So two years ago, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on Game Of Thrones of course, gave an interview to Conan O’Brien in which he discussed the show’s—and books’—rabid fans. He gets into what it’s like teasing people with made-up spoilers, and—well, just look:
HOLY SHIT DID HE SPOIL THE ENDING OF SEASON 7 JUST THEN?!
Now, obviously, no. There’s no way that Jaime Lannister would have the script that far in advance so there’s no way he even knew the significance of what he was saying, and, yes, if he had actually spoiled it he’d have faced some brutal, HBO-style premium punishment.
But it’s still funny to imagine George RR Martin watching that interview and going beet red.
