Finn Jones Quotes.
When I was in drama school, I really got into a dark place. I went to a therapist – it was really helpful to have that dialogue with someone. So I understand anxiety.
The power should be in individual democracies in individual communities. It shouldn’t be an oligarchy or some small group of elite. Power should be with the people and not with some politician or some heir to the throne or some madman.
I worked on ‘Game Of Thrones’ for six years, so I’m very well equipped to handle hype surrounding television shows.
I respect Marvel as a company, and I think they’re great, but never in my life have I looked up to being a superhero.

I will say that Marvel is 100 times more secretive than ‘Game of Thrones.’ Like, they’re not even on the same playing field.
At first, I didn’t know what an actor was. I thought it was an acrobat. I saw acrobats at the circus, and I thought that was interesting. In my head, that was what I imagined I wanted to be when I grew up. Then I realized what an actor was, and I’ve gravitated to it ever since.

I know feeling pressure gets you nowhere creatively. You’ve just got to understand the character, understand the story, and just play it to the fullest extent.
For me as an actor, I find it’s most creative when I’m bringing myself into the role rather than putting the role on. I feel like it’s more of a cathartic experience.

Pretty much everyone on my iPod, I’d like to be friends with. But I’d say that the main two that I’d love to get into a conversation with are Werner Herzog and Graham Hancock.
There’s nothing interesting about seeing our characters for an hour and a half do some flashy flying in the sky and beating up on some buildings. It’s boring, and people don’t want that anymore. They want character, and they want story.
