‘Game of Thrones’ star explains why Jaime Lannister is a good person despite all the murder


When we met Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones, he was hardly the show’s moral compass (that title was easily won by Ned Stark, R.I.P.). 

He was charming, powerful, condescending – he was a dick, really, and his character arc throughout the series has been one of the most compelling. As Game of Thrones chipped away at Jaime’s familial responsibilities and relationship with Cersei, a real human being emerged — and he even made an actual friend through his road trip with Brienne of Tarth.

“I think that my character on Game of Thrones has strong morals,” actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau told Mashable while promoting his latest feature film, Small Crimes. “It’s all about other people’s needs, about his sister’s needs. And I think that in Small Crimes, Joe is all about himself.” Read more…

One ‘Game of Thrones’ star is pretty confident he’s safe until the very end


Only two things are certain in Game of Thrones: death, and more death. 

But one of the stars seems to be feeling pretty confident about his chances of making it to the end of the series, despite its notoriously high body count.

Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) certainly seemed like an underdog when he was introduced in Season 1 — but author George R. R. Martin has proven that he’s a big fan of underdogs; or “cripples, bastards and broken things,” as Tyrion Lannister once famously observed.

With that in mind, Bradley recently offered a pretty compelling argument for his character’s continued existence during a podcast interview: “The thing about Sam is, if he’s still around at this stage, you do suspect that there is gonna be a point to keeping him around.” Read more…

“I just do a seen with Maise [Williams],” Sheeran reveals, “I don’t really know what I’m allowed to say.”

He adds, “I sing a song and then she [Arya] goes, ‘Oh, that’s a nice song,’ and I go, ‘It’s a new one’ and then there’s other lines.” Read more…

Jaime Lannister on his family: ‘If they lose the crown…they’re probably going to lose their heads’


Six seasons into Game of Thrones, you have to wonder: How many of these characters even care about the Iron Throne anymore? Aren’t they busy enough just trying to stay alive?

Yes and no, according to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister. The actor, who appears in Netflix’s Small Crimes (now streaming), told Mashable that his character is only invested in the crown because it keeps him alive.

“I think he cares about it not being someone that the Lannisters can’t control,” he said of the fate of the Iron Throne. “I think [Jaime] understands there’s no question that if they lose the crown, obviously they’re probably going to lose their heads.” Read more…
