Come sit on OUR throne, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau!
Up there with Khal Drago and John Snow, Jaime Lannister is one of the hottest men to ever grace the seven kingdoms!
And luckily for us, Nik's recently dished on the goodies we can expect in Season 3!
Here's what he has to say on everyone's favorite bad boy:
ON JAIME'S FATE IN SEASON 3
"We're shooting season three now and it's going very well. Jaime Lannister, my character, he has a great year, it's a great season for him. He's out of prison and he's on the move."
ON THE FAN RESPONSE TO JAIME
"It's been really surprising to me. I was worried after season one that maybe people would hate the guy, but it seems that everyone likes to hate him in a way. I've been really relieved. We tried to… have him be [not just] a horrible, horrible man, but also to show that there is also some kind of wit, even if it's a dry and arrogant wit. There is something going on and it's not just about taking pleasure from pushing kids out windows and tormenting people, there is more to him than that. People I've spoken to are very curious to see what happens to him."
ON PLAYING THE SEXY BAD BOY
"You get to break the rules, and that's always fun. But actually the best so-called bad guy parts are the ones where you can still somehow identify with their choices, even if they are outrageous. What's great about Game of Thrones is they change the perspective, the POV, all the time. So you will have one story told by one character and you'll go, 'Oh my God, horrible', and then maybe the season after you have the same story told but from the person you thought was just the most horrible, vile creature. Now you actually see his point of view, which might differ quite substantially, and that's human nature in a way."
BUT WE WANT MOORRRE,
For example… will you ever shut that rat-trap of a boy-king of yours up???
