During the recently held San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Richard was officially confirmed to play the role of Ikaris in MCU'S (Marvel Cinematic Universe) The Eternals. There's also rumours that Madden could be the next James Bond after Daniel Craig.

While appearing for Lynn Hirschberg's Screen Tests, Richard was asked about his celebrity crush growing up. To this, the Game of Thrones star revealed that it was Cameron Diaz and the specific movie was her debut film, The Mask (1994) opposite Jim Carrey. "My crush growing up was Cameron Diaz in The Mask. It was the best thing I had ever seen for years. There's just lots of wonderful things by Cameron Diaz. Definitely, when I was a kid, I was just that teenage hormonal age with The Mask and everything and she was...that red dress thing and you're like...," Madden confessed.
