Nikolaj Coster-Waldau: Criticism of Game of Thrones showrunners is “silly” – Winter is Coming

Game of Thrones
Con of Thrones 2019, Day 2: Jaime Lannister speaks! by Dan Selcke Today at Con of Thrones,  Game of Thrones stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Hannah Murray (Gilly) and Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel) sat down for a four-person panel. It was a delight to hear them banter back and forth, and there were some more substantial nuggets in there, too.

Assholes!’…they really, like everyone on Game of Thrones…and there are thousands, we worked our asses off to make the best show we could for the ending. I agree 100%, for the record. I completely understand not liking the way the show ended. I even understand hating it. There’s nothing wrong with voicing those opinions. Where it crosses the line for me is where people start ascribing sinister motives to the showrunners — they didn’t care about the show anymore, they wanted to move on to Star Wars, etc — when there’s no support for those readings. .
