After several Game of Thrones stars gave their thoughts on the finale, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is sharing his opinion on whether GoT got it right.
“I didn’t follow it at all. [Pauses.] Obviously, I heard about it. I was aware of the petition for a new ending, which I thought was hilarious. I almost wanted to donate to that petition. HBO saying, ‘You’re right, so many people want it, we’re going to do it.’ I think everyone had their own opinion. I find the world of fandom really interesting. Everyone wanted something specific and different from what they got. It’s a combination of — you imagine an ending; but also, I think if you’re a hardcore fan, it was really upsetting that it ended. You lived with this for eight seasons. There is still a massive community dedicated to ‘Game of Thrones.’ I think there was a real fear that was going to go away. It had to end.:
When asked if he would do the ending differently, he said the finale was fine how it was…
“Oh, how did it end? He was — no, it was fine. It was great. It was fine. How do you end that story? Let’s talk about this in 10 years, then you can talk about it. But now, I think it’s a little too recent.”
In case you missed it, Carice van Houten previously opened up about “ungrateful” fans complaining about the ending. Read that HERE.
