'GOT' actor Nikolaj Coster Waldau sues ex-manager for fraud

'GOT' actor Nikolaj Coster Waldau sues ex-manager for fraud”

The 47-year-old actor who plays Jaime Lannister on the hit HBO show has claimed he was "tricked" into signing a deal that paid his former manager Jill Littman 10% commission on his earnings after he was no longer signed to her agency, Impression Entertainment. "On the one hand, Defendants may always have harbored a secret intent to hold Coster-Waldau to the terms of the documents submitted with Impression's 0-1 Visa Applications, but misled him to believe that they shared his understanding (fostered by Defendants) that they were "sham' agreements of no legal significance", the jury trial seeking compensatory and punitive damages and declaratory relief seeking document adds of the oral deal between the parties".

Coster-Waldau is asking the court for a declaration that the 2011 and 2014 documents are not binding contracts, that the oral agreement is the only valid agreement, that he may not be compelled to arbitrate any dispute with Littman or Impression and that the now pending arbitration must be terminated.

Littman could not be immediately reached for comment. According to the documents, Coster-Waldau apparently owes Littman a commission on his work through 2018, i.e. pretty much the rest of his time on Game Of Thrones.

Littman responded in saying she was "disappointed" that Coster-Waldau reneged on "on his contractual obligation" with them, in addition to publicizing their disagreement, THR reported.

In 2011, according to the suit, Littman and Coster-Waldau decided he should obtain a three-year, O-1 visa, which the USA government issues to foreign nationals considered to have "extraordinary abilities" in various disciplines, including the arts. When he needed a visa to work in the US, though, Littman allegedly convinced him to sign a formal contract, on the grounds that it would make things look more official for the authorities, and supposedly assured him that they were only "sham" documents that she would never try to enforce.

In 2014, when the term of the first visa was about to expire, Littman convinced Coster-Waldau to sign a similar agreement to the 2011 contract, which he once again thought had exclusively to do with his new visa application, the suit states.

Shortly after Coster-Waldau fired Littman he stopped payment on a commission check, eventually leading Impression to initiate arbitration proceedings.

Coster-Waldau claims he would not have signed the 2014 "sham" document if he had known the defendants' true intention to bind him to an agreement to pay commissions after he left Impressions.
