Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime) on That Last Scene with Olenna Tyrell

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones, talked to EW about that last scene in the episode 3 (The Queen’s Justice) of season 7, in which we see his character giving Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg) a painless poison which she drinks without hesitation. Olenna then reveals to him that she was the one who planned Joffrey’s murder and also asks Jaime to tell Cersei about it. Coster-Waldau praised Rigg’s performance during the scene and loved that she went ‘out with bite’:

“Olenna is like Cersei in so many ways, but just from our point of view she’s been on the ‘good’ side. And I just love how she goes out. She goes out with bite. She’s never going to beg. She did an amazing job. It was fun to be there and when we wrapped the showrunners came around and said a few words. She’s had a huge impact on the series.”
