Nikolaj Coster-Waldau teases Jaime Lannister's fate

The character started out as one of the series' villains, but has evolved into one of the fan favourites in the fantasy series

Published: 26th June 2018

Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says he is not sure whether his character Jaime Lannister will ever be able to move on from his sister and lover, Cersei (Lena Headey).

Jaime Lannister started out as one of the series' villains, but has evolved into one of the fan favourites in the fantasy series. In season seven, he takes the most pivotal decision of his life: to leave Cersei. 

So, what does the show's final season look like for Jaime, now that he is without the relationship that has defined his entire existence? "Can we redefine ourselves? Most people have moments in their life where you go, ‘Can I really, fundamentally change?' The core of him has always been Cersei," says Coster-Waldau, adding, "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."

About Jaime telling Cersei he "doesn't believe" she will have him killed, the actor says, "That's, of course, said in a moment of passion. Who knows if it's true? I've been married 20 years and I have a wonderful wife. But over these years, there are times when we've had fights. You can be so angry that for a second, in your passion and anger, you can go, 'Oh, fuck this'. Of course, three seconds later, you go, 'No, no, no. What am I doing?' 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."

The final season of Game of Thrones will premiere next year.
