Tywin Being a Boss for 5 minutes straight

  • Published on Jun 17, 2019 veröffentlicht
  • A funny Minutes Straight Game of Thrones video!! There are a lot of funny edits and I use text edits as a form of commentary to add something new to the video and I also use it as a form of funny character expressions. This video is centered around Tywin Lannister being a badass/boss and shows some of his best moments.

    Tywin Lannister is one of the few characters that was actually better on the show than in the books. Charles Dance did an amazing job!

      Varys also. In the books,he's hardly noticeable. In the show,he shows more charm,through

      Yes. In the books Varys is a bit obvious in how much of a snake he is. In the show nobody knows wtf he wants or thinks.

      In the books he’s kind of one dimensional and easy to hate, in the show Charles Dance’s charisma plus his scenes with Arya humanized him a bit.

    Tywins's relationship with Tyrion is so funny to me.

      In a way, Tywin made Tyrion a stronger person. He showed him the world is cruel and you have to use your wits to survive and thrive more than anything. Intentionally? Probably not. But he did, and I do think somewhere deep down he had a begrudging respect when Tyrion achieved things, but his harsh hand and blaming his son for his wife's death didn't fix the problems he perceived with him obviously and backfired.

    Tywin Lannister is one of the best fictional antagonists of all time; Charles Dance is a true legendary Shakespearean actor. His line "any man who must say 'I am the king' is no true king" still gives me chills. He's one of those characters who can draw the attention of an entire audience and silence a crowd with just his mere presence. GOT wasn't nearly as good once he was gone

    • Mohammad Ahmad
      Mohammad Ahmad Year ago +58

      Truly a legend! Also gotta give credit to GRRM for making such a character, as well as the crew in charge of body language. Charles Dance is a charismatic and amazing actor. Something You can notice is the way he demands people. Normally, someone would say: "You must do this and that". But for Charles/Tywin it's always: "You WILL go to king's landing and you WILL serve as hand of the king". Literally making decisions and not giving you a choice to refuse lol.

    • Justin Credible
      Justin Credible 11 months ago +13

      TV antagonist you mean. It’s not so much like that in the actual books. In the show the Lannisters are made out to be the typical super rich bad guys using their money and influence to get more power to hurt the “good” guys, while the Starks and Targaryens are the good guys form barren wastelands and humble beginnings, but it’s not as black and white in the books. For one, Littlefinger coerced Ned and Cat into attacking the Lannisters by kidnapping Tyrion so technically Tywin isn’t an antagonist, they are, as well as Baelish. Cersei from what we gather had no ambition to kill Robert and take the throne until AFTER Ned started snooping around because of course she would or else she and her kids would be killed and Lannister house, disgraced…

      @ 3:53 More talent in this room than every character in the MCU combined. Olenna’s just like “someone with brains to match mine. Touché.” Dianna Rigg and Charles Dance played the hell out of their characters and made them some of the best in the show. Olenna’s definitely top 3 characters in this show for me

      More like Tywin bossing the Night's King to marry Cersei, as she's the most beautiful woman in Westeros, belonging to thé most prominent family in Westeros, meaning an Alliance between the White Walkers and House Lannister would Ensure a Dynasty that'd last a Thousand years! Either that, or Tywin would sign the White Walkers to the Kingsguard. They would raise no wights, command no troops for the Night's King, and his legacy would fade away..."

      What made him such a good character was the way he was shown as utterly ruthless and all-powerful, without anyone ever saying as such. It was almost like an unspoken truth that Tywin was the true ruler of the Seven Kingdoms, and Charles Dance portrayed that aspect perfectly.

    Tywin was a likeable character. Although he represented the “enemy” in the show, he was reasonable and generally wise. He could definitely be cruel, and was, but he usually made good decisions for his side. A very formidable adversary.

      @Kane Recardo not sure what backstory you mean lmao, the one where he publically humiliated his fathers mistress (walk of shame) the one where he brutally murdered the tarbecks and literally drowned the entire population of the reynes or the one where he ordered the murder of two children (aegon and rhaenys) and possibly their mother elia aswell?

