How would you describe yourself and where you are in your career?

I guess my career has been pretty extraordinary. Until this point, I’ve never really had a direction and I’ve allowed myself to be pulled through this industry. As a person, I’d say I’m a control freak so from here on I see myself having a clear plan and goal.

What achievement are you most proud of so far?

To be recognised by the Academy [of Television Arts & Sciences] for my role in Game of Thrones is something that I’m really proud of.

What does it mean to be successful today?

Success is a positive mental attitude. You take from the world what you put in; I’m currently manifesting my happiness and success.

What’s the main thing you’ve learnt from success?

Success is entirely personal – it’s never about the status which comes with the work that you’ve achieved. It’s always about the way you feel about the work you’ve achieved, and if you’re doing something which you find unfulfilling you’ll never see it as success.

What’s left for you to achieve? What other achievements are you striving for?

Too many to count. I want to direct and produce; I see art and creativity as fluid, so I’m interested in pushing the boundaries of what film and television can be.

At what point did you realise you wanted to use your celebrity status towards something bigger, grander and more personal?
