When it comes to getting married, few people take their time, while others are set to seal their relationship with the people they can't afford to lose. 

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who is raging through his fame from his character Jamie Lannister in the HBO's series "Game of Thrones," falls under the latter category. He is married to his beautiful wife Nukaaka Coaster-Waldau for nearly 21 years now.

The couple shares a strong, loving bond, but his wife is found, not following her husband's popular show. What might be the reason? Let's find that out!

Married At a Young Age!

Despite having worked earlier in movies like Nightwatch, Misery Harbor, and few others, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau managed to grasp significant recognition through his character Jamie Lannister alongside Cerci Lannister, Sansa Stark, Lord Varys and others.

Accompanying his successful career is Nikolaj's successful love life. He is married to Nukaaka Coster-Waldau, who was crowned Miss Greenland and was placed 19th during the 1990's Miss Universe pageant.

The couple first met on 17 March 1997 while working together on a radio play. Nikolaj got instantly attracted to Nukaaka and even described it as "love at first sight."

Although Nukaaka insisted on a professional relationship as she wasn't initially interested, she affirmed once she realized Nikolaj's love for her.

 "I think it took longer for her, I wore her down. I was just crazy in love." 

They exchanged vows in the year 1998 when Nikolaj was just 28 years of age. The couple down the line started a family in the year 2000 when Nukaaka gave birth to their first daughter- Filipa in October. Later in November 2003, they were gifted with another daughter named Safina.

However, Nikolaj got caught up in the rumor for kissing Cameron Diaz, when a fan mistook pictures from a kissing scene Nikolaj shared with the actress while filming 'The Other Woman in New York.' Nukaaka was full of mirth when she received a letter that informed her about the rumor, which read,

"You should know that your husband is cheating on you with Cameron Diaz. Cameron Diaz is not to be trusted."

Thankfully it was just a rumor without any strings attached, and Nukaaka took the incident very casually. It shows the duo trust each other perfectly.

Nikolaj's Wife; Not A Game Of Thrones' Fan!

Nikolaj, who is a famous villain in the 'GOT' series, was soared to worldwide fame for of his character Jamie Lannister. He's a heartthrob for many ladies, and it won't be any surprise if you find guys having a man-crush on him, as he flaunts a sexy dapper look.

Despite the fame, Game of Thrones rewarded Nikolaj; it was reported that his wife doesn't follow the series.

In an interview with Esquire, Nikolaj talked about it in details revealing the fact that Nukaaka hasn't watched a single episode yet, and had he not been in the series himself it would have been the same case for him.

Nikolaj told the magazine,

"She’s like, ‘Oh I don’t know if it’s for me! I’m not going to force her to watch it. I don’t really care, it’s just my job. And to be honest, if I hadn’t been in it, maybe I wouldn’t have watched it. I mean, I probably would have done, but I would have had that same ‘Erm, I’m not sure if this is for me"

Although Nikolaj's wife attended the premiere of the first episode of the series alongside her husband, she is yet to watch any more episodes of the show. 

The same goes for his children as Nikolaj doesn't want his kids to be embarrassed by their father's work. As he doesn't want his offsprings to see their father kissing another woman other than their mother, the actor hasn't allowed his children to watch the show as well.

While Nikolaj's wife isn't a fan of her husband's show, she is no stranger to acting. In fact, she and Nikolaj were seen together in a 2008 film named Himmerland. But, with the eighth season of GOT currently on air, Nukaaka could join her husband and support Nikolaj during the run of the series end.
