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.

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.



We’ve come to yet another end of a season of GAME OF THRONES. It did look a little close there for Jaime going up against Cersei (Lena Headey). I truly thought he’d loose his head at the hands of Gregor Clegane/The Mountain (Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson) after he called Cersei’s bluff. At least he’s finally free of her. Now he heads North to join the Great War for the Dawn. The episode was as usual pro forma for this show, particularly season six and seven. The writing, acting, directing, everything has been above par. If you don’t mind I’m going to give a special call out to the series composer, Ramin Djwadi. What a stirring score he’s composed for both this and last season. If they say music is the soul, than Ramin Djawadi is just that, the soul of this show. I thought for the featured image for this post I’d use one of Jaime’s final moments in this episode. The scene where he is making his exit from King’s Landing and snow begins to fall on the capital. Nikolaj as usual nailed it. Just beautiful. I’m also including season eight’s soundtrack in this posting.

Going forward here’s what I hope to accomplish before season eight’s debut. I’m hoping to get Nikolaj’s work from season four, five and six done in order to prepare for season eight. What I want to do is when season eight airs, is to get up to the final episode in the series and that be the last post for Nikolaj’s time on GAME OF THRONES with the exception of whatever comes after the show with regards to home video and soundtrack releases. The thought of that will be sad indeed.



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.

    



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.



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.



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.
