The eighth and final season of Game of Thrones has begun and so have the theories about who will finally be perched atop the coveted Iron Throne.

During a promotional event, Waldau was asked to take his pick for the throne, where he said that while Tyrion Lannister ( played by Peter Dinklage) is smart, "he is no fighter." He continued, "She (Arya) is probably the most authoritative of them all. She will kill him and put on his face," according to Indo-Asian News Service.

When he was asked to choose between his character and Arya, Waldau said that Arya will put on Tyrion's face, greet Jaime as his brother and then kill him.

Waldau added that he feels Arya will defeat the mighty Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as well. Waldau joked that Dany, looking to scorch some more people with her dragons, would enquire about her nephew/lover Jon. In response, Arya, still wearing Tyrion's face, will tell her, 'Oh! Jon is dead and now you are dead too.'"

The final season began airing on 15 April in India.
