Game of Thrones: Jaime Lannister star reveals behind-the-scenes secret about bronze hand
Game of Thrones saw the tragic end of Cersei Lannister (played by Lena Headey) and Jaime Lannister’s (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) story this year.
After years of battling to be together, Cersei and Jaime were finally brought together once again as Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) destroyed the city of King’s Landing.
However it wasn’t a happy reunion, as the twins were eventually killed by the Red Keep falling on top of them.
While a tragic ending awaited the lovers at the end of the series, during filming the actors made themselves comfortable throughout the journey – as revealed in a recent post by Jaime actor Nikolaj.
Nikolaj posted an image of Cersei star Lena in her character’s full regalia, holding Jaime’s bronze hand.
However the hand itself was opened up – obviously showing how Nikolaj fit his real hand into the prop.
And inside the bronze hand was an assortment of fruit, right next to Lena’s cheeky smile.
Nikolaj captioned the image: “@iamlenaheadey I finally got our ‘fruity hand of Queen’ into Production.
“Should be on Amazon anytime now. N.”
The behind-the-scenes snap revealed some of the antics that went on during filming between Lena and Nikolaj.
Recently the show’s director also gave some details about the final season.
The director, Miguel Sapochnik, spoke to IndieWire about the final moments of Daenerys’s time on the show.
Most notably, he discussed the change in Daenerys’s personality in the final season, and why viewers only saw certain parts of her story.
He explained: “She’s not questioning herself anymore, which is the difference between somebody who, I think, has kind of lost their mind.
“That’s part of what makes us human, is we question whether we’ve made the right decisions or not.”
Miguel also mentioned Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel), and how her death factored into Daenerys’s spiral into madness.
He added: “We said, ‘You’ve never been like this.’
“It was this idea of us trying to piece her back together, but something’s broken.”
However, Missandei’s death doesn’t explain why Daenerys decided to destroy the city of King’s Landing after she had already claimed it.
