Re: Game of Thrones comic book series
That scene with him talking to Jorah about staying with the Horde to make sure Drogo keeps up his end of the bargain, that bit with him in the tub with Doreah, that bit with him and Jorah talking during Dany's "Eat the heart" ceremony and that whole "Who can rule without wealth or fear or love?" scene with Jorah.
Those were all inventions of the show, and combined with Harry Lloyds' superb acting, served to humanize Viserys more than the book did. He was still the unsympathetic lunatic, but not clearly the obstacle for Dany that he was in the book.
I never felt that humanized Viserys at all. He's still portrayed as an unsympathetic jerk in both formats.
Sanity calms but madness is more interesting.
