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.

Emilia Clarke seen headed for the Oscars

Emilia Clarke, the talent behind The Mother of Dragons, Denaerys Targaryen was recently seen in Heathrow Airport headed for the 2019 Oscar Awards ceremony held in Los Angeles. She was seen in a bright red coat, a gray round-neck sweatshirt, black slacks, and a pair of sunglasses for the long flight all the way to Los Angeles.

After having wrapped up her work in ‘Game of Thrones,’ Emilia has been working on a movie about the FBI named ‘Above Suspicion’ which is set to be in theatres later this year.

Natalie Dormer to star in Penny Dreadful successor

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer, the actress who played Margery Tyrell in the show for the last six years has recently been chosen to star in a leading role in a successor to Penny Dreadful. The show will be created by John Logan and is to be named Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.

While the story to City of Angels will have no link to that of Penny Dreadful and will start off with a fresh cast of new characters, the story is still set to be a successor of sorts to the original story. It is set to start in 1938 Los Angeles amidst a lot of socio-political tensions tearing the country apart.

Detective Tiago Vega, played by Daniel Zovatto, gets assigned to investigate a gruesome murder in the middle of the city which leads him to explore the vast cultural heritage of the city fo Los Angeles including the Mexican-American heritage, Espionage attempts of the Third Reich and much more. True to its predecessor, Detective Tiago and his family get caught up in the supernatural powers looking to tear them apart.

Dormer is set to play the role of Magda in the series, a shapeshifter who can change her appearance to resemble anyone in the show. Other significant celebrities alongside Dormer include Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves.

While the cast of the show has more or less been decided upon, shooting and production are set to begin this year. However, there is neither a tentative nor a presumable date for the premiere of the show. In contrast, the eighth season of Game of Thrones already has a set premiere date and it is on the 14th of April, 2019. Actors of the series now look for roles elsewhere as the series comes to an end and fans eagerly wait to witness the end of an epic saga.
