What does “come across” mean here?
Answer from a Native speaker
"Come across" in this scenario means to appear or sound a certain way, especially when it comes to first impressions. In this video, Kit Harrington is asking Toothless if he appears or sounds broody to others. Ex: He comes across as very shy. Ex: When I first met her, she came across as very sweet, but she's actually quite rude.
