Welcome to NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU ONLINE @ nikolajcosterwaldau.org an online resource dedicated to Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Currently being seen as Ser Jaime Lannister on the hugely successful HBO series Game of Thrones, Nikolaj has a varied film and television history. Included are the series New Amsterdam, Virtuality, and Blekingegade. Nikolaj's films include Mama, Black Hawk Down, Wimbledon, Vildspor in which Nikolaj wrote and directed, Enigma, Kingdom of Heaven, The Baker, A Thousand Times Goodnight, Gods of Egypt, Nattevagten and soon to be seen in Nattevagten 2. Nikolaj has also been named the UNDP Goodwill Ambassador to raise awareness and support United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals, an action to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. If you're a fan of Nikolaj's please make this your best choice for all things pertaining to his career. This site has an explicit NO CANDIDS policy.

There were about 15 season seven promotional images released by HBO. Of the 15, there is only one of Nikolaj as Jaime. It shows Jaime standing by Cersei’s (Lena Headey) side as she sits on the Iron Throne. I’m just going to post it here since it’s not a high quality image. Click on the image for a larger version.



In an interview with Radio Times, Nikolaj may have let something slip in terms of what is coming for season seven. When asked about Jaime’s love for Cersei (Lena Headey), Nikolaj said that there may be new suitors. So could we be getting a marriage proposal to Queen Cersei from of all people Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk)? Remember he did say he was going to sail to Meereen to offer Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) his cock. Could Cersei be the recipient of such a gift? Too funny. Read the article.

Does Cersei have a new love interest on Game of Thrones?

Jaime Lannister lets slip a potential spoiler…

Now, we’re not saying we’re rooting for the perverse, incestuous relationship between twins Cersei and Jaime Lannister. But over the course of six series, we’ve grown accustomed to the ‘us against the world’ attitude of these two and their steadfast devotion – despite Cersei’s increasingly tyrannical behaviour. (That woman should NEVER have been let near such a large stash of wildfire.)

But there was something in the look Jaime gave Cersei in the series six finale – after she’d blown up Kings Landing and forced their one remaining son to commit suicide – that had us doubt how much longer he will stand by his twin sister’s side.

So, perhaps it should come as no great surprise that the upcoming seventh season looks set to introduce a new love interest for Cersei.

Speaking to the Daily Beast, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau explained how his character, Jaime “is not like his sister and brother, but he’s been on the battlefield his whole life, and knows about people’s weaknesses and loving someone unconditionally—because he loves his sister unconditionally. Plus, there are no other suitors. Well, that’s not true… but he has to step up and take his father’s place.”

The actor then added: “Wow, I was about to reveal something from Season 7 and thought, “What am I doing?”

Does this mean Jaime has forsaken Cersei and she is now welcoming new advances? Unfortunately Coster-Waldau recovered and remained frustratingly tight-lipped, but he did shed some light on that look his character gave Cersei as she was crowned:

“Jaime’s addicted to something – almost institutionalised by a situation to where there is no other way. For Jaime, there is no other way. He’s been groomed since he was 15 that, whatever his life is, it starts and ends with Cersei. He has to accommodate her. He’s done that his whole life, and he’s reached a moment now where he suddenly has to address it. What’s interesting about that is people will read into it and there was no line – it’s just a look.”

With the new series beginning on 16th July, we’ve not all that long to wait until we see what exactly was behind that look…

Finally a promo for season seven. Here Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) doing the “long walk” to their individual thrones: Jon at Winterfell, Dany at Dragonstone and Cersei at King’s Landing. No Jaime, but I truly am hoping he breaks with Cersei and agrees to joining Jon in the fight against the Whitewalkers.



We finally have a teaser trailer for season seven. It’s not much but very interesting. It’s all the sigils of each house including Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, Greyjoy, Tyrell, and many others with voice overs from the cast. It looks like the sculpture is in Dragon Glass and it morphs according to who is speaking. We also have some more information regarding the official premiere date. That will be officially 16 July, 2017. That of course is a Sunday night. And there is also the word that each of the seven episodes of the seventh season will be extended by at least twenty full minutes. That means much, much more in terms of story and action. All in all I can’t wait for July. Interesting it happens around both mine and Nikolaj’s birthdays. Happy Birthday to US.



There is a trailer for Nikolaj’s exclusive Netflix film SMALL CRIMES. This thing looks funny. Nikolaj’s character in the trailer reminds me of his character of Martin in NATTEVAGTEN.



I’ve added all of the event images Nikolaj attended in 2016. These are all I have to date. I’m in the process of trying to get all of them up, but considering the amount I’m going to ask your patience.



Okay so IMDB apparently has set the premiere date for season seven. I’ve included the word “tentative” in the title because this so far is not confirmed by HBO. For now well keep to that word. According to IMDB looks like GAME OF THRONES season seven will premiere on 25 June, 2017. Again this is tentative, but we knew the show was going to air sometime in early July. Given this information I’m going to say this is about right. I’ll post more when I know more, but for now this is what we have. At least it won’t be late August as we believed it would be back at the end of season six.



If I can’t give you anything else right now, I’ll give you Nikolaj attending the 74th Annual Golden Globes. He was there representing HBO and GAME OF THRONES. He’s seen in the Inside Party with Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth).