    • Kane Recardo
      Kane Recardo 6 months ago +8

      @Benjamin Lechner the one where his family name had been dragged through the mud by an incompetent father and after all the hard work of restoring it he lost the one of the only people in his life that brought genuine joy to it. It's Westeros, basically every lord that had ever existed did horrific things, and it's sympathetic relative to what we see him as in the TV series and books.

    As bad as Tywin was, I think he actually was a pragmatist in the end. He would fight and kill when need be, but ultimately he wanted people working, and the wheels turning, etc. He didn't want rebellions, he didn't want peasants starving, he didn't want war, and he knew how rotten and selfish his kids and especially grandson could be at times. He knew he had absolute power and didn't need approval from anyone.
    He wasn't interested in making a spectacle of himself, he was interested in the survival of his family.

      So many years of watching you dad be a jackass rather than a lion would do that to a man. He tried so hard to make his house well respected that people kept underestimating the lannister name on the account of his father. Forcing him to become the embodiment of, fuck around, and find out. And that's all because he wanted to put some respect to his house.

      I don't think that was a line from the books. In reality, the reasons are slightly different from book to show. In the book, Tywin was *PISSED* at Tyrion because Cersei told Tywin that Tyrion threatened to rape Tommen if anything happened to Shae.
      Tyrion was bluffing of course, but to threaten to rape your nephew on account of a whore's affection was a massive sign of weakness in Tywin's eyes. That's why he was incredibly angry at Tyrion like, "are you fucking serious?"

    • LoneStarWolf Entertainment
      LoneStarWolf Entertainment 3 years ago +202

      Wisemankugel Memicus Wisemankugel Memicus I hated him because of the way he views other people, he sees people as pieces on a chess board to be used as he pleases and thrown away when they’ve lost all use when in reality people are far more complex then that and sooner or later they are gonna get tired of being seen as chess pieces and I don’t know about you but I think an old lion can get killed by being trampled on by a stampede of angry sheep.

    • Wisemankugel Memicus
      Wisemankugel Memicus 3 years ago +38

      @LoneStarWolf Entertainment The thing is then, we can make the very real argument that in some ways that Tywin was like the Zhukov of AWOIAF (aside from the dying before he could finish his job thing). He seemed like he was a good guy before the lifetime of suffering and injustice and politics. Basically, Tywin was the type of guy who had seen so much horrible shit, and victory was in his hands so he reaped the plunder. He was eventually so used to victory and used to plunder that this is how he saw everyone - a tool to further his family's legacy, or a tool to be used, then thrown away and discarded. Not only that but under his command, the Lannister-Tyrell Army made some of it's greatest gains.
      HOWEVER, you are completely morally in the right to see this type of person as completely shitty. Even if it is a very morally gray area. For instance, Tywin's greatest atrocity: the execution of the Castameres, was to gain a cult of personality where his allies would respect him and his enemies would fear him. It would be cool to see the Castameres, but they rebelled against Tywin, there were never going to survive.

    • LoneStarWolf Entertainment
      LoneStarWolf Entertainment 3 years ago +69

      Wisemankugel Memicus I believe it’s stated in the books that Tywin was not necessarily nicer just not nearly as cold as he is now back when his wife (whom practically had him in the palm of her hand) was still alive, me personally I’m conflicted on how I feel about Tywin because on the one hand he has done some very bad shit that I simply can not overlook (even if all of it was necessary) but on the other hand he has done a lot of good for the realm as Hand Of The King even if it was more to save face then out of a sense of Altruism (in his time as Hand to Aerys he had heavily damaged roads repaired and new ones built to ensure proper trade which is just one of many things he did that helped the Realm) and then there’s also his scenes with Arya that greatly humanized him and the fact that he’s not needless cruel (atleast not to anyone that isn’t Tyrion, if Tywin was in King’s Landing after Ned Stark died he wouldn’t have treated Sansa the way Joffrey did). Overall that’s how you know he’s a good antagonist.

