In a recent interview on 14th August 2017, with The New York Times, Aidan Gillen talked about his role as ‘Littlefinger” of GOT. When asked about why he is evil in the show, Aidan said:
It’s pathological. I’m not trying to play him as a complete villain, really, although he had his hand in many of the more treacherous acts or events we’ve seen over seven seasons. Most of them, in fact
Aidan also discussed Littlefinger’s plans for the Starks family and his interest in Sansa in the show. “Does Littlefinger’s plan involve him on the Iron Throne with Sansa on his side?” As the answer, Aidan divulged:
Yeah, maybe. I don’t imagine that was to be taken literally. It was intended to be taken literally by Sansa. But with this character he’ll say something and mean something else. It wasn’t far off the mark.
There is an exciting role of Littlefinger in the show. He is planning on dividing the two sisters apart: Sansa and Arya. He also seems to have a physical affection for Sansa in the series.
