There have been a couple of notable reunions on HBO’s big-budget fantasy series “Game of Thrones” this year, but one that was conspicuously absent is that of Jerome Flynn’s Bronn and Peter Dinklage’s Tyrion.
The pair did share a scene together in the most recent episode but it was one which they barely acknowledged that any time had passed. This week Flynn tells THR that there was originally going to be a scene between his character and Tyrion right before the scene we did see, but they decided against filming it:
“Originally, I heard there was going to be one. They decided not to go for it. There’s something, I hope, that’s still to come, where Bronn and Tyrion might have a little bit of time for an exchange together, and shoot the breeze, as it were. Hopefully, there will be some old Bronn and Tyrion dynamics coming up again.”
The pair shared one of the best on screen chemistry’s of the whole series and, though driven apart to forge their own paths with Bronn ultimately working for the very people who want Tyrion killed, there’s still plenty of loyalty there:
“Sure, there’s a fondness [for Jaime], but it doesn’t come close to what he feels toward Tyrion. I really do think there’s a bond between himself and Tyrion. He sees an underdog and an outcast in Tyrion, and he sees some of himself in that.”
Also today, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has revealed to Collider that filming on the eighth and final season of the series kicks off in October. For comparison sake, the currently screening seventh season of the series began filming August 31st last year.
