It's no secret that the Game of Thrones series finale has been immensely disappointing for the majority of the fans. The controversial ending hasn't gone over well with fans, with others curious to know what the stars themselves feel about what took place in the finale. But as for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who played the role of Jaime Lannister, he revealed that he almost donated to a petition asking HBO to remake the finale.

"I didn't follow it at all," Coster-Waldau told Variety. "Obviously, I heard about it. I was aware of the petition for a new ending, which I thought was hilarious."

"I almost wanted to donate to that petition," he continued. "HBO saying, 'You're right, so many people want it, we're going to do it.' I think everyone had their own opinion."

Coster-Waldau adds that he finds the "world of fandom really interesting." Everyone wanted "something specific and different" from what was presented in the show. The actor thinks that while they imagine the perfect ending, if you're a "hardcore fan," it would have been "really upsetting" for the series to end, having followed the show for eight seasons.

"There is still a massive community dedicated to Game of Thrones," he added. "I think there was a real fear that was going to go away. It had to end."

Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that Coster-Waldau hated the finale, though he doesn't seem to have a specific answer for that as well ."Oh, how did it end? He was — no, it was fine. It was great. It was fine," he said, adding that it's a "little too recent" to talk about the finale so they ought to just discuss that in 10 years.
