Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch. Fortunately, HBO just made sure that many of the fan favorites could stay around for a lot longer.

The principal stars of the hit HBO drama – who include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) – signed new contracts to keep them around for a potential seventh and final season (and give them massive raises), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau might be used to the Iron Throne, but his latest role involves a different kind of throne.

Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones, is pivoting to a more comic role in The Other Woman that involves its fair share of potty humor. But Coster-Waldau is more of a fan of The Other Woman's raunchy humor than you might expect the man behind Jaime Lannister to be.

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."

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:

Game of Thrones Season 2 Trailer Released

Who is the rightful ruler of Westeros?

HBO has just released the first teaser trailer for Game of Thrones season 2, offering a tense taste of things to come. We see Lady Stark pointing a dagger at Littlefinger, Joffrey threatening to kill Sansa, and Tyrion – played by Emmy and Golden Globe winner Peter Dinklage – acknowledging how "the game is played."

"One of the great challenges of the second season is that the world just expanded enormously," David Benioff, executive producer and writer, said recently. "Not only do we introduce a great number of new characters, but we're journeying to all new locations."

The Game returns April 1 on HBO.
