Re: A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones Spoiler-Filled Discussion

If you look back at the Vulture interview with Bean in which he made the comments we're discussing, he notes how Ned's behavior toward/about Jon could be dramatically justified whether Jon is his son or not. Exactly because the TV series is leaving it as an open question, and given that there are all of two scenes where it comes up, it would have been perfectly possible to tell Bean what Ned's attitude, is but not precisely why it exists, without noticeably affecting the result. But I suppose my belief that Bean invariably gives a stiff, barely-adequate performance no matter the background may be a factor here.
