Did you just say it's not possible to abhor a character any more than what you think of Jeoffrey in Game of Thrones? Perhaps, you could now add Ramsay Snow/Bolton to this rogue's list.
Such is the hatred that's whipped up for him that even Iwan Rheon, the actor who plays the bastard of Roose Bolton, wants him to die the most 'horrid and brutal death'.
Rheon made this scathing admission in an interview with walesonline.co.uk after the very controversial wedding night/rape scene with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark). "Of all the terrible things Ramsey's done -- and there have been loads -- that was by far the hardest to shoot," he said.
"It was a horrible, horrendous thing to do, and I remember having a little moment in my trailer beforehand. I was like, 'I'm not sure I can do this; actually , I really don't want to do this' - I was struggling, to be honest. But, in the end , I just had to pick myself up and get on with the job at hand - we both did, me and Sophie. After all, this sort of thing goes on in the world all the time - it's our duty as actors to try and portray such things as truthfully as possible," Rheon was quoted as saying.
He added, "There's absolutely nothing redeemable about Ramsey which is crazy really, because surely everyone has at least one good point. He's just bad to the bone - be it by nature or nurture. After all he's the illegitimate son of a lord and has always resented his lowly status, along with the fact that he's struggled to win acceptance from his father. But that's no excuse for how he is - he's just been left to his own devices for far, far too long."
Iwan didn't stop at it and added that he'd like to see Ramsey meet a spectacular end. "It could happen at any time, that's the nature of the show - no one's really safe. That said, I've just bought a flat in London so I hope that day doesn't come too soon," he laughs.
"But that day is definitely coming, no mistake about it - and I hope that when it does it's epically nasty, and preferably dragon-related. He needs to go out with the bang. God knows I don't want him to become a White Walker," says Iwan. "I'd hate to become a bloody zombie after all this," he said.
