There is one "Game of Thrones" actor who is not in favor of filming multiple endings for the finale of season 8. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on the show, said that this move won't be a good and practical decision. The actor expressed his sentiments in an interview with Marie Claire. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau said he does not believe that HBO and the executive producers will go with this plan simply because it will be too costly.

"Do you think that's true? It seems really stupid to me," the star playing Jaime Lannister told the magazine. "You're not going to waste $100,000 a day to shoot something you're not going to use. It's not going to happen."

The actor, however, admitted that he has yet to the get the scripts for season 8, so he's not yet certain about what HBO and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss would actually do.

Why film multiple endings

HBO programming president, Casey Bloys, revealed via The Morning Call that filming multiple endings for "Game of Thrones" season 8 is necessary. Such a highly popular series with resourceful fans need to pull the plug on leaks and spoilers.

"They’re going to shoot multiple versions so that there’s no real definitive answer until the end," Bloys said.

It's not like "Game of Thrones" will be the first show to make this move.
