What Lena Headey wanted for Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones
Headey is best known for her role as Cersei Lannister on HBO’s iconic hit series Game of Thrones, and the actress revealed in a recent interview that she would have liked her character’s story to end in the final season: “I think , all of us (cast members) had done that. “When we have the ideal endings in mind for our characters, to be honest, you start to write the story yourself,” Headey said. “And (Williams) and I would have dreamed of a showdown between Cersei and Arya, that she would come back as Jaime. That was our dream. But they made different decisions,” she added.
Headey understands that the show’s creative team was under immense pressure with the final season, adding: “I think in hindsight everyone understands that. You’re there and you’ve invested so much that there’s a moment where you ask, ‘Why?’ ‘ But I totally get it. Headey has left the franchise and most recently played the role of Dorothy Hunt alongside Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux in the HBO limited series Whitehouse Plumbers. She still misses her Game of Thrones comrades: “I miss the people – because you fall in love with people and create these family units. So it’s going to take a while for this to go through. There’s a strange sadness that comes with these relationships,” Headey said.
Long pork has yet to set a release date.
