Nikolaj Coster-Waldau unveils extended version of Jaime & High Sparrow scene

ncw

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was a guest last night on CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He teased season 6 and talked up the women of the show but best of all, a new extended version of the scene with Jaime and the High Sparrow debuted.

Here’s Nikolaj discussing the women of the show, and how it’s no surprise women viewers would like Game of Thrones.

The complete episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is available on CBS.com.

Nikolaj was a very busy man over the last couple days. Yesterday, the Game of Thrones official Twitter hosted a live chat with Coster-Waldau present to field questions from fans. He handles questions on his most challenging scenes, who is going to die this season, the funniest castmates, and so much more. SerDuncanTheTall has helpfully gathered up the clips up into one YouTube video for our enjoyment.

    1. And before people even start: do not post any first episode leaks/discussion of that material in this post. Anything like that will be deleted.

    3. Why people believe that women wouldn’t like GoT? It has Nikolaj and Kit :-p
      Now this is stupid, women, men and everyone likes a good series when it’s good.. only marketing separates women from men so they can sell products in reality we don’t need special things. I don’t believe i am more sensitive to violence than any man out there, this has to do with the person not with the gender. But Nikolaj was on the point to name Olenna as the most powerfull character rather than any other. The woman married the one she wanted, live as she wanted and is still there till the old age to rule as she wants and kills as she wants..she is the most successful of them all.

      Nice scene for Jaime, he is one of my most fav characters and i want him to have a good season.

    4. Okay it is my understanding that stuff has leaked from the premiere…

      So here we are now… 30 hours from the airing and the temptation is here… will I find the strenght not to seek for the leaks ?

    5. Dragonmcmx,

      Yeah, that’s very likely…

      Okay, unlike previous years, I guess I really should try to resist the temptation now… especially so close to the premiere… it’s not like the leaks poped up two weeks in advance…

    6. Arkash,

      I wouldn’t. If you think a spoiler is coming avert your eyes. And this is coming from someone who actively loves/seeks out spoilers… I wish I hadn’t clicked on that link last night…. -_-

    7. West of Moon,

      Same here. Wish I could go back in time and scream at myself ‘DON’T FOOKIN CLICK!’

      This scene seems amazing, one of Jaime’s strongest ones. I can’t wait to see it.

    8. West of Moon,

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. I feel kinda empty now that I’ve seen all the pictures and read all the spoilers. And spoilers are usually my main source of hype.

    9. Sue the Fury,

      As someone who actively seeks to avoid spoilers, I applaud your comment. I love the show, I love the books. I don’t post spoilers and I try not to see them.

      It’s exciting to learn about the developments from each week as they happen. I’m so hyped that it’s finally coming tomorrow night.

      GoT Forever!!!!!

    10. I didn’t watch the episodes before they aired last year and I’m avoiding the leaks this year thanks to Sue’s viligance. I did see some doctored photos at the end of last year and really regretted it. I was so pissed when I found out they were not real. Or rather that they were doctored.

      One more day! One day more! I feel like breaking into song!

    11. Sue, I’ve got to thank you for all the work that you’re doing to keep the leaks away from here. I’ve looked at them (no worries, though! My lips are sealed), but I know a lot of people don’t want to know and I think you’re doing a great job of keeping it so. After going to some… unsavory, shall I say, places, I appreciate all the work that the mods put into this place and all the insightful and pleasant people who comment on here. Thanks to everyone for making this a site that I enjoy coming to with my GoT hype. And talking of hype, I am so very, very hyped for the first episode! *raises glass*

    12. Dragonmcmx,

      That’s how I am. Spoilers and stills usually just make me want to see the full scene in all its glory and know what’s going on even more. But last night it just left me feeling a wierd mix of sadness and what the fook. Still hyped though.

    13. This scene, especially when extended with the trailer #2 snippet, should be quite riveting. I think “…the gods won’t mind, they spill more blood than the rest of us combined.” will become one of my favorite phrases of the show. Quite telling, in Planetos and our world, and it also establishes Jaime as a budding poet. 🙂

    14. I like spoilers as much as the next person, but I won’t seek them out and I won’t look if I see one coming. I feel it would not only be disrespectful of the great effort the production went thru to keep it secret, but I don’t want to sully the purity of actually seeing what comes next. Although I often feel I can’t wait any longer, I WILL wait!

