Game of Thrones is preparing for Season 8, with filming set to begin in October. We recently heard about how Season 8 will film multiple endings to plug the leaks, but Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the role of Jaime Lannister, recently shot down this rumour, among other things, in an interview with MarieClaire.com. Read on!
First off, speaking about how it works be impractical to film multiple endings, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau said :
“Do you think that’s true? It seems really stupid to me. I mean if it’s true I don’t believe it, but I don’t know, maybe. I mean, I haven’t read the script, so unless they will show several endings that could be a twist, they’re not going to waste that money. They know how expensive it is to shoot. You’re not going to waste $100,000 a day to shoot something you’re not going to use. It’s not going to happen.”
He does make a fair point. Moving on, he talked about how fun it is, filming with Gwendoline Christie, who plays the role of Brienne of Tarth :
“Gwendoline Christie—hands-down. She’s just very funny to be around. She has a very particular laugh, which is infectious (in a good way).”
He also said he wants Jaime to throw incest jokes at Jon Snow :
“I just want to have a scene…a scene where Jaime is with Jon Snow or Aegon Targaryen or whatever his name is. I really want Jaime to find out and I just want to have him laugh at it. Just constantly question him… so how’s your Aunt doing, Aegon? How’s she feeling? There must be a little bit of resemblance because everyone’s just going to applaud him. I think Jaime should be allowed a bit of a comeback.”
He also said he wants Jaime to die of old age, and with a fart noise, which was hilarious. What do you think about this interview? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
