The actor, who played Jaime Lannister in all eight seasons, made an appearance at Comic-Con where he leapt to the show’s defence alongside Lord Varys star Conleth Hill.
While Hill accused the media of leading a hate campaign against the final season, Coster-Waldau specifically spoke about his underwhelming death scene alongside Cersei (Lena Headey).
“I thought it was perfect for him to end in the arms of Cersei,” he said, adding when – Variety reports – some fans in the audience disagreed: “It made sense to me - that’s just my opinion.”
Just days ago, Coster-Waldau defended showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss from the “silly” response to the series finale.
