Looks fa­mil­iar

The TV Guide - - GAME OF THRONES -

Ac­tor Ai­dan Gillen (above) knew ex­actly the look he wanted for his Game Of Thrones char­ac­ter, Lord Pe­tyr ‘Lit­tlefin­ger’ Bael­ish.

He mod­elled the master ma­nip­u­la­tor on Peter Man­del­son (right), the Bri­tish Labour politi­cian nick­named The Prince Of Dark­ness for his work as the party’s spin-doc­tor.

“There was a pho­to­graph I had of him from mag­a­zines from about 1984 and I brought it in on our first week when we were do­ing cos­tume and wardrobe, make-up, try­ing to find what­ever the look would be, and I think what was sug­gested to me ini­tially was quite dif­fer­ent,” says Gillen.

“I did want a look that stood out be­cause I thought this guy is quite metic­u­lous and neat and pre­cise. He (Man­del­son) had the nick­name Prince Of Dark­ness as well which seemed to fit.”
