Jaime knighting Brienne was 'an act of love', says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Arise, Ser Brienne of Tarth, knight of the Seven Kingdoms“, so proclaimed Jaime Lannister. The entire Game of Thrones fandom was in tears even as Brienne broke into a glowing smile. Speaking about the already iconic scene to The Wrap, Nikolaj ‘Jaime’ Coster-Waldau confirms what all of us were thinking – Jaime knighted Brienne as a way to express his love for her.

The knighting of Brienne was one of the most memorable moments in last Sunday’s episode, and perhaps the entire show. When asked about his decision to knight Brienne on the spur of the moment, Coster-Waldau said,

“I mean, it’s clearly a woman that he has enormous admiration for and just a human being that he admires. And we saw a scene earlier [in the episode] where he asks if he can serve under her, because he knows she is amazing at what she does and she’s a great warrior and she has all the qualities and is the most deserving of the title of knight of anyone in that world. So I think it’s obviously an act of love.”

Oh-kay!

So does that point to some romantic possibilities in the coming episodes between our favourite lady knight and redemptive bad boy pair? Coster-Waldau is very careful with that answer.

“I mean, we have another four episodes to go, so I think that the less I say about them the better. You know, what she did in the beginning — she saved his life …by vouching for him and clearly there’s a lot of respect [there].”

As always, Coster-Waldau is quick to acknowledge the ‘competition’ – namely, Tormund Giantsbane. The lovable wildling has been trying to win Brienne’s love for several seasons now with hilarious results. But it was his question that actually set in motion the whole knighting ceremony.

For Jaime, women being barred from knighthood was a normal thing. He needed Tormund’s outsider perspective to see there may be some injustice there.

Coster-Waldau states as much when he says,

“I don’t think he thought of it, but then when you hear Tormund Giantsbane go, ‘Well, why can’t a woman be a knight?’ and then she goes, ‘tradition,’ and he says ‘f**k tradition’ — it kind of, I think that inspires him, that moment.”

Game of Thrones gained huge popularity worldwide due to its amazing story, beautiful scenery and perfect casting. Some of these castings were so spot on, the actors came to be identified as their roles in public. One of them was Pedro Pascal’s Red Viper Oberyn Martell.

Oberyn’s screen-time was less compared to many of the show’s leading characters. Pedro delivered the role so perfectly the audience couldn’t take him out of their minds throughout the series. He captivated the viewer’s minds with his charm, cunning and seductiveness as the Red Viper.

Showrunner David Benioff recalls how Pedro was cast into the show in an interview with Variety. “First of all, it was an iPhone selfie audition, which was unusual. And this wasn’t one of the new-fangled iPhones with the fancy cameras. It looked like shit; it was shot vertical; the whole thing was very amateurish. Except for the performance, which was intense and believable and just right.”

Pascal had landed the role after he convinced his good friend Sarah Paulson to send his audition to her best friend Amanda Peet (Benioff’s wife). Benioff continues, “He figures out who the character really is and then he portrays that man, scouring off all falsehood. Plus, he’s really f—ing handsome.”

The Game of Thrones showrunner further went on to praise the charismatic actor, saying he deserved more recognition. His performance was award-worthy. Benioff labels Pedro as ‘an absolute gem of an actor and a man.’

The final season of Game of Thrones remains one of the most divisive and controversial in TV history. The epic fantasy show came to an end with season 8, despite both HBO and George R.R. Martin wanting it to run for longer. The decision to end Game of Thrones was a risky one. The showrunners felt pressure because the A Song of Ice and Fire books were (and remain) unfinished, and they had to deliver a story within a short time. On top of that, bringing such an epic story to a close seemed like an impossible task due to the show’s popularity.

In the book, Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon written by Entertainment Weekly editor James Hibberd, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss explain why they had to end the run early. Benioff said,

d-b-weiss-and-david-benioff-5163436

We didn’t want to become a show that outstayed its welcome. Part of what we love about these books, and the show, is this sense of momentum and building toward something. If we tried to turn it into a ten-season show, we’d strangle the golden goose.”

He continued, “We wanted to stop when the people working on it and watching it wish we had [kept going] a little bit longer. There’s the old adage of ‘Always leave them wanting more,’ but also when you stop wanting to be there – that’s when things fall apart.”

Weiss said, “When we gave them the final outline, that helped. They were able to see why taking this and stretching it into another ten episodes would ruin this and make something that’s ideally powerful and affecting feel drawn out.”

There was even a petition to remake the final season. Would you have signed it? Tell us in the comments below!

Game of Thrones ended more than a year ago. The last season was shocking as well as controversial for many reasons for fans worldwide. One of them is the completely unexpected love-making scene involving Gendry (Joe Dempsie) and Arya (Maisie Williams) right before the Long Night.

Joe Dempsie, who played Gendry Baratheon on the show, talked to Digital Spy on how he felt about the controversial fling. “I think Gendry just lost his head a bit, didn’t he?” reflected Dempsie, “He’s so drunk on legitimacy and popped the question!

He continued, “I think I’ve always thought that, actually, as wounded as he might have been in the aftermath, as soon as Gendry has time to sit down and think properly about it and rationalise everything, it’ll be pretty clear to him that probably the very reason he loved Arya was the exact reason she could never be with him.”

Dempsie’s deduction is in agreement with the faction of the fans who found Arya and Gendry to be an odd pair. The intimate scene was distasteful and shocking for some, though others had no issue as they were waiting for the impending battle in the next episode.

Joe explains further, “I know that Gendry’s not often been the brightest or the sharpest tool in the drawer, but I think he’s smart enough to know,” he said. “I think he’s perceptive enough to know that. It never would have worked.”

Dempsie is currently starring in Channel-4 drama Adult Material. How do you feel about the love-making scene? Let us know in the comments below!
