The cast of ‘Game of Thrones’ has been notorious for keeping their lips tight on plot information in relation to the series finale, but this latest from its star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau may be the most teasing of all teasers.
The actor, who plays Jaime Lannister on the HBO fantasy series, has assured fans of the show that “all the pieces fit” in the end.
“I read it, and I wrote [creators] Dan [“D.B.” Weiss] and David [Benioff] and said I don’t think they could have done a better job,” Colster-Waldau told TheWrap, while discussing his recent Emmy nomination for the role.
“I mean, when I read it — I’ve spent so many years working on this and been guessing and trying to figure out how this will end — and when I read it, some of the parts of it I’d get, and other parts of it were just completely shocking and surprising.”
“And it wasn’t, there were none of those horrible — you know shows where it’s a murder mystery and at the very last minute you find out it doesn’t make sense?” he added. “But here all the pieces fit into this massive jigsaw puzzle.”
The actor previously spoke about his character leaving sister Cersei at the end of the show's last season, and pondered on what could be his character’s next move.
The eight, and final, season of ‘Game of Thrones’ wrapped shooting in July and airs on HBO and Sky Atlantic sometime in 2019.
