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
