Game of Thrones season 8: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau teases Jaime Lannister arc
Updated: 28, June 2018
For the stars of Game of Thrones, their experience has come to an end with several of its lead actors time on the HBO show now at an end.
Who lives and dies remains to be seen, however, it’s already been confirmed that several main characters won’t make it out of the series alive (not that we really needed it confirming, mind).
One character who it seems we should be concerned about is Jaime Lannister. The character, who started out one of the series’ chief villains, has evolved into one of the biggest fan favourites – an example of the show’s strong writing team as well as the performance of actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who has teased the final season in a brand new interview with Vanity Fair.
Now separated from his lover/sister Cersei (Lena Headey), Coster-Waldau was most concerned with evolving this character he’s played since 2011 even further.
“Most people have moments in their life where you go, ‘Can I really, fundamentally change?’ The core of him has always been Cersei. When that’s taken away, what are you then? What’s left? Is there anything left? When he leaves, obviously he has no idea. He doesn’t know the answer to that question.”
Reflecting upon the moment in which Jaime tells Cersei he “doesn’t believe” she’ll have him killed, he adds: “That’s, of course, said in a moment of passion. Who knows if it’s true? I’ve almost been married 20 years – 6 June will be our 20th anniversary – and I’m very, very lucky. I have a wonderful wife. But over 20 years, there are times where you have fights. You can be so angry that for a second in your passion and anger you can go, ‘Oh, f*ck this.’ Of course, three seconds later, you go, ‘No, no, no. What am I doing? What am I thinking?’ I think the fundamental emotions are the same in every relationship. As a setup for the season we’re shooting now, it was just amazing.”
Whatever happens, he believes showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss – who received a standing ovation as the final scene was read out at the table read – have succeeded with the final season.
“The boys have done an amazing job with ending Game of Thrones,” he said. ”It’s definitely been the toughest season – by far – that we’ve shot, ever. But it’s also been the most fulfilling.”

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Confesses Which Jaime Moment He’s Been Waiting For
HBO: As the fighting begins between the Lannisters and Dany’s army, what’s your take on the Lannisters’ military strategy?
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: They accomplish a lot of great things from a military standpoint. Obviously Jaime’s not happy with all of Cersei’s decisions — he doesn’t trust Euron Greyjoy — but it does make sense. His decision to let go of Casterly Rock and set up Daenerys’ army was brilliant.
Of course, the truth is that with the dragons — as well as the Army of the Dead — believing is one thing, seeing is another. When Jaime’s army is attacked by the Dothraki and Daenerys, it changes everything. He realizes there is no way that they can fight this woman. She’s just too powerful. The weapons are just too deadly. So you have a plan, and then you have to change it. Now it’s at a moment where they’re running out of options.
HBO: Speaking of the dragons, what was it like filming “The Spoils of War”?
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: It was amazing. What’s great about the show, is in many ways, they try to create as much as possible. You have all these stunt guys on fire; Dothraki soldiers standing on horseback, firing; the whole loot train. It’s very inspiring. You get to work with people at the very top of their game, and everyone is extremely focused. We shot outside of this little Spanish town called Cáceres and it was a beautiful location. It was, for me, one of the most fun times on Game of Thrones.
HBO: Does Jaime have a plan when he charges Daenerys?
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: It’s spur of the moment. He sees an opening. He’s not an idiot; but even if there’s just a glimmer of possibility that this could work out, he has to take it. It would save the Lannisters. It would save his sister. He doesn’t have time to think. He takes the opportunity and he fails.
HBO: How has Jaime changed over the seasons?
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: In many ways, he is a different man than he was before he lost his hand. I think before he would just use brute force, just knowing, “Hey, I’m stronger than you, so even if you don’t like this, I’m just going to do it and you’re going to have to deal with the consequences.” He can’t do that anymore, but I think it’s made him a better commander. He has been forced to understand and use empathy. We saw last season at Riverrun when he managed to avoid a violent conflict just by talking to Edmure Tully. Jaime used his own understanding that as a father there’s nothing more terrifying than the idea of your children being killed or hurt. The pain he experienced with Myrcella was unlike anything he had ever experienced. Even though it was a very brutal thing to do to Edmure, it was worth it, it actually saved the lives of thousands of people.
