Jaime Lannister Actor Reveals Major Characters Set To Join The Army Of The Dead
Warning: Potential Game Of Thrones spoilers ahead, beware.
Hold your dead horses, GOT fans, because Jaime Lannister actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has revealed his suspicions about the growing army of the undead in season eight.
There are already thousands upon thousands of creepy undead humans fighting battles for the White Walkers, not to mention the undead horses, undead polar bear and even the undead bloody dragon. We’re still bitter about that.
Coster-Waldau has been stirring the pot, however, by talking about the imminent additions to the wight army in season eight. Additions made up of main characters who we love dearly.
“The fear is that I would be turned into one of those undead. That would suck. You know some of the main characters are going to get turned,” he explained, hinting that it could be ice rather than fire that would be his downfall.
There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around.
And, god, I hope it’s not me. That’s three hours of make-up in the morning. I know that if [Game of Thrones’ showrunners] David Benioff and Dan Weiss read this, they’ll go, ‘Oh, yes we will’.”
In the season seven finale we saw -Jaime finally turn his back on his sister and lover, who also happens to be the mad queen Cersei. He decides to head north to join the efforts for the Great War, which puts him right in the way of the Night King and his masterful resurrection skills.
We also have to bear in mind that season seven was relatively sparse in terms of deaths, and as season eight will be the last ever season, they have no reason to keep everyone alive.
As per the theory that the majority of Game Of Thrones characters die in a way they reflects what they did in their lives, our money is totally on Jon Snow dying and becoming a wight. Unfortunately, as per what we’ve seen so far, White Walkers can only be created from children. Perhaps Jon and Dany will have a child and it will be stolen to become a White Walker. Or sacrificed as part of a peace pact between the humans and the White Walkers.
That would be one heck of a literal translation of ‘The Song Of Ice and Fire’, right?
Deep down, we hope Cersei becomes a tortured Wight, as penance for all her terrible crimes against humanity. We also hope a White Walker turns a whale and swims to Euron’s ship and turns him too. Die Euron, die.
