The actor who played Jaime Lannister has a doll of his colleague's character, Brienne of Tarth at his house.
Whether you loved or despised the final season of Game of Thrones, the show is now over whether you like it or not. Yes, some of the show's storylines did feel a little rushed toward the end, and some elements didn't go the way that the wider GoT fanbase wanted them to. Hasn't that always been the Thrones way, though?
One element that definitely didn't end the way most fans wanted it to was the will they/won't they angle between Jaime Lannister and Brienne of Tarth. After spending some quality time together, Lannister wound up riding back to King's Landing so he could be with Cersei. Brienne made a late-night plea in an attempt to get him to stay, but the Kingslayer's mind was made up.
Away from Westeros, it has been revealed that the pair's relationship had a happier ending, sort of. Architectural Digest recently paid Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's (the actor who plays Lannister) home a visit. As nice a pad as it obviously is, one element of it, in particular, caught our eye. A doll of Brienne sitting comfortably in one of Coster-Waldau's chairs.
That's right, he may have abandoned her in GoT, but in the real world, it's clear who Lannister would have picked. The Danish actor revealed that the doll was actually made by a fan who asked Coster-Waldau to pass it on to the actress who plays Brienne, Gwendoline Christie. After revealing that tidbit, the Dane quickly skated over the fact he hadn't passed on the toy to its intended recipient by awkwardly discussing how comfortable the doll's chair is.
There are a few ways in which fans might interpret the lack of passing on the doll by Coster-Waldau. We'd like to think he really does love Brienne and hence wanted to keep the memento himself. Others might assume there's a little friction between the two of them and he is holding the doll ransom. In reality, he probably just hasn't gotten around to giving it to Christie yet.
