Nikolaj Coster-Waldau chats about bears, missing limbs and which “Thrones” character would win in a sword fight.
After losing a hand, battling a bear, and experiencing a host of other ups and downs, it’s difficult to pinpoint one key moment for Jaime Lannister in this season’sGame of Thrones.
But for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, it’s always been that “scene in the bathtub” – where his character reveals to Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) his Kinglsayer origin story.
It’s a moment Coster-Waldau had waited for since signing on for the role. In early meetings when he was offered the part, the Danish actor was presented with the basic outline of the very meaty arc his character would have – should Thrones make it to season three.
