Nikolaj Coster-Waldau didn’t watch The Dragon’s House: Too Soon
“It was kind of weird because it was the same music and the title line was similar,” the “Game of Thrones” alum said.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is still reeling from ‘Game of Thrones’.
The “GoT” alum admitted he found the “House of the Dragon” prequel “too early,” especially after hearing the “similar” opening.
“I haven’t (looked),” Coster-Waldau said Entertainment Weekly. “It came out one day and I saw the opening text. And it was a little weird because it was the same music and the title line was similar. I said, ‘Ah, it’s too early. Too early.'”
He added: “I’ll wait. I’ll give it a few seasons, then I can watch it, and then that’s it. But I know a lot of people love this show and I’m so happy for them.”
Former co-star Emilia Clarke similarly said she found the new show “so weird”.
“That’s too weird,” Clarke said Species. “I just can’t do it. This is very strange. So weird. It’s like someone saying, “You want to go to this school reunion that’s not your year? Do you want to go to that school reunion? It kind of feels like that. I avoid it.”
But Clarke added: “I’m so happy it’s happening. I’m so over (about) all the fees. Everyone who made it.”
The “Game of Thrones” universe is expanding, with a Jon Snow spinoff confirmed to star Kit Harington and several George RR Martin novel adaptations. Harington teased the upcoming “Snow” series, saying the character will find “trauma” again after the events of “Game of Thrones” and “it’s not okay.”
“I think if you asked him, he would have felt like he was getting off easy,” Harington said. “At the end of the show, when we find him in that cell, he’s about to be beheaded, and he wants to be. He completed it. Going to the wall is the greatest gift and also the greatest curse.”
Harington added: “He has to go back to that place with all that history and live his life thinking about how he killed Dany and live his life with Ygritte dying in his arms; I’m thinking about how he hanged Olly and lived his life while he’s thinking about that trauma, and that’s interesting. So I think when we leave him at the end of the show, I always feel like I think we wanted a little bit of a smile that everything was okay. Is not well.”
In his blog post “SNOW… and Other Stuff”. Author Martin explained that there are “four live-action spinoffs in development at HBO,” one of which is the Harington-led spinoff.
“Yes, Kit Harington brought us the idea. I can’t tell you the names of the writers/showrunners because it hasn’t been released yet,” Martin said. “But Kit brought them in, his own team, and they’re fantastic.”
