EST 2011 | your ultimate source for all things nikolaj coster-waldau
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.

I’ve created a website dedicated to Nikolaj’s GAME OF THRONES co-star Richard Madden who played Robb Stark, the King of the North. My only shame is that I didn’t get the site up during Richard’s time on the show. I’m hoping you take some time and visit the site. Thanks in advance.



Well is anyone as pissed as I am over Nikolaj’s Emmy snub? This was HIS year this year. What with the emotional arc Jaime took and the fact it’s about time he got noticed just makes me so angry. I mean I thought the Critic’s TV Choice Awards was finally the right direction. Nary a Peter Dinklage mention. Of all the actors on this show the least good one is Dinklage. Yeah I know, I’m going to face some wrath for saying it but he puts on a fake accent and acts all clever but there are better actors on this show than he. I’d have to mention Charles Dance (Tywin), Stephen Dillane (Stannis), Jack Gleeson (Joffrey), Richard Madden (Robb), Michael McElhatton (Rose) and Alfie Allen (Theon) are far better actors who I’d have accepted over Dinklage. But this was supposed to be Nikolaj’s year. Sad the Emmy Board can’t get their favourites out of their asses and actually nominate those who truly deserve to be nominated. Yeah, I’m pissed. And the always amazing Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark) didn’t even get a mention. How disgusting.



There’s a promo up for next week’s finale of season 3’s GAME OF THRONES. The title of the episode is Mhysa. In Old Valeryan it means Mother. Just a word on episode nine. I’m so sad at losing Robb (Richard Madden). I’ve loved both the character and the actor since the beginning and this is like losing Sean Bean all over again. The one thing I have to say is that Richard Madden has made a fan out of me. I think he has a great future ahead of him. I’m wishing nothing but the best and hope to see him again soon, though I’ll miss him as Robb. And what can be said about Michelle Fairley? She’s a great lady and without a doubt one of the main reasons I think Richard was so good. Having her to bounce off of each week. I’m so thrilled to have gotten to know these two wonderful actors. Kudos to them for a great run.



My apologies for these being late. I had a ton of computer problems to deal with and the clip took longer than usual to convert and for some reason the screencaps wouldn’t upload into the right album. So! Here we are, finally! How did everyone enjoy the season two finale? I did. I think the one moment that just had me bawling were the scenes with Daenerys where she was being tempted in the Houses of the Undying with the return of Kahl Drogo and their child, The Stallion Who Will Mount The World. Emilia Clarke just broke my heart with her reaction to seeing Drogo. And what a shock to have Jason Momoa back, even for a little bit. I miss him so much. A lovely moment with Robb (Richard Madden) with him following his heart to marry Talisa (Oona Chaplin). And what about the scenes between Nikolaj and Gwendoline Christie as Brienne? What a treat to see these two trading barbs, though sometimes it doesn’t look too much like Brienne is liking Jaime too much. You don’t think? We got dragons, Direwolves and the White Walkers. Yeesh, those things are creepy. Poor Samwell (John Bradley). Between dragons on the south and dead crystalline things to the north, I’d say Westros is screwed. Stay tuned next year folks.



Here finally is the media for Nikolaj’s recent episode of GAME OF THRONES. Finally an episode with Jaime. I’d have to say he was in good form with Catelyn Stark (Michelle Fairley) in this episode. He also met Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie). I think I now know what Nikolaj meant when he said this was his best acting job to date. Jaime’s dialogue was perfect and Nikolaj delivered it pitch perfect. I loved his sarcasm with the “Dead Ned” part. I know it’s not nice but how Nikolaj performed it…sublime. A strong thank you has to go to Michelle Fairley for her strong performance as Catelyn. Without her I don’t think the scene would have been a potent. It was her reaction to Nikolaj that upped the “game” as it were. A special shout out too for four of Nikolaj’s co-stars. The first set of “thank yous” need to go to Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) and Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) for their excellence in the Harrenhal scenes. I’m loving their story so much. Anything to see Charles Dance is a good thing. Adding in Amazing Maisie just made it that much more special. The other kudos needs to go to Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) and Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister Baratheon) for their scene involving the discussion of Jaime. Honourable mention must also go to Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy) for his crazy turn. I really do think he’s come into his own. Problem is: I feel another death on the horizon. Yep, I think it’s going to be Theon.

According to Zap2it, GAME OF THRONES has been renewed for a third season. Here’s the press release:

HBO Renews ‘Game of Thrones’ for a Third Season

LOS ANGELES, April 10, 2012 – HBO has renewed GAME OF THRONES for a third season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.

“Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss raised our expectations for the second season – and then surpassed them,” said Lombardo. “We are thrilled by all the viewer and media support we’ve received for the series, and can’t wait to see what Dan and David have in store for next season.”

Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, GAME OF THRONES is an epic drama set in the world of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land whose summers and winters can last years. The Emmy®- and Golden Globe-winning fantasy series began its ten-episode second season Sunday, April 1 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), with other episodes debuting subsequent Sundays at the same time.

Among the early critical praise for the second season, Newsday called GAME OF THRONES “the best show on television,” while the Los Angeles Times termed the series “a cinematic feast” and “masterful.” The Wall Street Journal hailed the show as “magnificent” and USA Today called it “near perfection.”

According to early data, GAME OF THRONES’ season two premiere has already accumulated a gross audience of 8.3 million viewers, and is on track to easily surpass the season one average of 9.3 million viewers.

Season two cast members include: Emmy® and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage, Michelle Fairley, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Aidan Gillen, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Richard Madden, Maisie Williams, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Sophie Turner, Jack Gleeson and Alfie Allen.

Season two credits: The executive producers of GAME OF THRONES are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger; co-executive producers, George R.R. Martin, Vanessa Taylor, Alan Taylor, Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis; produced by Bernadette Caulfield.

Apparently the first episode of season two received a whopping 8.3 million viewers. An amazing feat for a cable show. With season two encompassing the entirety of A CLASH OF KINGS and part of A STORM OF SWORDS, looks like season three will cover the rest of the latter book. This will mean, hopefully, more Nikolaj. He’s been sadly missing this season so far. Yeah, I know Jaime spends most of his time as a prisoner of Robb Stark (Richard Madden), but I want more Jaime Lannister dammit!



I finally have the media up for the premiere of season two of GAME OF THRONES. The episode was The North Remembers. Not a lot of Nikolaj, but still enough to see Jaime hasn’t lost his bite. Good to see that despite Robb’s (Richard Madden) using Grey Wind as some sort of coercion, Jaime hasn’t changed. Loving the unkempt look on our guy. Is anyone as happy as I am this show is back? For the clip to play you have to let it load all the way. The format is in MP4 and it does take a little time to load. Sorry.

Day two of the GAME OF THRONES countdown continues with episode ten Fire And Blood. Here Nikolaj as Jaime Lannister is held captive by Robb Stark (Richard Madden) when after the news of the beheading of Ned Stark (Sean Bean) at King’s Landing reaches The North, Ned’s widow Catelyn (Michelle Fairley) confronts Jaime with a rock to the head. I loved the dialogue between Jaime and Catelyn, delivered so beautifully by Nikolaj and Michelle Fairley:

Jaime Lannister: If your gods are real, if they’re just, why is the world so full of injustice?

Catelyn Stark: Because of men like you.

Jaime Lannister: There are no men like me. Only me.

In the latest in the countdown to the season two premiere of GAME OF THRONES, we have episode nine Baelor. Nikolaj as Jaime Lannister is captured by Robb Stark’s (Richard Madden) army and taken hostage to use as a bargaining chip with King’s Landing in order to get Ned Stark (Sean Bean), Arya (Maisie Williams) and Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) returned. However, it is too late for Ned who has already been beheaded by the Little Caligula-like emperor Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) contrary to his mother Cersi’s (Lena Headey) wishes.

Today I have one of the best scenes in the series with Nikolaj as Jaime. In E1X03 Lord Snow Jaime is in the throne room at King’s Landing when Ned Stark (Sean Bean) comes in after a long ride to find Jaime sitting on the steps leading up to the Iron Throne. Here Jaime tells Ned what happened to his father and brother at the hands of The Mad King Aerys Targaryen. I’m going to include the main portion of the dialogue because I love the interplay between Nikolaj and Sean who is always good in whatever he does. More after the cut.

Jaime Lannister: It must be strange for you… coming into this room. I was standing right here when it happened. He was very brave, your brother. Your father too. They didn’t deserve to die like that. Nobody deserves to die like that.
Eddard Stark: But you just stood there and watched.

Jaime Lannister: Five hundred men just stood there and watched. All the great knights of the Seven Kingdoms. You think anyone said a word, lifted a finger? No, Lord Stark. Five hundred men and this room was silent as a crypt. Except for the screams, of course, and the mad king laughing. And later… when I watched the mad king die, I remembered him laughing as your father burned… it felt like justice.

Eddard Stark: Is that what you tell yourself at night? You’re a servant of justice? That you were avenging my father when you shoved your sword in Aerys Targaryen’s back?
Jaime Lannister: Tell me: if I’d stabbed the mad king in the belly instead of the back, would you admire me more?

Eddard Stark: You served him well when serving was safe.

Ned’s arrogance will certainly come back to haunt him in episode nine, Baelor with deadly consequences for all involved including Arya (Maisie Williams), Sansa (Sophie Turner), Catelyn (Michelle Fairley) and Robb (Richard Madden).
