“Bodyguard” and “Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden covers the December 2018/January 2019 issue of British GQ Magazine photographed by Matthew Brookes.
On how physically and mentally demanding playing Budd on “Bodyguard” was for him: “I finished ‘Bodyguard’ and didn’t want to act again. It had taken so much out of me physically, mentally and personally […] You didn’t get a day off. My character doesn’t get a second off. It took more out of me than anything else I’ve done.”
On being mentioned to play James Bond: “Lovely. I’m more than flattered to be mentioned, for people to consider putting me in that role. I’m very flattered and thankful. It’s a really brilliant thing to be in.” […] “I don’t want to curse anything by saying anything. I think that’s the curse of that. If you talk about it, you’ll curse it.”
