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.

Well Nikolaj has shown up…. In Ireland. Ahead of the “blistering snow storm” that is heading toward Ireland and Britain, Nikolaj who was attending the Dublin Film Festival for his current film 3 THINGS, joked about the insanity hitting the British Isles with regards to the dusting of snow they’ve received from this “Armageddon” like storm. The “Beast from the East” as it’s been dubbed is causing havoc in supermarkets in Ireland and Britain including Tescos have had their bread shelves dry up ahead of Storm Emma. Given that Nikolaj lives in Copenhagen and Greenland, he thinks it’s hilarious the amount of silliness from just snow falling from the sky. He was also asked about season eight and if he could share anything, he of course was tight lipped. Nothing from our Kingslayer. 3 THINGS also stars Birgitte Hjort Sørensen. You might remember her from an earlier season of GAME OF THRONES where she played the part of Wildling Karsi who was at Hardhome when the Army of the Dead attacked while Jon (Kit Harington) and Eddison Tollett (Ben Crompton) tried to move them south of the Wall. Six degrees indeed.

Game of Thrones star tells Ireland ‘winter isn’t coming’

Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has said he is bemused by Ireland’s bread-buying panic ahead of the ‘Beast from the East’, telling RTÉ Entertainment that “you’d think that Armageddon is coming”.

The Danish star travelled down from the Game of Thrones set in Belfast on Tuesday for the Irish premiere of his new film 3 Things at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival.

Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment on the red carpet in Cineworld, Coster-Waldau refused to be drawn on any details about the HBO fantasy show’s final season (those NDA agreements must be fierce), but joked that overcoming the inclement weather could be his biggest challenge to returning to the set of the series.

He didn’t seem to think “winter is coming” here, anyway.

“I think the biggest challenge is going to be getting up to Belfast,” Coster-Waldau said with a laugh.

“Looking at the news in Ireland you’d think that Armageddon is coming. ‘They’re out of bread in Tesco’s!’

“What’s going on with you people?! There’s a bit of snow coming from the sky and you’re panicking!”

In the new thriller 3 Things, the 47-year-old plays a criminal who is negotiating the terms of a witness protection deal with the police and demands three things from them in order to sign off on the agreement.

Judging by the trailer, it’s another complex, layered role for the actor who doesn’t shy away from characters who exist in the grey area between hero and villain.

“I think most good characters, most of us do have both [hero and villain] in us,” he said.

“You know, when people say, ‘Jaime Lannister is the most horrible thing’; I say, ‘Well the thing is, Game of Thrones started with him pushing a kid out a window’.

“If it started with him killing the Mad King and saving millions of people he would have been a hero.”

Coster-Waldau has worked extensively in Northern Ireland since Game of Thrones began in 2011. He also filmed the drama A Thousand Times Good Night in 2013 in Dublin.

Is this the last we’ll see of him here?

“I hope not,” he replied. “I hope I get to come back, so I hope all the tax incentives keep coming!”

With not much of anything coming out of either Ireland where the vast majority of GAME OF THRONES is filmed, to Dubrovnik where most of the King’s Landing scenes have been filmed over the last seven seasons, we finally have a nugget of something…anything for us to salivate over. Collider.com has a teaser poster from the final season. It doesn’t say much of anything, but right now I would bet we’re thirsty for anything. News of where Nikolaj is, is pretty non-existent. There were reports about a month ago several cast members including Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane), Iain Glen (Ser Jorah Mormont), Rory McCann (Sandor “The Hound” Clegane) and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) were seen in Iceland where we know all of the scenes North of the Wall are filmed. Here’s hoping for more information as 2018 moves like a snail on pavement toward season eight’s premiere in 2019. At least we have a teaser poster.



This interview is too cute. Here Nikolaj talks about his new film SHOT CALLER and being in prison. Then he gives his views on various GAME OF THRONES characters and how they’d fair in prison. Included are Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Bronn (Jerome Flynn) and Jaime’s sister Cersei (Lena Headey). His answers are quite funny. Enjoy.



New stills from the season seven finale of GAME OF THRONES titled The Dragon and the Wolf. My feeling is the title refers more to Lyanna Stark (Aisling Franciosi) and Rhaegar Targaryen (Actor To Be Named Later) than it does Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Danaerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Though of course the title is more than applicable to Jon and Dany. In the stills though looks like there is some “marital” strife between Jaime and Cersei (Lena Headey). I’m hoping the spoilers I read about Jaime are true ….. shhhhhhh! Won’t mention them here. According to our Nikolaj filming begins on season eight starting in October and he said he’ll be reporting to set. That is very good news in that Jaime will survive this season. I’m hoping too he’s around for the War for the Dawn. I hope the foreshadowing of one line in Spoils of War bode well, I hope, for Jaime’s survival until the end of the series where Bronn (Jerome Flynn) said to Jaime as the Dothraki were making their run at the Lannister/Tarley forces about being a good commander. Lines like that aren’t just thrown out there willy nilly. Fingers crossed.

    



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.



My apologies for being late with these, but I had a big day yesterday and today is a holiday here in Canada and I had a lot of things to do to get ready for today. Here we are though. This episode was just freaking amazing. With the long-awaited meeting between Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Danaerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) to Euron Greyjoy’s (Pilou Asbæk) “gift” to Cersei (Lena Headey), to the attack on Casterley Rock by The Unsullied, this episode just ticked all the boxes in terms of lining up all the ducks. The best scene though was with our Nikolaj and Dame Diana Rigg as Lady Olenna Tyrell in her final “fuck you” to the Lannisters in the face of her imminent demise. What a tour-de-force for both Nikolaj and Diana. The dialogue, staging, and the incredible score from Ramin Djwadi and The Rains of Castamere refrain just sewed this episode up into a tidy package this Nikolaj fan and GAME OF THRONES fan could want. Thank you Dan and Dave for such an amazing episode and to Nikolaj and Diana for your performances.



Another interview with the cast from GAME OF THRONES including Nikolaj, Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth), Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion), Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand), and Kit Harington (Jon Snow). Here the cast talk about their “enemies” Jaime with Cersei, Ser Davos with Melissandre, Bronn with Jaime, and Jon with Sansa.



Nikolaj as well as most of the cast of GAME OF THRONES including Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Kit Harington (Jon Snow), Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Bran Stark), Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos Seaworth), Nathalie Emmanuelle (Missandei), Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm), Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), Indira Varma (Ellaria Sand), John Bradley (Samwell Tarley), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy), Aidan Gillan (Petyr “Littlefinger” Bailish), Conelith Hill (Varys), Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Hannah Murray (Gilly), and Richard Dormer (Beric Dondarrion) all sat down with ABC’s Nightline to discuss season seven. Here’s the video.



We finally have the first three episode titles for GAME OF THRONES season seven. The first two concern more Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) returning to Westros and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) arriving at Dragonstone to confer with Dany, so there’s nothing of note for Jaime. However, episode three features Cersei (Lena Headey) and some issues between she and Jaime. Fingers crossed he’s starting to fall out of love with her.

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.