    15. I hope Jaime goes back to his redemption arc. I think he might be able to once Cersei goes all b**sh** crazy and has the Mountain/Strong killing everyone. She’ll go too far, because that’s what she does, and he’ll remember who he was becoming when he saved Brienne from the bear.

    17. Nice to get the meaning of those stones.

      I think the HS will tell Jaime of Cersei and Lancel here. That will be the first rift in their relation.
      Tommen, Myrcella and even Marg will be the next I think.

    18. HBO needs to get their shit together. Sorry, but if it takes non-English speaking countries waiting an extra couple of days to see the episodes in order to prevent the leaks, so be it.

      Sorry for bringing this up, but I am really bummed about this stuff still happening.

    19. Mihnea,

      It seems to me that in this scene, Jaime already knows about Cersei’s walk of atonement and the reason for it.

      Also, I don’t think it was a wise move from Jaime to list High Sparrow all his sins (especially inside the Sept). Maybe this will lead to the “I choose violence” scene from the trailer.

        Quote  Reply

    20. MG,

      Perhaps he doesn’t now the reason.

      I expect the first person to tell him of that to be Cersei herself. I doubt she will also tell him the Lancel part.

    21. Love that clip, and the interview. But if you want a laugh, click on the CBS link to watch the intro to that show. Colbert and NCW do a nice little take on GOT!

      Yeah Sue, appreciate your hard work.

      Nah, Cersei wouldn’t do anything for Jaime and she is still on trial. She can’t go to the sept without having to face HS and charges.
      Jaime has to have a reason to

      go to Riverlands

      and if Lancel isn’t the one, they will find something else to make him leave her and follow the story there are spoilers he will.
      Jaime seems to be like “i am sinful will you punish me like Cersei ?” badass, and i think it’s great difference with Cersei is that he acknowledges his “sins” one by one, while Cersei tries to convince herself she didn’t do anything and it’s the world who is against her.
      If you have in mind that it’s Cersei who gave Faith Militants the weapons to humiliate and imprisoned her, in her attemp to have another woman humiliated and imprisoned while Jaime will go one and defend both of them, i think the show is giving Jaime a little character growth this year.

      It seems to me that the “I choose violence” scene was in the Red Keep not in the Sept.
      Also, Jaime didn’t acknowledge all his sins… I didn’t here him talk about the incest (he was part of it too) or pushing Bran out of the window. And of course he would not admit it when his sister is on trial charge with incest. And that’s the same thing Cersei did. She denied the incest when the HS brought up what Stannis was saying, because she was protecting her children and her brother. It’s clear that in the confession scene she is lying to protect not only herself but her children and her brother.
      Also I’m glad that show Jaime cares for his children.

      I don’t understand this at all. The series is handled by all sorts of people in every country where HBO has a TV channel, it has nothing to do if people in some country speak English or not. Last year the leaks were from the US, does that mean the series should be delayed in the US as well?

      Well we will see, my money is one what Headey said.
      “Cersei kind of hates Jaime this season but she needs him”. Also book Cersei asks Jaime to be her champion and die with her, but she doesn’t admit the incest because if she does Tommen will loose his throne…and she wants this throne, she waited and deserves it in her mind.
      Book Jaime cares for Tommen a little also, he runs outside to help him when Cersei makes him attend Tywin’s funeral and yells to him. Show Cersei also loves her children more than book Cersei, but again this doesn’t change the fact that what happened to het last season, was what she wanted to happen to his son’s wife.
      Cersei and Jaime are very different characters, Jaime acknowledges that all his crimes are a result of his decisions (including pushing Bran and incest , he makes clear to Catelyn that he was the one who did it and why ) while Cersei blames Tyrion, society and profesies for her own actions . I believe show will show this also, that’s why they included Maggie the Frog last year..so tv viewers to know why she does everything she does.

