“Makes me feel like a boss, if I’m actually up there and if I’m in the top three, I mean then like everything after is a bit futile,” he told Esquire. “It’s like, what am I doing? Why am I still trying? I did it.”
Pedro went on to say he considers himself lucky to have even gotten the role given his audition, which showrunner David Benioff called “amateurish” in an interview with Variety.
“It’s true, I had my friend tape me with my iPhone,” he said in his Esquire interview. “They sent me like 20 something pages to do which obviously in the time that they wanted the tape to be turned in I wasn’t going to be able to memorize all those lines.”
“The easiest way was for somebody to sit in front of you with an iPhone and then just kind of like have the pages down here and read it casually, and the suckers fell for it. Is that my fault? No, it’s theirs,” he added.
