Jaime Lannister may have chosen Cersei on “Game of Thrones,” but the actor who played him is clearly Team Brienne.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who portrayed one part of television’s ickiest couple, recently shot a video of his Los Angeles home for Architectural Digest (above), which was published Tuesday. In the video, you can see a doll of Brienne of Tarth (played by Gwendoline Christie) proudly displayed in his living room on a chair.
“It was made by a fan,” Coster-Waldau said in the video of the doll, picking it up and then sitting on the chair.
Then, in typical Jaime fashion, he adds: “And I was supposed to give it to Gwendoline Christie … anyway, this chair is really comfortable!”
In the show, Coster-Waldau’s amoral yet misunderstood Jaime broke fans’ hearts when he left the honorable Brienne — and his road toward redemption — to be with his malicious sister-lover, Ceresi.
Here’s hoping that somewhere Christie is watching this video and responds to it a little like this:
REAL LIFE. REAL NEWS. REAL VOICES.
