a ladies man—Glen gets to bring the full force of his charm out from behind the layers of repression he plays on Game of Thrones. In fact, through a quirk of European TV’s laissez-faire approach to scheduling, Glen actually appeared in his first Jack Taylor episode back in 2010, before he ever picked a sword on Thrones. And now, all nine episodes—including the third season, which just aired in the U.K. last fall—are finally available for Glen’s American fans on Acorn TV. Talk about methadone for your Thrones withdrawal. The actor spoke with VF.com about the lure of crime thrillers, why Jack Taylor has more success with the ladies than Jorah, and whether we’ll ever see poor Ser Mormont change out of that nasty, filthy shirt from Season 1.

V.F. HWD: I heard that you’re a life-long crime thriller fan. What about that genre appeals to you?

Iain Glen: All that crime does is just give you a structure to your story in a very simple sense—a very strong beginning, middle, and end. Within that, you’re just telling stories. It can have romance, comedy, whatever you like. I suppose I think it’s a liberating milieu. There’s been a rich vein of Scandinavian drama, The Killing or The Bridge; through those, I feel like I’ve got to know Sweden a bit and Norway a bit. You get to know the politics of the place, the people, relationships. You sort of discover a society through it.

There’s a great deal that is quintessentially Irish. There’s a strong obsession with religion and Catholicism within Ireland, which has done lots of good things and lots of bad things. The Irish boom and bust business—they made hay, and then it all went pear-shaped—means Jack is always deeply suspicious of business and those that are making money out of the community. Obviously you’ve got beautiful coastal Galway, but it’s a paradox in some ways—it’s a very beautiful coastline and city center, but there are problems. It’s got one of the highest suicide rates in Ireland. There’s a big youth population and quite a lot of drug culture there. There’s a dark underbelly to it.

One of the things I like about Jack Taylor is I do think you get to know a community. You get to know Jack, his family, his mother, his difficult relationship with his mother, the people he falls in and falls out of love with. There’s a kind of claustrophobia, which is very true of that part of Ireland. We know it. It’s very funny. When we film there, I can’t really go out and walk the streets without getting a lot of attention as being Jack Taylor. That’s who they think I am in very sweet, very supportive way.

Ah, Jack Taylor and his coat. The producers were a little bit wary to begin with because it covers everything. But like a dialect, I think it certainly helps me as an actor. In a single statement, it tells you that he used to be Garda. He’s ex-police, and he’s still fucking with them, really. He’s upsetting them by wearing the coat, and they constantly want it back and they’re never going to get it.

Meanwhile, poor Jorah would probably kill for that coat—he’s been stuck in pretty much the same costume since Season 

They found it for me, a costume that just felt right. I don’t know. It just felt like it belonged and belonged to him.

But every year it gets dirtier and dingier and more threadbare. I’m worried that by the end, Jorah will just be wearing scraps.

I think Jorah just needs to land in a safer place, and then he’ll have time to change his clothing. Get cleaned up a little.

You’ve actually been Jack longer than you’ve been Jorah. I think it’s hard sometimes for American audiences to understand that you can shoot nine installments of a story over seven years.

It’s been a frustration, sometime, but I am entirely, or at least to some degree, responsible for the time it’s taken to put together because I need to be very available for it. Because of other commitments, that’s been quite difficult. But you try and keep a continuity thread. We hope to make six more as soon as we can, and I think somehow in that feature format, that hour and a half rather than an hour, I think you get away with more time between them somehow. But there are so many different platforms now for TV in a way that it’s been such a radical change. Now when it hits Acorn, people who never saw the first ones can watch it all at once. Hopefully, if we’ve done it right, you don’t feel the time it’s taken for us to put it together. Maybe I look ancient in the last one and I look young and youthful in the first. I have no idea.

I know a lot of people who watch you on Thrones are rooting for Ser Jorah to get the girl—any girl! Do you think they’ll be happy to see that Jack Taylor isn’t all about unrequited affection?

Yeah, it’s sweet, the fan reactions. I think that they wish Jorah well, and I think they wish he would—that he deserves physical love in return or something. I don’t know. I mean, the male fans react a little differently. But there is a certain female fan where maybe they see themselves in the story, and as long as you’re failing as Jorah, you’re maybe still more available for them in a funny way. Jack is a polar opposite in that he will get himself into terrible sexual pickles all the time, and is always doing very inappropriate things like having sex with the major suspect and that sort of stuff. He goes there without thinking and then ponders it afterwards, and Jorah ponders it too much, I think. Not that Jorah’s ever going to get it. Well, he might. Who knows?

Do you have any general words of optimism or hope for Jorah fans who are quite worried about that spreading stony rash on his arm?

Why Dawn French’s New Drama Is Delicious!

IAIN GLEN

Delbehtscenes-12017-01-31-20h55m 

Plays Sam’s husband, Leo. Iain, 55, lives with his partner, actress Charlotte Emmerson, and their two daughters, Mary, nine, and Juliet, four, in London.

Leo’s a charming rogue. He’s very loving and a good father, but he’s selfish. There’s not a malicious bone in his body but he’s like a lot of men, I think; he doesn’t think about what he’s doing when he’s doing it and what the consequences might be. Viewers will hopefully like him, but perhaps not everything he does.

Unlike Leo, I’m not profoundly unfaithful! But I think I’m quite a sensual person, and I certainly enjoy the good things in life; good food, good wine, and I’m madly in love with the person I’m with. So I do relate to that.

Sam and Leo’s relationship is a good one. People assume that if someone is unfaithful there must be something wrong. But that’s often not the case. People are unfaithful for any number of reasons and, especially for men, it’s not always a reflection on the relationship. Sam and Leo have been together for a long time, so I think all that’s happened is that their relationship has plateaued. For them, it’s a case of opposites attract – Sam’s very organised and Leo’s more chaotic, while his relationship with Dawn’s character is one of similarities attract.

Emilia and I were friends already but it was the first time I’d worked with Dawn. Everyone told me what a gorgeous lady she is and they were right. She’s great fun, talkative, very open and cares about everyone on the set. We hung out a lot during the day chatting about everything.

I’m definitely not a natural cook like Leo. I’m good at following recipes but I have no flair or instinct. When it comes to a role, the trick is to do whatever you’re required to do within the scene and not think about anything else, so for Delicious I became an expert at chopping and whisking!

Delicious was a dream job. It was summer, it was Cornwall, I was eating great food and pretending to make love. It felt like a ridiculously good way to earn a living.
