The clock is ticking down on "Game of Thrones," but there may be nothing to fear.
Series finales can be stressful, especially in a case like this, in which you don't know which characters will live or die. When all is said and done, though, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau seems to think "Game of Thrones" will go out on a high note. The actor, who plays Jaime Lannister, recently chatted about the hit HBO series during the Cannes Film Festival, and he indicated that the series wraps up in "the right way."
"We end the right way and the show ends on its own terms," Coster-Waldau said. "And when I read the scripts for the last season, I was like, 'Wow, they really pulled it off.'"
That seems to put Coster-Waldau in the camp that knows how "Game of Thrones" ends. His co-star Emilia Clarke claimed earlier in May that she still doesn't know the ending, which could be part of a ruse to get fans to think multiple endings are being filmed. While HBO's programming president, Casey Bloys, previously said they would do just that, some of the cast's comments since then have caused us to doubt the exec's claim. For now, we just hope we're right to believe Coster-Waldau when he says "Game of Thrones" ends the right way.

"Game of Thrones" Season 8 is expected to premiere in 2019.
