Currently being seen as Ser Jaime Lannister on the hugely successful HBO series Game of Thrones, Nikolaj has a varied film and television history.

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 gave an interview to IGN about episode five of GAME OF THRONES and the revelation of Cersei’s (Lena Headey) pregnancy, Maggy The Frog’s prophecy and the Volonquar theory. Nikolaj also discussed his film SHOT CALLER where he plays a man who enters the prison system. The film is getting rave reviews for Nikolaj. SHOT CALLER will be released this Friday. Link to the article is below.



I have both screencaps and stills from this episode. Overall an amazing episode once again from Nikolaj as Jaime. The standout scenes were when Cersei (Lena Headey) told Jaime of her pregnancy, then the amazing scene between Jaime and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) in the vaults of King’s Landing. Honourable mention has to go to Jerome Flynn as Bronn. He’s always a standout when he’s on. Loved him calling Jaime a “cunt” and that no one else is allowed to kill Jaime but him. I loved the rest of the episode, particularly the parts with Jon (Kit Harington) and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Drogon, and then the ending with the “Magnificent Seven” with Jon, Tormund (Kristofer Hivju), Gendry (Joe Dempsie), Beric Dondarrion (Richard Dormer), Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen), Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye) and The Hound (Rory McCann). I couldn’t decide which image I would use in this post as Nikolaj was amazing throughout, but I thought I’d pick the one where Jaime finds out from Cersei of the pregnancy. I don’t know I just love the vulnerability Nikolaj displays at that moment.



Not only do we have a promo for next week, but episode title as well. Next week’s episode is titled The Spoils of War, and like this week looks to be another great episode. Not sure what Jaime is doing in this promo but I’m hoping it leads to Cersei (Lena Headey) and he falling out. On the heels of Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) and Sansa (Sophie Turner) reuniting, we get a glimpse of Arya (Maisie Williams) finally arriving at Winterfell. Ah those feels just keep coming. Episode three screencaps to come.



GAME OF THRONES is at the San Diego Comic Con this weekend and HBO dropped another trailer for us. Here we can see Jaime with Cersei (Lena Headey) in a very Jaime/Cersei position. Then we see Jaime shown from behind strolling into what looks to be the courtyard at Highgarden where Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg) fled after her goodbye with Margaery (Natalie Dormer) early in season six. Then finally we see Jaime on his horse reviewing Lannister troops on the battlefield. My guess this is outside Highgarden, or preparing to go against Daenerys’ (Emilia Clarke) on the battlefield. All in all looks like our Nikolaj will be getting some really good scenes this year. I was going to provide some screencaps of those scenes, but I thought I’d just let the trailer speak for itself, also the featured post image is from Jaime’s review of the troops.



We get to see a bit of Jaime in the episode two promo. If you look at the overhead shot of the throne room and Cersei (Lena Headey) sitting on the throne with our Nikolaj standing to the left of her. This episode is titled Stormborn.



What did we think? Did we like it? Come on, ya know you did. I was truly satisfied with the season seven premiere. There wasn’t anything that I could complain about, in fact the show was excellent. Looks like Jaime is keeping it real for Cersei (Lena Headey). I loved how Nikolaj brought the whole thing down to it’s base level for Cersei’s benefit. And the expressions on Jaime’s face when Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Asbæk) was offering himself to Cersei was too funny. All in all an excellent premiere.



HBO has released a second trailer to season seven. Here we get to see more of Nikolaj as Jaime. He’s not looking too happy this year what with Cersei (Lena Headey) taking the throne and killing those in the Sept and crowning herself queen. I’ve done a screengrab of one of Nikolaj’s scenes. In the featured image above it looks like he’s on a field where in the previous trailer we saw Drogon with Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) on his back flying over the Dothraki blood riders and the Unsullied. Here’s hoping our Kingslayer remains alive this season. You might also notice a new thing to the site and that is a countdown clock to the season seven premiere. It seems so far away yet it’s less than a month. Now a note about what’s been going on with the site. A few days ago I noticed my page rankings had dropped and I couldn’t figure out why. Looking into the issue I found that the site had some what could be termed as malicious code inserted into only a select number of my pages. This made me have to take some draconian steps and completely delete the main site’s files and start again, thankfully saving the posts, pages and other needed things to begin again. By the Grace of the Seven the gallery and the press section remained untouched so that’s why they remained up. I’ve scanned the site many times using at least a dozen online tools and submitted a report to Google who has pronounced the site clear. I just wanted to tell you that I mean to keep the site clean for you to visit and get all your Nikolaj news. Thanks for understanding why the main site was down. Now without further delay….. #WinterIsHere



