In fact, Richard says Cinderella would be A-OK on her own if he never met her in the movie. "I think Cinderella would fine without the prince," he explained to Cambio during AOL Build for Cinderella. "That's why I was interested in this. It was more of a challenge because I had to develop a male character that's worthy of Cinderella's affections, rather than that old fashioned view of a damsel in distress that needs a man to save her."
"It's not relevant and probably not something we should be telling little girls anymore," he shares. Excuse us while we swoon over this feminist prince! The Game of Thrones star also says the new Cinderella is an empowered woman who girls can look up to as a role model. "I wanted to do this project because it was about two people coming together and bringing out the best in each other."
