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.

What did I say about stuff coming fast and furiously? Yep. More stuff……

   



I thought, “What the hell” and decided to add Nikolaj’s scenes from the new trailer to the gallery. That way you can see them and him. Enjoy. Also I wanted to let you know that I’ll be adding a lot of articles to the Press as well as the scans to the Gallery. Considering the breakneck speed at which things are appearing, there will be a whole whack of posts coming. Please bookmark us and check back often.



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.

Some new additions to both the gallery and press sections. I’ve uploaded three new articles for the upcoming season seven of GAME OF THRONES featuring both Nikolaj and the show. I’m not going to put each one individually, rather, links to the sections where you can find them. The items in the press section are the transcriptions pf the magazine scans in the gallery.Click on the camera to go to the gallery, or click on the newspaper to go to the 2017 article index in the press section.



As the title says I’ve completely overhauled the press section of the site. It’s a little more neatly organized and ready for new press scans I’m planning on taking the weekend to add. Most of course are from GAME OF THRONES upcoming season seven debut on July 16. To get there just go up to the navigation menu and hit the press link.



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.



Nikolaj was on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon last night promoting his new Netflix film SMALL CRIMES where he plays the part of Joe Denton, a former cop turned bad guy. Well he talked about how his wife, Nukaka, does not watch GAME OF THRONES and how on the set of SMALL CRIMES filming in Montreal, Canada it was hot. They all had small trailers due to the small production budget, but when the air conditioning in his trailer broke down he called upon the producers to fix it. After some pressure on the locals who provided the trailers, Nikolaj received a large VIP trailer, drawing some ire from the rest of the cast. Too funny. Here is a clip from Youtube. I’ll try to find the interview and post.



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.
