Man of the Hour–Enlisted for the latest cover story of C for Men, Game of Thrones actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is photographed by Hugh Stewart with styling by Victoria Collison. Talking to the magazine about what makes his character Jaime Lannister so complex, in the fact that fans both love and despise him, Coster-Waldau explains, “That’s what I loved about this character when I signed on. You start out with a guy who seemingly is a very cynical, dark, evil man, if you will, and then they told me what his journey would be, and I found it fascinating. Even with the first scene, he does something so horrible and then says, ‘The things I do for love.’ That is his motivation.” However, Jaime’s sister Cersei seems unlovable and Coster-Waldau agrees, “I think so too. Jaime does ask, ‘Why did the gods make me love such a hateful woman?’ It’s interesting because so far she hasn’t shown many redeeming qualities. Mind you, clearly she hasn’t had an easy life.” Read more at MagazineC.com.
