In a recent appearance with Con Of Thrones, Game of Thrones Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Hannah Murray (Gilly) and Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel) speak about last season, next project and more.
The last season of ‘Game of Thrones’ is not liked by fans. The reason for this was the sloppy work of showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss. The duo was declared scapegoat.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) shared his thoughts about last season and criticism. He told that the criticism was groundless and defended David Benioff and Dan Weiss. He said:
“Every season has been intense in terms of the attention and discussion, but it was extraordinarily intense for a final season. And we have this WhatsApp group, the actors, and I saw some people getting a little upset because some of the stuff is vicious…It’s just fun for you, but of course, some got a little upset. There was that kind of weird feeling of, ‘What the hell? We worked so hard. I’m not asking anyone to feel sorry, by the way. That’s not what I’m saying. I’m just saying how it was to get through that whole thing.”
He also said, during an appearance at another panel:
“For anyone to imagine or to think that the two creators of the show are not the most passionate, the greatest, the most invested of all, and to for a second think that they didn’t spend the last 10 years thinking about how they were going to end it is kind of silly. And also know that they too read the comments. And it is, even though you sit on your own and go, ‘Fucking stupid writers. Assholes.’ They really ― like everyone on ‘Game of Thrones,’ every single person and there are thousands ― we worked our asses off to make the best show we could for the ending.”
