“No, no, I didn’t [know about it at the time of audition]. It was very ambiguous. I just put a tape together. The chance to audition to be on the show was a dream, even to audition. It was an absolute dream to me. I was very excited to audition, and landing the role was beyond my wildest dreams. Then when I found out the role was Ned, I was just…it was overwhelming. It was huge.”

We saw that Arthur Dayne was stabbed in the back by Howland Reed and Bran Stark acting surprised by the turn of events. Does this question Ned’s honor? Aramayo thinks so:

“It does question his honor. It’s heartbreaking to him for Arthur Dayne to leave this world in such a dishonorable way. I think it’s probably incredibly impacting on Ned’s development as a man in the coming years.”

And what did Ned Stark hear when Bran called his name? Like Jon Snow, Aramayo knows nothing:

“I don’t know, man… It’s a tricky one to answer. I don’t know that I want to give definition to what I think was going on in the moment. He heard something, didn’t he? Who knows what he heard. That’s all I’ll say.”
