SCIFI NOW MAGAZINE: Game Of Thrones Season 2: Jaime Lannister’s best scene “isn’t in the book”

Game Of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on Jamie Lannister’s role in Season 2, being Prince Charming, and working with David Benioff and Dan Weiss

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who plays the somewhat sinister Jamie Lannister is notoriously tight-lipped on the subject of Game Of Thrones Season 2, but he did let loose one telling snippet – his favourite episode is Episode 7, and when pushed for details on the basis that everyone’s read the books, he countered, “I don’t think it’s in the books! I can’t really say any more.”

Speaking exclusively to SciFiNow, Coster-Waldau revealed that he’s given some input into the role of the literal golden boy, but not much.

I don’t kid myself,” said the actor frankly. “David Benioff and Dan Weiss, they’re so brilliant that it would be absurd to try and suggest changes. I talk about it, but I don’t come with little handwritten dialogues that I suggest.

Talking more about the character, he continued, “He’s not evil, I don’t see him as evil. He does some acts that are quite horrible, but there’s a good reason behind his actions.."
