Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says our favorite characters might end up joining the Army of the Dead in season 8

Game of Thrones has always played with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau‘s character, Jaime Lannister. We started off absolutely hating him, and now we almost saw him die twice in Season 7, and most of us flinched. Season 7 was a major shift for his character, and in the end, we saw him leave Cersei, for the first time ever, and head north.

Nikolaj spoke to Esquire, and he seems to have a fair idea about how things will go for Jaime next season, and he even believes that some of our favorite characters will end up in the Army of the Dead. Read on!

He spoke about Jaime finally leaving at the end of Season 7 finale, we see him say to Cersei, ‘I don’t believe you’. He spoke about what it meant :

“When he says, “I don’t believe you,” it’s not just that he doesn’t believe she’s going to kill him. For me, at least, it was more [like], “That’s it, I don’t love you anymore. You’re on your own.” Why it took him so long, god only knows, but he got there in the end.”

He talked a little more about why Jaime left :

“He’s like, “I have to do this.” He truly believes that we all have to fight this thing. This is humanity at stake. We’ll either have living or dead conquering the world. You see him covering up his gold hand, and he knows he has to get to some sort of commander—whether it be Jon Snow or someone else in charge”

“Otherwise, he’s going into enemy territory, and he’s quite recognizable with that gold hand. If he wants to even get to battle before he’s killed by Stark soldiers, he’s going to need a bit of luck. You’d hope he can get there. But who knows, I might read Episode One of Season Eight and it says Jaime meets a Stark soldier and he’s killed. It would be so disappointing, I make it so far through Season Eight and it’s like, “Yes!” “

Nikolaj seems to believe that while some major characters will join the Army of the Dead, he wouldn’t want that for Jaime :

“The fear is that I would be turned into one of those undead. That would suck. You know some of the main characters are going to get turned. There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around. And, god, I hope it’s not me. That’s three hours of make-up in the morning. I know that if David Benioff and Dan Weiss read this, they’ll go, “Oh, yes we will.””

He was also asked if he thinks Jaime is definitely headed North, to which he replied :

“I do think he’s heading north, unless he’s tricking us all and goes south and just says, “I’m getting the hell out of here.” The double-double-double cross. “I lost my hand, what am I even going to do up there?” He could just be in a row boat getting away.”

“No, I do believe that he’s joining them in the north. You know there are all these swords of Valyrian steel, and you would think those five would all be somewhere in the mix.”

We sure do hope so! Where do you think Jaime is headed, and what do you think is his fate? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Three Game of Thrones actors get Emmy nominations with “unofficial” submissions

Three Game of Thrones actors get Emmy nominations with "unofficial" submissions

Game of Thrones was the world’s biggest television show for nearly a decade, so it’s no surprise that the show had way too much talent. We recently talked about the whopping 32 nominations it scored at the Emmy Awards 2019. One notable thing is, three of these nominations weren’t even filed by HBO, but by the actors themselves. Read on!

Season 8 might have had a bad storyline according to a large section of the fanbase, but everybody can agree on one thing — the actors all gave their best, and the acting was brilliant as usual. Needless to say, the headliners made it to the Emmy nominations again, but HBO didn’t nominate the few actors that really stepped up this season. We had reported about how five actors submitted their own nominations directly.

Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Pilou Asbæk (Euron Greyjoy) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) had entered in the supporting actor category, while Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth) had entered in the supporting actress category, with Carice Van Houten (Melisandre), going for the guest actress category. The great thing is, three of the five made the cut — Alfie Allen, Gwendoline Christie and Carice Van Houten are officially in the race now.

All three had terrific performances, and it is very much possible that they bring in at least one win within the three of them. No doubt they deserve it, especially because they have been voted in despite the submissions being unofficial.

George R. R. Martin praises HBO's Chernobyl, says it's worthy of Emmys

Game of Thrones is over, but HBO has no plans of slowing down. Immediately after Game of Thrones ended, HBO aired a limited series called Chernobyl, which became an instant hit. Now, the creator of the Game of Thrones universe, George R. R. Martin has praised Chernobyl and expressed his approval for the show to win at the Emmy awards. Read on!

Chernobyl is a mini-series about the nuclear plant disaster in the Ukrainian city of the same name, in 1986, and has been named the best ever miniseries by TV enthusiasts worldwide, except maybe in Russia. George took to Twitter to express his love for the series:

Not only did he praise the show, but also Jared Harris, whose performance in the show has been loved by the fans as much as the series itself. Needless to say, the show is expected to shine in the awards season, as Martin expects.

See Tormund and Gendry enjoy a game on Nintendo Switch in Game of Thrones behind the scenes photo

Game of Thrones had the ultimate face-off in Season 8 when the Army of the Dead faced the living folks in Winterfell. The Battle of Winterfell saw a lot of people uniting to take down the Night King, and among them were Tormund Giantsbane, and Gendry (now Baratheon). A new behind the scenes photo from the sets shows the two enjoying a nice game on a Nintendo Switch. Read on!

The picture, posted on the Game of Thrones subreddit, shows Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry, and Kristofer Hivju, who played Tormund Giantsbane, still in their costume and the bloody makeup, just sitting down to play. Take a look:

As we all know, the Battle of Winterfell sequences took a gruesome 55 nights to film, and have been described by the stars as some of the roughest times they have had filming for the show. So it’s no surprise that they would have at least some way to relax on the sets in between takes or appearances.

Nintendo consoles are also famous for being the best for the local multiplayer experience, so that’s probably why these two seem so engrossed in the game. If only we knew which game they were playing!
