Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jamie Lannister

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is cast as Jaime Lannister in the HBO production Game of Thrones, a role I am sure he is suited to with his good looks, charm, smooth acting skills and the feeling of everything is just too good that he gives off.

Jamie as a character is not the typical ‘knight in shining armour’ very much being the ‘shite in knighting armour’ or as Frodo says someone that ‘seems fair but feels foul’, it may sound harsher than its meant, but im sure Nikolaj can play that role excellently. This is one of the pieces of casting on Game of Thrones which im most happy with.

Nikolaj as a Dane has a pedigree in both Danish and English film. I won’t speak to much about Dannish Language film as I know little about it, but I will say his film Nattevagten (1994) is what made him famous in Denmark. He has continued to make Danish language films even after breaking into Hollywood in 2001.

His breakthrough in mainstream English language film came with the Black Hawk Down in 2001, has been busy since that point and has and impressive list of films in which he has been involved with.

However none of his performances have been stand out in these English language films, but he does seem to be one of those actors who Ridley Scott is happy to work with on a number of projects so that speaks well for him.
