Inish Times Meets Art Parkinson

The Inish Times has a cute profile of young Art Parkinson, recently revealed to be cast in the role of Rickon Stark, the youngest of the Stark children. Art, 8 years old, was apparently chosen after a massive (and unsuccessful) effort across Ireland, England, and Scotland to find just the right actor for Rickon. According to his mother, actress and drama school teacher Movania Parkinson:

“I’m an actress so I’d know a lot of people and friend of mine told me about how the team behind ‘Game of Thrones’ were looking for a Rickon Stark and couldn’t find him. She said she was surprised we hadn’t put Art up for audition so we did. He did a screen test on the Friday, met with the producers on the Monday. He met with Brendan Gunn, the voice coach who is also a native Irish man and he was asked to do the same reading as he had previously done. The next thing we knew they said ‘Congratulations, you’ve got the part.’
