Game of Thrones star addresses the final season controversies

Jaime Lannister himself has weighed in on the final season of Game of Thrones.

Ah, the final season of Game of Thrones.

Didn't really go according to plan, did it? Sure, it was still better than most things on TV, but it definitely was not without its critics.

Over a million of them apparently, according to the now infamous petition.

But Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the actor who played Jaime Lannister in the show, has given his two cents on the controversy surrounding the final season, specifically the abuse that was directed at the showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

Speaking at Con of Thrones, a Game of Thrones convention, he said: "The only thing I’ll say is that for anyone to imagine or to think that the two creators of this 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 gonna end it, is kinda silly."

So there you have it.

Coster-Waldau isn't the only one who has stuck up for the show's ending either.

George R R Martin, the man behind the book series recently said: "The Internet is toxic in a way that the old fanzine culture and fandoms, comics fans, science fiction fans in those days, was not.

"There were disagreements. There were feuds, but nothing like the madness that you see on the internet."

He's not wrong.
