Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stopped by the morning show Good Day New York today to promote his new film, Mama. In addition to discussing the supernatural thriller, Nikolaj also confirmed he had kept his beard because Game of Thrones is doing more filming next week.
“The thing is we have to shoot two more days next week in Los Angeles. For the first time we shoot there because there’s the one character that can’t leave this country. So we have to come and shoot there because usually we shoot Game of Thrones in Europe. Yeah that’s why I still have this.”
Ours is the Fury: I think it’s likely Nikolaj meant someone was occupied with filming in Los Angeles already and couldn’t take the time off to film additional scenes overseas.
