Note: Do NOT read on if you have not yet seen Season 3, Episode 9 of HBO's "Game of Thrones," "The Rains of Castamere."

As soon as he wrapped the bloody "Game of Thrones" scene in which his character, Robb Stark, was killed, actor Richard Madden went straight to the airport and flew home to London.

"And I cried the whole way," Madden said in a recent phone interview. "I was the crazy boy on the plane crying."

In an interview with a small group of journalists on Friday, Madden talked about how difficult it was to film the Red Wedding, a tragic event that was even bloodier on the screen than it was in the George R.R. Martin book.

Not only did Robb Stark, the King in the North, perish in Sunday's episode, but Robb's mother, Catelyn (Michelle Fairley), also died -- all of which tracks with what transpired at those cursed nuptials in "A Storm of Swords," the third book in Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. As payback for Robb not marrying one of his daughters, Lord Walder Frey engineered the deaths of the Starks -- but even those who've read the books may have been shocked by the third significant death at the so-called Red Wedding.

In the episode, Robb's pregnant wife, Talisa, was also murdered, thus eliminating the Stark clan from competition for the Iron Throne (at least for now). As fans know, Talisa (Oona Chaplin) is a new character; in the books, Robb married Jeyne Westerling (who did not die in "A Storm of Swords").

Below, Madden talks about filming Robb's final moments, working with his great friend Fairley and the tears that were shed on set that difficult day. He also offers thoughts on why Talisa had to die and discusses what the King in the North had in common with his ill-fated father, Ned. Don't miss HuffPost TV's interview with Fairley.
