Game of Thrones - Season 2 - Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Interview

Thanks to andiminga for the heads up.

Fire and Blood: Hi, Nikolaj! Thanks for taking the time to talk to Winter Is Coming!

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: My pleasure. And thank you for keeping me up to date on the latest trailers, info, casting etc.

FaB: It’s what we do! Glad to know you’re one of our readers! [More proof of this later, Gatewatch faithful!] First, most importantly, how is your family?

NCW: Family is great, thank you for asking.

FaB: When it was first announced that you would play Jaime Lannister, I was extremely excited, because I had seen your performance in Virtuality, and absolutely loved it. I was shocked that wasn’t turned into a regular series. What happened? Was this just a case of FOX being FOX? Too quick to hit the “eject” button, so to speak?

NCW: Virtuality would have been perfect on a cable network. I know for a fact that Fox really wanted to make it work but it just wasn’t to be. I am aware of all the ‘Fox being Fox’ theories, but my experience with those guys are that they are passionate about making television. At the end of the day if they dont believe in the show they have to let it go… I was very proud to be a part of Virtuality and I too think it could have been a great show, but such is life.

FaB: Of course I’m thrilled we got you for Game of Thrones! But even then I was concerned, since I knew that Jaime practically disappears for all of book 2. I thought, Why would a guy this talented agree to take a year off? Needless to say, they’re not leaving you out of the story at all, and it looks like they’ve even added special stuff just for you. Was there ever a point where they discussed leaving you out of season 2?

NCW: If they did discuss leaving me out then they never told me about it. Way back, when we first met I was told that in season 2, if ever we got there, I would only work in 2 eps so I knew in advance. As it turned out it is a little more than that, and the scenes I have were just brilliant, one scene in particular. I wish I could tell you about it… because in a weird cryptic way it relates to you guys! :-)

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
