Nikolaj Coster-Waldau premiered Season 4 of Game of Thrones in Sydney at its iconic Stage Theatre on Monday.

Scoopla spoke with Nikolaj about filming with one hand, and Nikolaj plays a game of bed, behead or betroth.

Spotlight Report asks Nikolaj if he had to audition for another Game of Thrones character which one would he pick, and who does he hang out with off set while filming?

Sum Yung Gai put together a full video report from the premiere, including a look at Nikolaj coming out on stage to greet the fans, and getting the crowd to participate in a bet with David and Dan.

That’s The Tea asks Nikolaj what we can expect from Season 4, and about his experience filming his latest film in Australia.

Happy Royal Wedding day!

    The Viper would make minced meat out of Brienne and it wouldn’t even take him much effort. Not to dish Brienne, she’s good but she just isn’t good enough to stand tow to tow to the Viper.

    The Bride: It was not my intention to do this in front of you. For that I’m sorry. But you can take my word for it, your mother had it comin’. When you grow up, if you still feel raw about it, just cast Mads Mikkelsen as Euron.

    Veltigar,

    And if by some small chance she did win, she would still lose. They call him The Red Viper for a reason. Speaking of which, when will the show first mention his nickname?

    Gwen and Pedro are really cool. I hope they’ll go to Comic Con this year.

    Veltigar,

    I have to second this. Book Brienne wouldn’t stand a chance (not because she isn’t good, but because Oberyn is so much better). Show Brienne is a little more experienced than book Brienne, which means she’d be able to put up a fight before he gets her. But still… Sorry Gwen!

    Sigur Ros have just released their cover of the Rains of Castamere. It’s probably going to play in the credits of tonights episode.

    http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/04/listen-sigur-ros-cover-of-the-rains-of-castamere-for-game-of-thrones/

    I think it’s pretty haunting and beautiful.

    cosca,

    That was cool, very different to The National’s rendition from season 2. Hopefully Ramin can write music for The Dornishman’s Wife or Last of the Giants at some point, or maybe add lyrics to that song which played at Tyrion and Sansa’s wedding before TB&TMF and the RW too. Speaking of which, I wonder if Olenna’s going to comment on how many times the Lannister song is played?

    Valyrian Plastic,

    Yeah, I’m still hoping for those other two songs too.

    Love Sigur! I share the sentiment about the song.

    Valyrian Plastic,

    Yeah, I’d like to see those done. It’s always possible that we’ll get one of those sung during the season, even if we don’t have it recorded by a professional band. I could see the Wildlings singing tLotG as they march, or the Dornishman’s Wife being played at the Wedding in tonight’s episode.

    I hope so, because that newest cover is cool but at this point I am right there with her. >_<

    Gwendoline Christie may have the single greatest laugh in recorded history. Even better, her wicked sense of humor causes her to deploy said laughter during the most appropriately twisted situations – you know, discussions about potential nudity or biting off a man’s ear and spitting it in his face. She’s the best.

    And Pedro Pascal just seems like an all-around awesome dude. Both of these parts were so perfectly cast.
