Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Continues ‘Game of Thrones’ Musical With Cersei Love Song
Yesterday Game of Thrones favorite Peter Dinklage gave a musical tribute to the many casualties of Westeros in honor of Red Nose Day, but Jaime Lannister wasn’t about to let his brother fly solo. Now, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has gotten in on the gag, leaving us well on the way to a full-fledged Game of Thrones musical with a love song for Cersei.
Coster-Waldau opted for a more melancholy ballad approach than his soulful on-screen brother, crooning piano-side about sister-lover Cersei, nephew-son Joffrey and his missing hand. Like Dinklage, the song arrives in promotion of NBC’s Red Nose Day on May 21, which itself will feature a Game of Thrones collaboration with Coldplay.
For those outside the know, the UK-imported Red Nose Day began as a 1988 charity campaign dedicated to raising money for children living in poverty, and will be held for the first time stateside tomorrow. Among the 100+ guests taking part, we’ve got Ed Sheeran, Josh Groban, Christian Slater, Kermit the Frog, Julia Roberts, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon, Reese Witherspoon, Jack Black, Pharrell, One Direction, John Mellencamp and dozens more, with Seth Meyers, David Duchovny and Jane Krakowski hosting.
