Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays Jamie Lannister on the hit HBO series has confirmed that most of the leaks floating around the internet about the show are indeed real.
During an interview with The Huffington Post on the AOL BUILD series, the Game of Thrones actor revealed that the truth is out there if you look hard enough for it:
“What’s interesting, though, is every year there are huge spoilers online where people find out real stuff and they will post it, and you go, ‘Oh my God, they just spoiled the whole season online!’ But then, because there’s 10,000 other spoilers out there, they’re not real. It just gets lost in the shuffle. “So, it’s all out there by the way … if you can find it.”
One of the more popular theories at the moment is that Jamie will end up murdering his sister Cersei after her she used the cache of wildfire beneath the Sept of Baelor to take out her enemies along with the Sept itself resulting in her son King Tommen committing suicide and the Queen Mother assuming the Iron Throne. Jamie himself broke his oath to defend and obey the King many years before when he killed the Mad King, Aerys Targaryen, in order to stop him from unleashing the fury of that wildfire on King’s Landing to stop King Robert I Baratheon’s rebellion. The last we saw the Lannister, he stood by watching his sister’s coronation as he gave a look that left fans speculating that Jamie was going to kill the mother of his now dead children.
Coster-Waldau went on to add in his interview that all he was doing during that Game of Thrones scene was running through his grocery list in his head but that killing Cersei is not out of the question:
“People are really reading into that look … I was just going through my grocery list. I was very into the scene. It’s interesting, though, how much you read into a look like that, because, it’s like, ‘Oh, clearly he’s going to leave her now. There’s no question. This is it. This is reminding him why he killed the Mad King. Now he’s going to go and kill Cersei. There’s no question about it.’ And it might happen, who knows? I mean, I know, but …”