    28. Hoyti Von Totiy: im dying to see how will the High Sparrow and his Poor fellows will end up …

      My bet is that they learn that the Church is not above the rules of the Game of Thrones. And, of course, Cersei will probably wind up hurting herself even more in the long run in teaching them this lesson! She might never be the true Queen of Westeros: but she certainly is the Grand Empress of One Step Forward, Fifteen Unrealized Steps Backwards.

      Tyrion Pimpslap: Sorry for bringing this up, but I am really bummed about this stuff still happening.

      This happens for every show with a fanbase: it is just more obvious when you pay attention! There is little that HBO or any other studio can do to prevent it. Moreover, it’s only the hardcore fans who get spoiled: Joe and Jane HBO Subscriber will know nothing about any of this. (Heck, I read these sites, and I’ve managed to avoid any “spoilers.”)

    30. Wimsey,

      No i have a feeling that dealing with him and keep in mind his religious movement strongly supported by the smallfolk will take something more than just violence.

      The key to his downfall is to make the commonfolk turn on him and faith militant.

      Jamie as we see is playing it wrong.

      On the other hand if someone wishes to create chaos for the Lannisters all he has to do is assasinate HS. 😉

      p.s.
      A big plothole is why is Jamie even “defending” Cersei before HS when he should of known what she did (Lancel …) the moment he set foot in KL.

      Maybe he sees the walk of shame as an passive attack on Tommen and supremacy in Kl, that would make sense and after that he leaves for Riverrun.

      But in the trailer it seems its like Cersei “orders” him to Riverrun, and that dont add up … ahh im gonna go insane.

    31. Maybe the High Septon is starting to realize he went too far with Cersi. He wasn’t seriously challenged by Kevin Lannister or Tommen. Now that he is faced with an angry Jamie, he may be feeling some fear .

    32. Re: the leaks – I’ll have to keep my hungry little fingers under control till Monday morning (in the UK the simultaneous broadcast GoT is 5 hours ahead of USA Eastern time and hopefully, I’ll be in the land of nod by then).

      Cersei’s Brain:
      Why is this man not the lead for many rom coms?He is hilarious

      Unfortunately, he was in one a couple or three years ago (I forget the name) and it was not well received by the critics. Still maybe he will get a reasonable role in one in the future. Is he spending a lot of time in the USA these days because I thought there was something of an American twang in his voice that I didn’t catch in previous seasons.

      Incidentally, thanks to Ser Dunc for collating the clips.

      Based on his comments about how he’d love to do another scene with Gwen someday it doesn’t sound like we will get a Brienne – Jaime reunion this season… Sad to have to wait… Of corse nik is also a huge troll so he may be teasing us! Holding out hope. 🙂

    34. NCW is a class act! So very charming. & Its a testament to his acting range that Jaime is one the most complex & fascinating characters on the show. Cant wait to see his arc this season.

    35. Wimsey,

      Yes, “I choose violence” doesn’t seem to work so well in GRRM’s universe … let’s see 3 dead Starks, 3 dead Lannisters (the major ones), 5 dead Baratheons, Targaryens (1 since the period covered by the show, and 6 (or 5 maybe) two decades before that), 2 dead Night’s Watch commanders (well one dead for sure and the other dead for now). I’m sure the Boltons, Freys, Tyrells and Martells and other houses will see their share of deaths this season as well. Oh, and the 2 Cleganes (1 dead, but …, and 1 presumed dead but no body has been seen so …. unconfirmed)

    36. Loved the twitter Q&A, NCW is so genuine and charming.

      Advice to Jaime? – Maybe rethink his relationship with his sister…

      How would you like your character to die? – Of old age… (Other cast members have gone for epic or gruesome, dragonfire etc.)

      As to the clip. Clink, clink, clink… How can that armour clinking sound so menancing? *goosebumps* A slight nit-pick. People commenting say he’s grabbing his sword. No, it’s his dagger. Left hand, left hip. As a “left-handed” swordsman, he’d wear his sword on the right hip to be able to draw it properly.

      Jaime admits (some of) his sins and admits personal responsibility. Cersei’s way is to deny and then blame others or the world. Jaime sees the wrong in himself, Cersei doesn’t. It’s going to be interesting to see how it all pans out. So hyped!
