‘Game of Thrones’ star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau says a prank almost got him sued by HBO

Game of Thrones” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is probably best known for playing Jaime Lannister, but he’s also apparently a bit of a prankster.

Coster-Waldau decided to play a joke on his “Game of Thrones” bosses about his hair several seasons ago, but he said it almost got him in legal trouble with HBO.

“There’d been a lot of talk about Jaime’s hair in the early seasons — his long golden locks,” he told Digital Spy. “Once he lost his hand, I thought he should maybe have a haircut. And then I thought, ‘Why don’t I just pretend?’”

“I sent them an old picture where I had a buzz cut,” the 48-year-old actor continued. “I sent a long letter where I explained I’d taken control of my character and I want to be respected. I said that my integrity as an artist was at stake.”

At first, he said, nobody responded to his letter. However, when he arrived in Belfast to start back up with filming, he got a frightened call from the first assistant director of the show who said the head of the hair department was frantically working on making a wig.

“I said, ‘It’s just a joke! Did you really believe?’ They all believed it,” Coster-Waldau said. “They’d also called my manager. HBO had started to talk about suing me and it had gotten out of control.”

On Tuesday night, Coster-Waldau played a prank with fewer consequences on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

The star was discussing fan theories with the late-night host when he suggested one prediction he thought might come true — though it ended up being a joke about a soccer team in the U.K.

“There’s also this thing about a guy called Bielsa, which is a guy who comes and magically transforms this world for the good,” Coster-Waldau said, explaining the fake fan theory.

Though Kimmel fell for the joke, the actor eventually admitted it was a reference to Marcelo Bielsa, the manager of Leeds United.

CNN’s April Ryan calls for Sarah Sanders to be fired

Fox News Flash top headlines for April 18

CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report.

In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything.

Ryan, who is also a White House reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, blasted the press secretary on Thursday night for “lying” to the American people.

“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett. “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ she needs to go.”

The CNN pundit suggested that since President Trump “won’t take the fall” that Sanders might instead.

“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room… The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan continued. “Then, on top of all that, she says the press is fake when she’s faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake? We’ve had colleagues who’ve had to move from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called ‘fake’ and a ‘loser’ and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
