Interview: Denver Comic Con guest Finn Jones talks ‘Iron Fist,’ ‘GoT’ and social causes

The legendary Iron Fist is headed to Denver Comic Con. Fans are looking forward to meeting “Iron Fist” star Finn Jones at this year’s con, June 30-July 2, 2017 at the Colorado Convention Center.

Jones is best known for this role as Loras Tyrell from “Game of Thrones” and also appeared in the Doctor Who spinoff “The Sarah Jane Adventures.” Currently, Jones is the mystic fist-wielding billionaire Daniel Rand in the newest Marvel Netflix shows “Iron Fist.” This character will also be a member of “The Defenders” alongside fellow Marvel Netflix heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage; airing August 18 on Netflix.

AXS wanted to have a quick chat with Jones before his DCC appearance. Check it out below.

AXS: Fans are looking forward to the August premiere of “The Defenders.” How has your life changed since joining the Marvel universe with your role as the Iron Fist?

Finn Jones: Well I no longer live in my hometown of London. Since landing the job I now live in New York which is a pretty big life change. I’m certainly a lot more active and busier than I was before, but I still pretty much operate the same. I take the subway still, I continue to go to concerts and hang out, enjoying my life as I did before.

AXS: Do you and your character Danny Rand share any similarities?

FJ: Yep, there are a few similarities I bring to Danny. I bring my vulnerabilities and trauma to the character; I also bring a lot of strength and optimism to from my own personality.

AXS: Let’s chat “Game of Thrones.” You played Loras Tyrell and fans loved your character. What do you miss most about your experience on the show?

FJ: I miss the people. I worked on that show for six years and grew up amongst an incredible group of people my age. They have become lifelong friends and it’s hard now being away from them. That’s just the life of an actor though.

AXS: How did you catch the acting bug?

FJ: It was in my DNA long before I was born, it’s something I’ve never actively chosen to do. It chose me.

AXS: Do you have any social causes close to your heart?

FJ: The erosion of civil liberties and social progression across the world, also the threat of a shifting environment. We have some serious demons to confront in the coming years and if we don’t tackle them head on with empathy and the correct attitude of understanding we will continue to deteriorate as a planet and as a species.

SCANS: The Defenders preview on Empire Magazine

Finn and The Defenders cast featured on Empire UK new issue. You can find the digital can on our gallery and read the article here:

IF THERE’S ONE thing people love more than superheroes, it’s more superheroes. Superheroes all over the shop, teaming up, palling around, occasionally squabbling. Oh, and fighting evil.

The Avengers did it, to great success of course, in 2012, which triggered a vast expansion of costumed crusaders. And now comes the latest big Marvel team, streaming straight to sofas everywhere: The Defenders. The latest bingeable Netflix series isn’t, as you might think, focused on a flat back four. Instead, it brings together, over a truncated eight episodes, the four heroes introduced over the last three years — Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock/Daredevil, Krysten Ritter’s Jessica Jones, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage, and the most recent addition, the much-maligned Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones) — to face down a threat so great, one hero won’t do: Sigourney Weaver, as a mysterious and powerful executive called Alexandra. Oh, and shadowy ninja organisation The Hand.

“I was concerned about how you could combine those worlds,” admits Cox. “Tonally they feel so different. But it feels like all the characters have been respected, and the show has a tone of its own. [They’ve] kept it grounded, but at the same time it lives in a slightly mythical world.”

It may not rival The Avengers in scale, but The Defenders will mark a definite step up in scale from the solo shows, where these street-level heroes set about — yes! — defending their New York boroughs, from Hell’s Kitchen to Harlem, with vigilante vigour. None would be a prized card in a Marvel Top Trumps game. There’s nobody here with Thor-level powers. Daredevil is a blind man with heightened senses and ninja training. Jessica Jones punches things and delivers sardonic one-liners. Luke Cage is bulletproof and also punches things. Danny Rand has a glowing fist, ideal for karate-chopping things, and is again with the ninja training.

But its joys won’t just come from seeing them facing off against Weaver and her minions (“Aliens is one of my favourite movies,” laughs Cox. “I wanted to say, ‘Get away from her, you bitch!’ when I met her at New York Comic-Con, but I chickened out”). It’ll also stem from the interplay between these four hardened, cynical heroes, some of whom (Luke and Jessica) have already met, and exchanged more than fighting tips. “We’re very reluctant at first,” says Colter. “Nobody really wants to work with anyone.” In fact, there could be so much infighting, it might well be a case of Defenders Disassemble. “By the end of the show, I think it might be more like The Hangover,” laughs Colter. “‘I don’t ever want to see you again!’”
