Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau appears to rule out return, saying ‘we’ve told the story’

Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau believes the show’s story ‘has been told’, quashing fans hopes of a return at some point in the future.

The fantasy drama series ended last year after eight hugely successful seasons which culminated in some of the biggest television audiences of all-time.

But while he admits there are things he misses about the show, Coster-Waldau - who played Jaime Lannister - does feel it was the right time to end it.

"I think we’ve told the story," he told The Kelly Clarkson Show

"I miss my friends, right? So you spend eight, nine years, almost 10 years together… you make friendships. So I miss them."

He also spoke about how co-stars Maisie Williams and Sophie Turner grew up on set and just how gripping and fun being a part of the show was for all the cast members.

"They were kids when they started out. You have this whole growth… they became young adults on that show.

"It’s an incredible, intense experience. Also, when the show becomes as successful as it did, that’s a whole different challenge, if you will. But inside the bubble, it was always a bit of fun."
