"I see him as an extremely contemporary, progressive and loving father. I think it’s so suitable that he had nothing but daughters to raise. He doesn’t shape ideas based on old conventions so his daughters are not limited by backwards, medieval morality… I think there’s a depth in the way that Oberyn perceives the world and the way he lives in it. I think there’s a lot of woman inside of Oberyn, which attributes to his strength…Perceptiveness. Intelligence. In the world of ‘Game of Thrones,’ which can harshly reflect some of the darker elements of our reality, I would argue that women are often forced to be smarter and more in touch with themselves because their circumstances are so ruled by men. Women’s survival skills kick in a bit earlier."