I thought I’d revisit this touching ballad from Jaime to Cersei (Lena Headey) and Nikolaj’s heartfelt rendition of Coldplay’s Closer to Home from the “cancelled” GAME OF THRONES musical. Without further adieu here is Nikolaj’s “beautiful” ballad….. This of course in preparation for season seven.



He just might be. According to an interview with a Reddit user Jaime Lannister played by our own Nikolaj just might be the mythical hero. Here is the Reddit Post where the anonymous poster discusses why he believes Jaime is not only the Valonqar, but also Azor Ahai. I’ve read through it and it’s a pretty good theory. Most of the videos I’ve seen on Youtube, the creators want to say that Jaime will take his own life after taking Cersei’s (Lena Headey). I’ve stated time and time again that is pretty short sighted not to have Jaime in the War to Come. Jaime’s skills are highly needed. I think Jon (Kit Harington) will need Jaime and that will fulfill the Azor Ahai prophecy.

As Game of Thrones enters the home stretch with its final two seasons, prophecies about its endgame are becoming increasingly important — and the biggest one might change Jaime Lannister’s role in the story, thanks to the dictionary. Not Merriam-Webster, though. It comes down to some mixed-up Valyrian words.

The Prince That Was Promised, also known as Azor Ahai, is a legendary savior from hundreds of years before the main events of the show. He’s supposed to be reborn to save the world from darkness. Melisandre has mentioned this several times, as she originally thought Stannis was Azor Ahai reborn. Sam and Gilly are also reading about Azor Ahai in photos from Season 7. Of course, the more he’s referenced, the more it makes you wonder who Azor Ahai reborn will be. Most people think it will be Jon, or possibly Daenerys. Since they’re the two characters who have been “reborn” in the most literal ways, this makes sense.

But as one fan on Reddit points out, there’s an unexpected compelling argument for Jaime Lannister as this legendary savior. When Paste Magazine interviewed the anonymous Reddit user on Wednesday, they said:

So, the basic gist is that there is a seriously problematic translation error that, once cleared up, will shed light on the identity of the hero… According to the Valyrian dictionary, Valyrian words for lord and light are aeksio and onos. However, Valyrian words for gold and hand are aeksion and ondos. Just as we might suspect, The Lord of Light is a farce. Jaime Lannister—Gold Hand—is the hero of legend and prophecy.

If the story takes this route, that presents a fascinating angle on fate, religion, and prophecy in the world of Game of Thrones. The story has always danced around presenting the gods as entities that characters believe in versus presenting them as literal parts of the world. When Melisandre resurrected Jon Snow in Season 6, that seemed to confirm that there was something to the Lord of Light business after all. But as this fan suggests, the Lord of Light could be conflated with Azor Ahai. Melisandre thought she was a fraud after Stannis died in Season 5; she got her faith back after resurrecting Jon in Season 6. But if Jaime is the prophetic hero, the true answer could be that she’s both.

The original Reddit post draws parallels between the hero Azor Ahai laboring to forge his legendary sword and Jaime Lannister laboring to shed his “Kingslayer” persona, thus experiencing rebirth.

Additionally, it argues that just as Azor Ahai had to kill his love, Nissa Nissa, Jaime will have to kill Cersei. Even if Jon and Daenerys bang, it’s unlikely they have enough time to develop the kind of deep love required for a sacrifice. With a second glance at the dictionary, then, Jaime Lannister just became the most likely contender to save the world.

We finally have a full fledged trailer for season 7 of GAME OF THRONES. We have at least three scenes with Jaime and Nikolaj, though the most impressive one is the one in the map room where Jaime and Cersei (Lena Headey) are standing. Amazing so far. I’m including all of Nikolaj’s scenes from it for you since the trailer goes by sort of quick. Enjoy.
