San Diego Comic-Con has always been a place where filmmakers and fans can open up the conversation and discuss TV shows and movies. And the Game of Thrones panel this past Friday was no exception.

Us Weekly reports that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) and other members of show, such as Maisie Williams (Arya Stark) and Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) were booed as they stood up for the divisive final season.

The Danish actor took the very vocal protests with stride after he shared that he thought the conclusion of Jaime and his lover/sister Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)'s story was “perfect for that character’s ending.”

The fans clearly disagreed.

Coster-Waldau laughed, saying, “It comes to an end, it’s gonna piss you off no matter what because it’s the end. If you hated the ending, if you loved the ending, that’s great. Just don’t call people names.”

Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, as well as Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) and Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont), were scheduled to appear, but all dropped out before the event, blaming scheduling conflicts.

Coster-Waldau is not the only cast member to defend the show. Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) called fans out for being “disrespectful” back in May following the creation of a petition asking for Season 8 to be “rewritten with competent writers.”
