Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Almost Spoiled 'Game of Thrones' Season 7 Plot Detail!

Game of Thrones season seven won’t be debuting until July, but Nikolaj Coster-Waldau recently gave an interview where he almost spoiled something about Jaime Lannister (his role) and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).

“That’s what I like about Jaime: he’s lost his arm and just his presence used to be enough to sway people, and he doesn’t have that anymore—but he’s still got his mind. He’s not like his sister and brother, but he’s been on the battlefield his whole life, and knows about people’s weaknesses and loving someone unconditionally—because he loves his sister unconditionally,” Nikolaj said to Daily Beast. “Plus, there are no other suitors. Well, that’s not true… but he has to step up and take his father’s place. Wow, I was about to reveal something from Season 7 and thought, ‘What am I doing?’”

So, does Cersei have a new suitor this season?! It looks like we’ll have to wait and see.

Continuing to speak on season seven, he said, “But it is very complex, and the more you dig into it, the more complex it gets. We’re so deep into this story and getting into the endgame now so for all of us who have been on the whole journey, you really want to get it right. Every scene and every moment feels ridiculously important. Early on in Season 7 I just had to let it go because I was trying to understand way too much.”

Finn Jones Talks Relating to 'Troubled Hero' Iron Fist & 'Mad, Mad Trip' on 'Game of Thrones'

Finn Jones is stylish (and super hot) in his latest shoot for Interview Magazine!

Here’s what the 28-year-old actor – whose Netflix series Iron Fist premieres tomorrow (March 17) – had to share with the mag:

On playing Iron Fist‘s Danny Rand: “I remember just sitting there and thinking, ‘F–k, this is the one.’ It was a deep feeling. I was really into Danny’s more spiritual side, his strength, and the fact that he was a hero, but a troubled hero. All of those things fitted with where I was in my life.”

On becoming an actor: “At first I didn’t know what an actor was, I thought it was an acrobat. I saw acrobats at the circus and I thought that was interesting. In my head, that was what I imagined I wanted to be when I grew up. Then I realized what an actor was, and I’ve gravitated to it ever since. It’s strange because I’ve never really enjoyed being in the limelight. My parents aren’t from a theatrical background. It isn’t even that my parents grew up watching lots of films and television shows and I watched that and was like, ‘Ah, that’s what I want to do when I’m older.’ It was something a lot more abstract and a lot more subconscious. I don’t understand.”

On Game of Thrones: “I knew it was an HBO show, so I knew it was going to be big, but if you’d have told me the day I got cast that I’d be on that show for six years, that that show would allow me to travel the world, that it was going to become such a huge cultural phenomenon as it has done – I don’t think anybody working on that show could possibly have envisioned the success it has gone on to have. Shows like that, stories like that, only really come around once every 10, 15 years. I can’t remember the last time a show has really caught the imagination that way. Maybe Star Wars back in the ’70s. It was a mad, mad trip being on that show for six years. Everyone was really tight. I made some friends on that show that will be friends for life. I’m very grateful to the show for bringing such an amazing group of people together.”

“Season seven has much more ambition,” Kit said. “There are less episodes this year, so they spent more money on those episodes. So, the whole scale of it is up.”

The next season of Game of Thrones will only have seven episodes, instead of its usual 10.

As the show nears its end – there will only be one more season after season seven – Kit really wants the show to go out “with a bang.”

“That has to happen at the end of Thrones, this season and next season,” Kit said. “It has to go into places TV hasn’t been.”
