HBO's Game of Thrones features a roster of down and dirty men – guys like mud-soaked Jaime Lannister – but they clean up rather nicely.
The latest issue of VMAN magazine features the actor who plays Lannister, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, looking more like Prince Charming.
Whether his King-slaying character is dirtied and beaten-down or scrubbed up for the palace, playing him is a joy, the actor says.
"Working on Game of Thrones isn't difficult – it's challenging, which is great," he tells VMAN. "When you do a show where the writing is weak, it's difficult. But on Game of Thrones we have such brilliant writing. The challenge here is to not f––– it up."

Game of Thrones star Sean Bean was arrested Wednesday and questioned on suspicion of sending abusive text messages and making harassing phone calls to his ex-wife Georgina Sutcliffe.
"A 53-year-old man attended a central London police station by appointment yesterday, where he was arrested on suspicion of harassment and bailed until a later date," a Scotland Yard spokesman tells PEOPLE. According to police, the man was questioned but not charged.
The Daily Mirror identified the man as Bean, 53, and posted a photo of him arriving at the police station.

Besides good looks and a Scottish accent, Richard Madden shares another trait with his Game of Thrones character, Robb Stark: a love of horses. But it didn't start out that way.
"I didn't know how to ride before I got the part," he tells PEOPLE. "I actually ended up really enjoying it, and continue to do it [on my own]."
After learning he had landed the plum role on HBO's epic series, Madden immediately began taking horseback riding lessons to successfully portray Stark, a highborn lord who grew up on horseback.

The long summer is ending, winter is coming, and don't even think about spring. The second season of HBO's thrilling fantasy drama Game of Thrones has arrived.
Episode one, "The North Remembers," was a typically seat-of-your-pants, edge-of-your-seat tour of the geography of Westeros, from deserts to ice-bound forests, as we witnessed rival camps preparing to go to war for the Iron Throne.
Here are the developments (spoiler alert) that most intrigued me and will have me hooked for the whole season:

Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage had a long-awaited reunion with his pal Michelle Williams on the red carpet Sunday – but he didn't let her off the hook so easily.
"I sort of gave her a little grief," the proud new papa, 42, told reporters on Sunday at the HBO afterparty in Beverly Hills.

Peter Dinklage was a winner at Sunday's Golden Globes, but he had other things on his mind while accepting.
After telling his fellow actors that he and wife Erica left their new daughter with a babysitter for the first time, the Game of Thrones star, 42, came backstage and told PEOPLE his nerves were calm about the situation – at least for the time being.
"Everything's fine – so far," Dinklage, 42, said, laughing. "She's a baby. Crying never killed anyone. Well, maybe that's not true."
