  • Thanks for being here.

  • This is your very first time here.

  • Very first time on "Ellen."

  • Thank you so much, Ellen.

  • You've spent a lot of time out of the country I bet?

  • Yes.

  • I live in London.

  • Oh, you do?

  • I do.

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • I know you really, mainly, from "Game of Thrones,"

  • as the person who had the little thing--

  • Todger-- todger chopped off, yeah.

  • You had the thing-- yeah.

  • Is that what it's called?

  • Todger.

  • Yeah, that's what we call it.

  • The todger was chopped off.

  • Me todger.

  • Now, when you read the script, and they

  • are going to chop off the "todger," what do

  • you think about that?

  • I mean, I remember when it happened,

  • the read-through came through.

  • And I think there was only read-throughs the first two

  • or three seasons of "Thrones."

  • And then after that, we didn't do them much more.

  • But it was great.

  • I was just happy to be given the opportunity to tackle something

  • so interesting.

  • Right, yes.

  • That's a good way to look at it.

  • Now, what was it like?

  • Did you know any of those people?

  • What was it like when you met that entire cast?

  • It was funny.

  • I think, the first time we all met each other

  • and had a big dinner together was--

  • it was coming up to Halloween, actually, I think.

  • And so I presumed that everybody was going to come dressed--

  • it was the first time we'd all met each other.

  • So I assumed that everybody was going to come

  • dressed in Halloween outfits.

  • So I turned up with these people that I'm

  • going to work for, for about eight years with,

  • dressed as Jason from "Friday the 13th,"

  • with a hockey mask and plastic knife coming out my ribs.

  • I see.

  • They loved me, from day one.

  • Maybe that's when they decided to cut the "todger" off.

  • Maybe, maybe.

  • Yes.

  • Maybe.

  • He's the guy.

  • And you nominated yourself for an Emmy?

  • I did I submitted myself.

  • Yeah, it was crazy.

  • Yeah, it was-- thank you.

  • Thank you so much.

  • One person-- thank you.

  • So yeah, it was rather odd having to--

  • I mean, it was, like, a 10-minute deadline that I

  • had to submit myself for.

  • And so, I think, when I heard about the actual nomination

  • coming through, I was in a shop in the West End.

  • And I thought it was, like, a group nomination

  • for Best Drama or something.

  • And my agent said, no, it's an individual one, for you.

  • See, had you not submitted, you wouldn't have been nominated.

  • Dreams come true, which is great.

  • You made it come true.

  • All right, and you have the cutest little dog.

  • I saw a picture.

  • I was going through all the pictures of your life

  • today, because that's what I do.

  • What's this dog's name?

  • His name is Atta.

  • And I mean, what a beautiful color

  • that little French bulldog is.

  • He's a gorgeous boy.

  • He's a gorgeous boy.

  • He's got the same birthday as my daughter.

  • Oh, really?

  • Yeah.

  • And so how old is your daughter and how old is he?

  • My daughter's one, and he is two.

  • Oh, well happy birthday to both of them.

  • Thank you.

  • And do you celebrate both birthdays,

  • or do you ignore the dog?

  • I ignore the dog.

  • I ignore the dog.

  • And yeah, we just do FaceTimes because he's back in London,

  • and I'm back here.

  • So FaceTimes with the dog for his birthday.

  • He gets a right treat.

  • Does he understand when you're doing FaceTime?

  • Does the dog actually see you on there?

  • Yeah, there's, like, I think they have these--

  • you know, these kind of doggy hotels that they have.

  • And so yeah, I put him up--

  • Oh, that's where you see him.

  • --in one of those.

  • And it's, like, a 24-hour feed.

  • So it's not really a FaceTime.

  • Not really, no.

  • I was kind of exaggerating a bit then.

  • I was making myself look nice.

  • Right, yeah.

  • You're just watching him on a camera, and he's in a room.

  • Yeah, he can hear me though.

  • Right.

  • Yeah.

  • I can't hear him, but he can hear me.

  • Right.

  • Because I've tried to FaceTime with my animals,

  • when I'm here and my animals are in Montecito,

  • and they don't really fully understand.

  • What kind of dogs have you got?

  • What animals have you got?

  • Oh, we've got a lot.

  • I don't have time.

  • OK.

  • But while you're here, there's some available right

  • down the street.

  • I'll tell you about--

  • Amazing.

  • Rescue dogs, yes, lovely.

  • Yes.

  • Lovely.

  • Swing by, because there's a drive-through window.

  • Let's talk about "Jojo Rabbit."

  • It is a very interesting concept.

  • Explain what this is.

  • So it's a story, essentially, about a single mother

  • who's trying to raise her boy in a, kind of, horrific situation.

  • I mean, it's kind of a universal theme--

  • single mothers trying to raise their kids.

  • But this is set against the backdrop of Nazi Germany.

  • And really, it's her son, who's been

  • brainwashed by these people with their crazy political beliefs.

  • And so she tries to show him what it means to be, kind of,

  • human and to empathize and to love-- because that's

  • what makes us human.

  • Yes.

  • That's a great way to put it.

  • That's what it is.

  • "Jojo Rabbit" is in select theaters Friday.

  • And we'll be right back.

Thanks for being here.
