GAME of Thrones’ Jaime Lannister star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau looks unrecognisable in new Netflix survival thriller Against The Ice.
The 51-year-old Danish actor played the knight of the Kingsguard in the hit HBO series until it came to an end in May 2019.

As Jaime, Nikolaj sported short – medium length hair and a bit of stubble, and in real life the actor adopts a similar aesthetic, although a lot cleaner looking than his GoT alter ego.
Nikolaj plays Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen in the historical survival film opposite Gangs of London’s Joe Cole.
The film is based on the true story recounted in Two Against the Ice by Ejnar about his 1909 expedition to disprove the United States’ claim to North-Eastern Greenland.
At the time, it was claimed that Greenland was broken up into two different pieces of land.
But Ejnar decided to leave his crew behind and sled across the ice with his inexperienced crew member, Iver Iversen, played by Joe.
The trailer reveals the perils they face including running out of food, their husky dogs veering over an icy cliff and the growing tension between them.
At one point, Ejnar says: “You might freeze to death, or starve, lose your mind, but we must push on.”
The trailer climaxes with the men fighting each other while another shot sees one of them being held to the ground by a polar bear.

Against the Ice premieres on Netflix on March 2.
