Interviewer: How do you think the death of Renly affected Loras and his personality?
Finn Jones: I think he's very unsure, so he's making very rash decisions. He's pretty lost, but he's got so much pride he doesn't want to face up with how damaged he is from Renly's death. So I think he puts on a lot of front. He doesn't really have anyone else to attach himself to. He's been so attached to Renly all his life, and now he's gone. So I guess he's attaching himself to his family, but his family is screwing him over massively by just marrying him off to various different people. So I guess he's very lost, he's damaged, but he's putting on a front, so it's not very much showing on the surface.
Interviewer: So you think that he's still grieving for Renly?
Finn Jones: Oh yeah, massively, of course! Big time, big time. But... you know... grief isn't always something that is outwardly shown. A lot of people carry grief for years and years, and their friends and family never know about it, and I think that's the case with Loras. Yeah, he's definitely still grieving. But I think he's beyond grieving-- he's irrational, he doesn't know what... what he's doing. He's like a timebomb.
