Robb Stark arguably suffered one of the most gruesome deaths in “Game of Thrones” history. After (spoiler alert) watching his pregnant wife be stabbed to death and his army brought down in a single room, Stark himself met his fate when he too was stabbed in the gut. Which really, makes it totally understandable that the actor behind the role, Richard Madden, cried the entire way home following the filming.

In a new interview with GQ, Madden revealed that he was overwhelmed with his final scene. In fact, he was overcome at having to watch the scene again as part of the interview, he told GQ, “I think it’s really rude you made me watch this.”

While re-watching the scene, Madden became a bit emotional, sharing second-by-second details. He even revealed that after filming the grueling final death, he had to immediately hop on a plane back to London. He didn’t even have time to wash the fake blood from his hands.

On the flight back, Madden said: “I remember being on this flight back to London, covered in fake blood, exhausted and just sobbing,” he said in the video. “It looks like I just murdered someone and got on a flight. Which, in fact, I hadn’t. I’d been murdered.”

People around him started to also catch on to his odd behavior and bloody appearance and a cabin crew member even approached him to ask if he was OK.

“And then people moved and the rows behind me moved. I was sobbing and covered in blood. I looked like I’d murdered someone and got on that flight,” he said.

If those lucky fellow passengers knew they were actually flying with the true King of North they’d be totally OK with his less than desirable flight antics.
