Lena Headey can’t see Cersei’s reign on the Iron Throne lasting long
LONDON: With her son Tommen dead, along with pretty much everyone else in King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister found herself on the Iron Throne at the end of Game of Thrones season six.
It’s proved a precarious seat the past few seasons, however, so will she hold on to it in the seventh season?
“No. Not a chance in hell,” Lena Headey, who plays the scheming queen, told EW. “It’s a moment of punctuation in the madness.”
It remains to be seen who will dethrone her, though the finale hinted that it could well be Daenerys Targaryen, who is finally headed to Westeros.
As exciting as it would be to see Cersei and Dany in the same room, Headey is most excited about a Cersei/Tyrion reunion.
“I’m as excited as anyone to get Cersei and Tyrion back together. It just works,” she said.
“Those two characters are so interesting because there’s so much hate, yet slight respect too.
“They’d kill each other if given the chance.”
She said the right person to kill her off “has to be Arya or Tyrion” and that she isn’t concerned about her character’s potential death “as long as it’s kinda glorious and gory”. – Independent
