GAME OF THRONES star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has defended the show’s incest storyline between his character Jaime Lannister and sister Cersei, played by Lena Headey.
The 48-year-old actor spoke to Men’s Health magazine as fans eagerly anticipate the finale season.
Nikolaj told the publication: “I think most people have at least been attracted to someone you shouldn’t be.
“Not your sister, but someone you really shouldn’t fall in love with. Like your best friend’s girlfriend.”
Jaime went on to praise the connection written between his character and Lena Headey’s tyrannical Cersei Lannister.
He explained: “It’s one of the few true love stories in Game of Thrones – Jaime is dedicated to this woman.”
With the Game of Thrones cast taking every precaution not to reveal spoilers for the highly-anticipated finale, Nikolaj joked about the fate of fan-favourite Jaime Lannister.
He teased that the soldier would regrow his arm after previously losing it in battle.
Nikolaj teased: “He grows out his arm. It grows back, but not in the way you think . It’s a claw!”
As the final season approaches, Kit Harington revealed how he “cried his eyes out” when reading the script for the last Game of Thrones episode.
The actor – who plays Jon Snow in the hit series – is even keeping the ending a secret from wife and former co-star Rose Leslie.
He added: ““She’s guessed, she has guessed every single possible outcome bar the one that happens!”
Kit previously admitted that filming all the final episodes over 10 months left him “broken”.
He said: “I don’t know if we were crying because we were sad it was ending or if we were crying because it was so f***ing tiring. We were sleep deprived.”
