Just like any fan, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is updated with the theories and discussions in the “Game of Thrones” fandom. During his interview with InStyle, the Danish actor who plays Jaime Lannister on hit HBO show shared his thoughts on the upcoming “Game of Thrones” Season 8. With the current theories regarding his character, which ones does he think are good?

On Cersei’s pregnancy and death

The 47-year-old knows that the fans are suspicious about Cersei’s (Lena Headey) pregnancy. According to the actor, during the time that he read his script; he was sure that the current Queen of Westeros was not lying.

However, after all the events that happened in “Game of Thrones” season 7; he’s not so sure anymore. After all, Cersei’s manipulating skills have skyrocketed this season. She deceived Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) about her allegiance and is planning to sabotage the fight against the Night King. Coster-Waldau thinks she might be deceiving them all.

Aside from Cersei’s pregnancy, he also talked about the fan theories regarding the latter’s death. One of the most popular theories in the “Game of Thrones” fandom is Cersei’s death.

According to many fans, they think that Jaime might be the one to kill Cersei in the series.

When she was still a girl, Cersei received a prophecy from a witch named Maggy the Frog. Other than the fate of her three children, she was also prophesized to be killed by the “valonquar.” In High Valerian, the word means “little brother.” In the story, Cercei has two little brothers; Jaime and Tyrion. Tyrion can be a good bet, but the Danish actor thinks that it would be more telling if Jaime was the one to kill his older sister.

After all, Jaime was the one that killed the Mad King Aerys II; so it would make sense if he’s the one slays the Mad Queen as well.

Even though the theory sounds fair, Cersei is pregnant with their child. If Jaime were to kill her, it would be like that scene in the Red Wedding where they killed Robb Stark’s pregnant wife. That ending would be bad for the characters so Coster Waldau prays it doesn’t happen.

Jaime and Cersei's relationship

The last scenes of Jaime and Cersei together this season were heartbreaking for the two.

After learning of her sister’s true plans, Jaime decided to finally abandon her. During this encounter, Cercei threatened him; almost commanding the Mountain to kill Jaime. However, the knight didn’t believe her and walked away unscathed, leaving the Mad Queen alone once and for all.

This scene was clearly a turning point for the two and Coster-Waldau agrees. When Jaime said he didn’t believe her, he thinks that the character means he doesn’t believe in their relationship anymore. However, despite this ending, the Danish actor thinks that the two will always be connected.
