I have a couple of things for you. The first are some posters from HBO of GAME OF THRONES season three. The main one is a close up shot of Nikolaj as Jaime, the others are just promo posters and one of a three-shot with Jaime, Cersi (Lena Headey) and Joffrey (Jack Gleason). The other addition are the real scans from a photo shoot Nikolaj did in the March issue of GQ magazine. I scanned these from the magazine, they’re not from the GQ site or from Just Jared. If you are going to repost, please credit back to this site as a curtosey. While the magazine didn’t cost much, it’s the time it took to scan and upload. Thanks. The contents of the article will be printed below the cut.

If you’re one of the holdouts to HBO’s Game of Thrones because shadow babies and snow zombies strike you as fantasy, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the rakish Jaime Lannister, won’t hold it against you. Although the books have sold more than 20 million copies and spawned moblike forums berating author George R.R. Martin for not yet having completed the series (“Pull your fucking typewriter out of your ass and start fucking typing”), the 42-year-old Dane admits to having reservations about the genre. “It’s probably my own lack of education,” he says carefully, “but you know, it’s always good guy against bad guy, and there are those really tacky book covers.” What eventually sold him on the show, though, is its all-too-human characters with their flesh-and-blood ambitions and flaws.
In real life, Coster-Waldau has kept a low profile, though that might change this year after he appears in Tom Cruise’s postapocalyptic Oblivion and in the horror movie Mama. The latter is another genre about which he’s squeamish: “I had to watch it with the sound turned way down. I’m such a wimp.” One can imagine certain other names GoT fanboys might call him for that.
