His character got toasted by Daenerys’ dragon alongside his father in season seven of Game of Thrones and now actor Tom Hooper has weighed in on how the hit HBO show will end in season eight. He won’t be privy to the coveted and no-doubt super protected script for the upcoming season, but the 32-year-old has given his thoughts on how the show can wrap and he suggests that it will be with a horrific murder. ‘I think Jamie [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau] is probably going to end up killing Cersei [Lena Headey],’ he told Yahoo7.
Speaking to Yahoo7 Be on Friday, the 32-year-old said he thinks the notoriously violent show will end with a vital character being murdered. I think Jamie [Nikolaj Coster-Waldau] is probably going to end up killing Cersei [Lena Headey].’ he told the online publication.
The actor added that he had also taken a strong fancy to a particularly convincing fan theory doing the rounds. ‘I like the Sam fan theory. It’s that Samwell Tarly [John Bradley West] is narrating the whole thing, like it’s his story,’ he said.

The 32-year-old hinted that Game of Thrones would close with a major death and betrayal that would leave fans reeling. Tom’s words come after Danish actor Nikolaj, 47, also suggested that his anti-hero character would be getting the chop in the final season of the show. The Danish star went on to joke to Esquire: “There are going to be some blue-eyed main characters running around. “And, god, I hope it’s not me. That’s three hours of make-up in the morning. I know that if [Game of Thrones’ showrunners] David Benioff and Dan Weiss read this, they’ll go, ‘Oh, yes we will’.”

Game of Thrones Season 8 spoilers are reportedly hinting that some of the show’s main characters will die in the final season. However, Coster-Waldau claims he’s worried about the fate of Jamie as he believes some of the show’s main characters will die and be turned into the undead frozen zombies during the final season of the series. Tormund Giantsbane and Beric Dondarrion are at the top of the list since viewers watch the two seemingly get killed when the Night King’s newly turned dragon destroyed the wall in the Season 7 finale.
