He’s getting a lot of hate over on IMDB. :(
Urgh. I don’t care - there were some people who thought he was fine. There also seems to be this criticism of Emilia Clarke which I don’t get either. This is what I think of his accent:
I wasn’t keen on his accent in season 1. It seemed really, I dunno, posh? Season 2, again, I don’t think I really liked. But then it started to get huskier and more Irish (an Irish person may disagree with me!) and last night’s episode I thought was his best version yet, all dirty, husky and Irish. But, here’s the thing: - surely the makers of the show told him how to speak, they wouldn’t just let an actor in a key role in such an important show as Game of Thrones just start speaking randomly how he wanted without their approval, surely? Aidan is perfectly capable of doing an accent (him in The Wire was excellent as was his Chicago accent in Glengarry Glen Ross). There has to be a reason for the change and I wanna know what it is!
I actually saw someone say he is a bad actor. He’s a respected, award winning performer…their opinions are invalid.
