Nikolaj Coster-Waldau reckons the King is too powerful for his own good

Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has defended one of the hit show’s most hated character’s, King Joffrey (played by Jack Gleeson), insisting he’s just gone power crazy, much like today’s crop of popstars!

Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister, joked to Access Hollywood that the evil boy-king’s behaviour could be compared to certain teen superstars today, we wonder who on earth he’s talking about….

“Joffrey is a very different individual. There’s no question he’s a little monster, he’s a little psychopath, but, if you look [at people] like young popstars, or if you become very powerful … a lot of people look up to you for guidance,” Coster-Waldau argued.

He went on to say: “When you’re just a teenager, it’s not easy. It’s kind of a recipe for disaster.”

The actor also revealed Game of Thrones’ third season, which draws to a close this weekend in the US and on Monday in the UK, has been his favourite so far, because his own character Jaime has made the transition for from villain to hero.

“It’s been a great season to shoot. It’s been so much fun,” he gushed. “I’ve enjoyed it from the beginning, but of course, I was hoping that we would make it to this season because there would be a payoff for some of the stuff we set up early.”

The actor continued: “With Jaime you have this extreme beginning, and I know at the same time that the reason he pushed Bran out the window is not because he’s an evil psychopath, but because he’s actually trying to protect the woman he loves and her children. ”

“[The audience doesn’t] know that for a long time, but that is slowly revealed. And also, I just love him as a character. There’s nothing better for an actor than to have secrets and he has so many secrets – big ones, small ones, like existential secrets.”

The HBO show shocked viewers last week with it’s bloody end to the penultimate episode of the season. Author George RR Martin has been defending his decision to kill off key characters in an interview this week, insisting he wants to keep fans afraid for their favourite characters’ fates…
