Nikolaj-Coster Waldau hints at Jaime Lannister’s ‘beautiful’ fate




Nikolaj-Coster Waldau Hints at Jaime Lannister’s Fate

Game of Thrones season 8 is now less than 20 days away and both media and fan frenzy is reaching new heights. But there’s one thing at least we can be sure of, thanks to Nikolaj-Coster Waldau. Jaime Lannister gets a really beautiful resolution to all his trials by the end of the show – and also a paw.

In an interview with the Men’s Health Magazine, the Danish actor would have us believe, with a straight face, that Jaime’s maimed right hand finally grows back. But there’s a twist. We’ll let you hear it straight from the lion’s mouth:

“He grows out his arm … but not in the way you think …. It comes out as a claw. No—it’s a paw.”

Claw or paw, chances are this isn’t true. But he did reveal some other details about his last scene in another recent interview:

“I had a great last scene. It was absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect way to end, obviously I can’t tell you what the scene was … It wasn’t the final scene (of the series), but it was close to the end. It was shot at a beautiful location.”

That isn’t much, to be honest. But it does give us more room to speculate. For example, by ‘really beautiful’ location does he mean some new place in the North? Also, if the scene wasn’t the last scene of the series, does that mean Jaime doesn’t survive the season? Questions, questions.

Jaime Lannister has always been a character of many layers, and the Danish actor has played him with finesse and depth. In his words,

“I find Jamie so interesting … The core of this guy is that he does what he does in the name of love. He’s a complex guy.”

And that is the sort of emotional honesty that Waldau has tried to bring to his portrayal of Jaime’s many questionable decisions; for example his relationship with twin sister Cersei Lannister. In his words, despite the taboo,

“It’s one of the few true love stories in Game of Thrones—Jaime is dedicated to this woman.”

Will Jaime’s fate bring him back to Cersei again, this time as her doom? Many fans have theorized Maggy the Mage’s  ‘Valonquar’ prophecy about Cersei’s death refers to Jaime, as ‘Valonquar’ means ‘little brother’ in High Valyrian and Jaime is, in fact, a few minutes younger than Cersei. Well, Waldau certainly isn’t revealing anything. He’d rather talk about what happened behind the camera.

“At this point, I had seen quite a lot of colleagues wrap, so I had seen a lot of tears, beautiful speeches, and I knew what to expect. I didn’t expect to be emotional, so I don’t know what happened, I had allergy, there was something in my eye.” Waldau smiles.

Chances are, we will have things in our eyes too when the season gets to the point.

Read on!

Kit was recently at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards where he was the only Game of Thrones actor nominated for one. Ryan Seacrest of E! Caught up with them for a short interview bit on the red carpet. Check the video out:

Seacrest noted he was the only Game of Thrones member present at the awards (except Jason Momoa). Kit said:

“I haven’t got my gang. It’s odd. I haven’t been to these things without the rest of us around. So I’m a little jealous of the Succession dudes.”

Kit was nominated for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama) category but did not win. Seacrest then asked him if he still thought about Jon Snow:

“I think about him all the time. It was always just getting into costume the first day back, getting into that outfit and just sort of being back on set, back with him on character. I loved it. It’s in retrospect that you start loving it. It does go by fast. Ten years, like that.”

Well, we hope Kit knows that we miss Jon Snow just as much as he does.  what do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

“It is so much that is unexpected, it doesn’t follow any rules of storytelling.” He also added the sheer amount of hard work that about 2000 people put in on the show had also something to do about making the show a giant success.

Jerome Flynn that played the character of Bronn on the show said:

“The richness of character that George originally created had so much wide array of emotions. The job the makers did of translating the characters from book to the screen and also the epic nature that HBO brought to the show”

Flynn believed are all part of the reasons why the show was such a massive success. Isaac Hempstead on the other hand believed:

“The attention to detail on the show was unparalleled. Literally, the books on the show were handwritten by the props department and you might only see it for 2 minutes..”
