This article contains spoilers in abundance. If you haven’t watched the Game of Thrones finale yet, look away now.
It feels good to be right.
So it must feel pretty wonderful right now to be Gwendoline Christie, who successfully predicted the ending of Game of Thrones a whopping TWO WHOLE YEARS AGO.
But you know who should be feeling very silly right now? Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
In an interview with ExtraTV’s Mario Lopez in 2017, the pair were asked who they believed would end up on the Iron Throne.
“The odds now are in Daenerys Targaryen’s favour,” Coster-Waldau said confidently. WRONG!
“But don’t you think it’s going to be someone out of left-field, don’t you feel that those seem like the obvious choice?” asked Christie. “What we know about the show is that it constantly surprises you, so I’m wondering if it might be Bran.”

“Just because we keep seeing the world from his perspective, don’t we. We keep seeing the visions,” she explained.
“The Three-Eyed Raven as the king, huh. No, no it doesn’t make sense,” Coster-Waldau muttered in disbelief while shaking his head.
“Why?” asked Christie.
“Because he’s already planning the future, he’s seeing into the future and the past, so…”
“Yes,” replied Christie. “But how do you know we’re currently in the present in the story? The story might not necessarily be in chronological order.”
“But if this is real, right, the Three-Eyed Raven then he also made Jaime push him out the window?”
“Yes,” replies Christie.
Well, it took two years for the truth to come out, but now we know.
With foresight like that, I wonder if Christie might actually be Bran IRL.