   
   



I know it’s been some time since I updated, and I’m truly sorry for that. I’ve had a lot going on in my life and some of my online pursuits had to take a backseat. We’re back now, hopefully for good since as I’ve found out we are the only site dedicated to Nikolaj on the web. So for now I hope I can get all the things I have backlogged up on the site. I hope you like the new layout. Thank you to Kaci for her lovely designs. I still have a few more tweaks on various sections, but for the most part we’re live.



An interesting article from PopOptiq on Nikolaj’s series NEW AMSTERDAM where he played the part of John Amsterdam, an immortal who comes to the New World in the 1600s, and will live until he finds his one true love. Nikolaj starred in this series before both VIRTUALITY and of course, GAME OF THRONES. The show also starred Alexie Gilmore who played Dr. Sara Dillane.

Show Premise

John Amsterdam has been around for a long time…a very long time. He’s an immortal man who was blessed with the gift after saving a Native American woman during his tenure as a Dutch soldier in the year 1624. The prophecy of the spell foretold that he would be immortal until the day he meets his one true love, who will make him whole again and ready for mortality. In modern day, Amsterdam passes the time as an NYPD detective, using his centuries of knowledge to solve cases.

The series begins as he meets a new partner, Eva Marquez. Unlike many of his former partners, she is up to the task of working with a talented yet hard to handle rogue cop. While in pursuit of a perp, Amsterdam is shot down and wounded to the point of death, but once he is awakened again, he senses that he has been in the presence of his one true love, and so seeks her out. The show is part procedural, part character study, and part history lesson on the ever changing city of New York.

Series Run

FOX Network had picked up New Amsterdam for a 13 episode season with a Fall 2007 premiere that would’ve paired it with successful hospital procedural House, MD. However, the producers at the network changed their minds due to creative differences with the show’s creative team of Allan Loeb and Christian Taylor, as well as the all-encompassing battle with writers in general during the Writers Strike of 2007-2008. The problems in production caused FOX to delay the premiere during the mid-season, and halt production after eight episodes had completed. The series premiered in March to mixed reviews that did not bode well. FOX cancelled the show after the ratings dropped to less than half of its pilot episode.

New Amsterdam had a very interesting premise, one that had a lot of promise that it barely scratched the surface of in its initial run. It had a strong lead in Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and he’s very capable of performing the task of an immortal that has changed along with the times, as presented in flashbacks. It’s a premise that is fitting for an actor who wants to show range and variety. This series was created sometime after Lost, and it picked up some of the episodic structure of that series, presented in a very unique and focused way. The use of flashbacks revealed mythology of the character of John Amsterdam, which was compelling, and it was paralleled against the modern day narrative, which varied from procedural to serialized plot. The show was structured very intricately, and demanded the audience’s attention in a way similar to Lost, but perhaps the returns were not as rewarding for some viewers. Had the series continued, surely the balance would’ve been better made, as what the series was doing with its narrative was fairly new.

At the center of this series is that fantastical element that John Amsterdam is immortal, which is not necessarily a new concept, yet it is one that has not been as exploited as one might thinks. Immortality is often made in connection with Vampires, but in New Amsterdam’s case, it is a gift given to him by a Native American woman as a reward for saving her life. It’s romanticized with the idea of the ‘One True Love’, as he needs to find her in order to become mortal again. Although this idea isn’t bad, it still relies heavily on the chemistry between John Amsterdam and his one true love. One of the negative marks against the show is the failed chemistry between Coster-Waldau and Alexie Gilmore, as it brings the audience to think ‘Her?’, which is not the best thing for the central relationship. The counter to this is his partner in procedural solving, with whom John has better chemistry, without the sexual tension. John Amsterdam is partnered with Eva Marquez (Zuleikha Robinson) who, despite not getting a whole lot of screen time due to far too few episodes, makes a strong impression with the lead.

The series is mainly episodic, with serialized elements that were barely hinted at due to the short run, but it is clear that the creators had an understanding of the history of the character. Each episode functioned three-fold; the modern day narrative of the possibility that he has found his true love in Dr. Sara Dillane (Alexie Gilmore), the flashbacks, which function mostly to give depth to the character, and lastly the procedural case of the week, which tied into both the modern day story and the flashback.

Where the season leaves off isn’t on a cliffhanger or anything, yet it is still not satisfying, as this show was still finding out how to best tell these stories, so where things are left off feels like the beginning of more interesting stuff that is yet to come.

Preservation Claim

The reason why this series failed isn’t because of poor quality or lack of creativity; in fact, it had plenty of interesting aspects that could’ve made this series truly remarkable. The problem lies in the lack of faith from the network, as this show really needed much more time to develop and find its audience. This show is one that should be paid attention to and learned from, as the concepts on how to structure an episode and a season is very unique.

Allan Loeb went on to be a screenwriter on films such as The Dilemma, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and the upcoming San Andreas, starring Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino

Christian Taylor would continue to write for television, working on series such as MTV’s Teen Wolf and Star Wars: the Clone Wars. He also developed the recently premiered MTV series Eye Candy.

Nicholaj Coster-Waldau has continued his career in films and starred in a failed pilot called Virtuality before finding acclaim for his current role in HBO’s highly popular Game of Thrones.

Alexie Gilmore has appeared as a guest star on a variety of TV series, from House, MD to CSI to Nurse Jackie. Most recently, she had a recurring role on TNT drama series Legends.

Zuleikah Robinson went on to recur on Lost, and had roles in Homeland, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, and most recently on ABC’s Intelligence.

Availability

Unfortunately this series is currently unavailable on any streaming service or any home video media.
