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 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 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 …”
The series stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Aidan Gillen, Liam Cunningham, Carice van Houten, Rory McCann, Maisie Williams, Conleth Hill, Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Kristofer Hivju, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Jerome Flynn, Iain Glen, and Hannah Murray.
Game of Thrones season 7 premieres July 16, 2017.
‘Game Of Thrones’: Everything We Know So Far About Season 7
In Westeros, everybody knows “winter is coming.” But in our world, it’s summer we have to watch out for, because that is when Game of Thrones returns to HBO.
Only 13 episodes remain before Thrones exits stage left. Seven of those episodes comprise season 7 and six is confirmed to be the count for the eighth and final season next year. Season 6 left off with two of its biggest and most consequential episodes – “Battle of the Bastards,” which depicted the most expensive battle scene yet filmed for the fantasy drama, and “The Winds of Winter,” which takes it title from the unpublished sixth novel of the planned seven that comprise the show’s basis, author George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire, and featured the largest slaughter of named characters in the show’s bloody history.
Now, the game has been reset yet again. Jon Snow has been crowned King in the North by his countrymen, Cersei has seized the Iron Throne in the South, and Daenerys Targaryen sails to Westeros to reclaim it with a massive, multicultural invasion force. And all the while, the Night King, his fellow White Walkers, and their zombie army descend on the Wall, seeking to bring it down and spread wintry death to all of Westeros. After years of war and desolation, can the people of the continent come together in time to avert apocalypse?
We’ll find out come summer. Click Next to scroll through Westeros, from Beyond-the-Wall all the way to aptly-named Oldtown in the south.