    • Husam Janahi
      Husam Janahi 5 months ago +8

      I feel like out of all the lines that he has, this was one of the most ingenuin ones he's said, i feel like he only said it to save his skin because those words are what Tyrion always wanted to hear and tywin didn't think of saying them until he was under Tyrion's mercy? He might've said those words but he never did do anything to honor those words before, one of them being that he didn't make him heir to castly rock just because he's an imp, although he did a phenomenal job as hand of the king.
      Also, tyrion is as smart as his father, if he knew his words were genuine he wouldn't have killed him, because tyrion did infact want to be praised for his deeds and he did want to be good to people, but if his father won't give him that then who will?

    Tywin was a vastly multifaceted character. You could easily just dismiss him out of hand as a villain, but he’s more layered and complex than that when you realize that everything he does is to improve his family’s standing and situation. He’s intelligent, pragmatic, ruthless, and has will of steel! The scene where he discusses with Tyrion whether or not it’s honorable to murder one’s enemies at a wedding is a perfect illustration of who he is, what he stands for, and what he believes in. Charles Dance was the perfect actor to play him. Especially with that velvety voice and that cold stare.

  • Every English comment shall say the f word

    The best character in all of GOT. Together with Gus Fring and Darth Maul he forms the trifecta of the best villains in TV history. Charles Dance truly is one of the best actors in the whole show and his demeanor and delivery was perfect every single time, to the point where he could dominate a scene by merely uttering 4 lines of dialogue (and by could I mean he did, the small council meeting after the Red Wedding gave him 4 lines of dialogue and he still took the spotlight)

      That’s the best kind of villain. You feel like you should hate their guts and if they were an actual person irl, you would. But you just can’t help but grin every time they’re on screen.
      Feels like Dance probably had a blast playing the part too. It’s a dream role for an actor to just let loose with because you don’t have to be relatable anymore and can just pour out your acting chops.

    Such a fantastic character. You can see that he is not concerned with minor petty disputes like all the soldiers and antagonistic knights in Westeros. He is a different type of evil, the type that you can almost like because he never killed anyone unless it was to further his house strength and goals. Tyrion got his mind from his father

    Not because they can swing a sword well or ride a dragon, but purely because of how smart and clever their dialogue was and how well they interact with anyone they speak to.

    I realize how sad the final scene is. Tywin knew in those final moments that all Tyrion wanted was praise and acceptance from his father. Tywin used that in a final effort to protect himself, and you can see the grief in Tyrion, who must have felt tempted to believe his father's words, because it felt so good to hear, but at the same time knew it must have been false. How sad, poor Tyrion. I wonder if Tywin really had any kind of realization in that moment.

    Tywin and Arya together were epic. It was an actual improvement to the books, and I believe the only reason why all of the show's scenes with Tywin that had dialog and character development that wasn't taken directly from the books were only better because of Charles Dance.

    The funny thing is, I'd imagine Tywin was telling the truth at the end. If Tyrion dies, he doesn't get Jamie's promise. I'm sure he could fake Tyrion's death and secretly have him sent off to the wall to appease Jamie and stick to his original plan.

    Charles Dance is such a great actor and the perfect choice for Tywin. But also, Tywin is a great character. Witty, wise, a total badass without being physically threatening, but not the typical cookie cutter villain. In fact, I always felt that he is a stern but ultimately good leader. He understands how everything works. One of my favourite scenes was when he scoffed at those guys that tortured peasants to get information - he pointed out that they were wasting craftsmen and working forces they depend on. He understands how important it is to have allies and to keep promises. I really think that Tywin is exactly as unscrupulous as he needs to be. He would do everything to keep his house, line and kingdom together. And if he wasn't born into such a cutthroat world he would probably be a very noble ruler.
    He was one of the villains (of sorts) that I really didn't want to die. Although I have to admit that I never understood his hatred for Tyrion. I know that that was necessary for the plot and Tyrions character arc, but damn, imagine how powerful the Lannisters would have been if they just treated Tyrion better. Tywin, Tyrion, Jamie and Cercei united - what a force! Wisdom, military prowess, artfullness and street smarts.
