Lena Headey adores how Cersei overcomes weaker mean in the show

Lena Headey adores how Cersei overcomes weaker mean in the show

It’s no surprise that Lena Headey is a strong proponent of gender quality and women empowerment. And it was in the same note that she revealed in an interview how much love and admiration she has for the character of Cersei Lannister because she can easily overcome the weaker men in the TV series ‘Game of Thrones.’

Lena says that playing the character of Cersei has shown her how the other characters work better, and how she exploits the weaknesses in them. She also has greater admiration for how the character is a survivor and keeps holding on no matter what happens to her.

“We’ve seen [these characters] over such a long period of time, and with the subtleties of men’s weaknesses being exposed throughout, these women have risen over the course of this series,” she said. “But you just have to admire a survivor like that. She absolutely refuses to let go.”

The actress also reveals how she likes to keep including comedy in her scenes despite the role of her character, and also how the other actors around her keep making goofy comedy out of the reels of HBO’s production team. She claims that they would have enough for around two seasons worth of a comedy parody of the Game of Thrones. The only thing left is to see whether they ever decide to release it.

“I’m also a total t*** as well,” she said, adding: “We f*** around more than anyone will ever know. I’m always saying, ‘Can we not do one comedy take?’ And David and Dan are just like, ‘No, we don’t have the time!’ If we did a comedy version of Thrones we’d have enough for two series. We’re such a bunch of eejits, it’s the funniest thing.”

The actress also goes on to reveal how she enters a zone within her head before getting into the character of Cersei and begins blocking everything out, all to make her character even more convincing for her audience. Apparently, the cropped hair wig of hers is quite the inspiration for her as it always makes her feel quite angry whenever she enters her character.

“That makes me very angry, so that helps when they put [the wig] on at 6 a.m. and I’m like, f***.”

In the end, Lena Headey is a person who is different from her character in the series, Cersei Lannister no matter how much adoration and admiration she might have for her. And Cersei is who everyone will be watching in the new season which is about to air this April 14.

Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke lands a major role in Joseph McCarthy's biopic

Game of Thrones stars have spread their wings and made their mark in the filming industry with their amazing talent. We can find them regularly appearing on other popular shows and films, providing the fans with a nostalgic and warm feeling from their time on Game of Thrones. Richard Madden and Kit Harington have been cast in important roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming movie Eternals. Their co-star Emilia Clarke will soon be joining them in a yet non-disclosed role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Clarke has landed another important role recently, in the biopic McCarthy.

The film will take a look at demagogic US senator Joseph McCarthy, who drove the anti-communist doctrine known as McCarthyism, in the US in the 1950s. It will also explore what drove the lawyer and decorated former US Marine down a path that led to show-trials and venomous populism.

Clarke will take on the role of McCarthy’s politically ambitious wife Jean Kerr opposite Man of Steel’s Michael Shannon, who plays the titular role.

The saga of Joe McCarthy is timeless and the drama behind his rise to power, sobering,” producer Zach Studin said (via Deadline). “It is a powerful reminder to us all that truth and facts are the lifeblood of a free and open society.”
