Drogon got a lot of love in his big battle debut on Game of Thrones, and that may be why one actor in the series is getting some hate following his appearance on the latest episode. Bronn actor Jerome Flynn says he has apparently ticked some fans off after the arrow he shot found its way into the dragon's shoulder, even though it was his character and not him that did it. Flynn shares his reaction to the scene, as well as its impact on his personal life in the quote below:
I was surprised when I was watching it. I spent weeks on that sequence, but I was on the edge of my seat, the adrenaline was running --- they really nailed it. Although since the day the battle aired, I've been a little unpopular, I have to say. My postman won't speak to me because I shot the dragon.
Who would've thought the same man who plays the gruff Bronn would have a friendly relationship with the guy that delivers his mail? In any case, there's no denying Jerome Flynn lost some love from the Game Of Thrones community as fans have began to wonder if the injury might spell the end of the mighty dragon. Drogon love aside, perhaps Flynn's postman can find it in his heart to forgive him, considering there was no actual dragon there to shoot when they did the scene?
While the dragon was fake, the weapon used to shoot it was very real. Jerome Flynn tells Making Game Of Thrones that Qyburn's weapon is an actual weapon that was constructed by armorers who work for the series. As it was an actual weapon, Flynn had to undergo training for it in order to do the sequence on screen, and yes, actually shoot an arrow from it. Flynn also adds that it was the "coolest weapon," he'll probably get to interact with, which could put a big question mark on Bronn's fate following that dramatic ending. Hopefully, if he made that jump to save Jaime from Drogon, it wasn't fatal, as he more than hustled for all that wealth he had coming his way.
Fans presumably won't have to wait long to learn of Jaime and Bronn's fate as Game Of Thrones is all new August 13th at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. Whittle down the next couple days of waiting by arguing about whether or not Lady Stoneheart made an appearance in the latest episode, or think about a big change in the book series that the show recently addressed.
