We worked so hard: Nikolaj on 'GoT' finale
New York: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has reflected on the outrage against the finale of 'Game of Thrones', calling the extreme reactions of the fans "silly".
The actor came forward in defence of showrunner duo David Benioff and Dan B Weiss who were heavily criticised for below par scriptwriting and poor portrayal of women in the last season of the hit HBO series.
Lakhs of fans from across the globe had signed an online petition urging the network to remake the eighth and final season of the epic fantasy series with "competent writers".
"For anyone to imagine or to think that the two creators of the show are not the most passionate, the greatest, the most invested of all, and to for a second think that they didn't spend the last 10 years thinking about how they were going to end it is kind of silly."
From 'GOT' stars like Sophie Turner and Jacob Anderson to creator RR Martin, the cast and crew of the series have previously condemned the outrage.
