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 stars have spread their wings and have made their mark in the film-making 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 Eternels. Their co-star Emilia Clarke will soon be joining them in a yet non-disclosed role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Jacob Anderson has also been stirring up the internet recently with his new roles. A few weeks ago, Anderson made headlines when he joined the cast of Doctor Who in a recurring role. This time, he is in the news for being selected as the lead for AMC’s adaptation of Anne Rice’s Gothic vampire novel Interview With the Vampire.

Anderson, known for playing the Unsullied leader Grey Worm on Game of Thrones, will reunite with Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor in Interview With the Vampire. The show is expected to air on AMC in 2022. Anderson will play Louis, a young man who is seduced into the world of the undead by the amoral vampire Lestat, played by Sam Reid. Rolin Jones will serve as creator, showrunner, and executive producer of Interview With the Vampire.

Interview With Vampire was previously adapted as a 1994 feature film with Brad Pitt as Louis and Tom Cruise as Lestat.

Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa responds to Dave Bautista's buddy-cop movie proposal

It is always fun to watch our favorite stars team up on the screen. Long-time wrestling fans remember Dave Bautista as the 6’4″ hulking who dominated the ring with his awesome physique. He has impressed his fans with his on-screen presence as the Guardians of The Galaxy’s Drax the Destroyer. The wrestler turned actor is looking forward to expanding the variety in his roles, and he wants to do it with none other than his actor friend Jason Momoa.

Bautista met the Game of Thrones alum on the sets of the upcoming sci-fi film Dune, and they quickly became close buddies. He recently posted an idea on his official Twitter account, asking Momoa if he would like to team up for a buddy-cop movie directed by David Leitch.

Momoa quickly responded to his buddy call, making it public on The Late Late Show with James Corden. he said, “I’m not on Twitter, but he literally texted me about four days ago, going, ‘We need to do a buddy cop film.’ We love each other, you know, obviously we met on See, we’re on Dune together, so I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And he’s like, ‘Let’s do it in Hawaii.’ I’m like, ‘Let’s do it.’ I’m like, ‘I got an idea.’ So it’s off to the races now. We’re doing it.”

Hopefully, things will work out for the duo and we might get one of the best action-cop flicks we have ever seen. What do you think about the anticipated team-up? Tell us in the comments below!

Doctor Who adds Game of Thrones Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) in recurring role

Game of Thrones had an ensemble of the most amazing cast. You can find them frequently in other famous franchises, some even joining big production houses such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel’s Eternals is about to drop, starting Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington and Richard Madden. Their co-star Emilia Clarke is soon to follow them. Other than that, another Game of Thrones alum is set to join a famous fictional universe. Jacob Anderson, popular for playing Grey Worm on the show, will be joining the ever sprawling cast of Doctor Who.

Doctor Who is a pop culture icon, entertaining a huge following of fans over decades. Jacob has been cast as the mysterious Vinder, a recurring character who will pop up throughout the series. Vinder will join forces with the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Dan (John Bishop) as the Time Lord faces her biggest ever adventure battling the forces of evil across time and space.

Details about Vinder are being kept under wraps but according to Jacob, he is ‘adventurous and dynamic. “The Doctor has been a part of my life forever, from watching and rewatching the serials on VHS as a kid and being terrified, to unexpectedly finding my eyes watering when the Tenth Doctor said “I don’t want to go”, I always wanted to live in the Whoniverse,” Jacob shared.

Not only has a lifelong dream of mine now been fulfilled, but to be playing a character as fun, adventurous and dynamic as Vinder is the cherry on top. This is very cool.”
