Season 7 of Game of Thrones is slowly but surely making its way to our screens, but while we wait, we feel it's only right to analyse everything and anything Thrones alumni have to say about it.

This time it's Jaime Lannister himself, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who's been opening up about the upcoming season, teasing its sheer complexity and depth.

Chatting to The Daily Beast, Nikolaj admitted that he'd been asking the writers a lot of questions about where Jaime's relationship with Cersei is heading – but hasn't been getting many answers.

"It is very complex, and the more you dig into it, the more complex it gets," he revealed. "We're so deep into this story and getting into the endgame now.

"[S]o for all of us who have been on the whole journey, you really want to get it right. Every scene and every moment feels ridiculously important."

Adding that he'd fallen in too deep with trying to understand what the writers had in store, Nikolaj said: "I just had to let it go because I was trying to understand way too much."

(We feel the same, Nikolaj.)

Someone else who's totally unsure of what to expect from the climax of Thrones is Kit Harington, proving that Jon Snow really doesn't know much at all.

"Everyone's been wondering how it's going to end, and what's going to happen right from the get-go, and theorising about it," Kit recently admitted.

"It's really exciting to me not knowing, genuinely having no idea where it's going to end, what they've got in their heads, and being the first to find out."

Season 7 of Game of Thrones will premiere simultaneously on Sunday, July 16 at 9pm ET on HBO in the US and at 2am on Monday, July 17 on Sky Atlantic in the UK.

And for those of us in the UK who don't fancy staying up that late, the series will also be repeated at 9pm on the Monday too.
