Lana Headey reveals that she took nothing from the Game of Thrones set

As Game of Throne comes to an end and the entire cast behind the show return their costumes to their appropriate places, it is only natural to have a sense of attachment to the show where they worked for so long. As a result, a lot of the members in the cast have taken a souvenir of sorts from the set as a keepsake of their time at the filming of the epic show.

However, the case is simply not the same for the actress behind Cersei Lannister as Headey reveals that she took nothing but simple memories from the Game of Thrones set. She must either be really fond of it or perhaps she does not need a keepsake to remember all the times which she spent there. However, she did reveal in an interview about how she liked the moments with the rest of the characters that she had filmed.

“I liked the stuff I did with Charles Dance, who played my dad,” says Headey. “It’s all been glorious. The main thing was all the stairs all over King’s Landing are really slippery, so the outtakes are just full of all of us going ‘uughhyh’!”

In fact, she even mentioned that she was happiest about not having to take one particular thing around with her. As most fans of Lena might be able to guess, it was Cersei’s wig which she had to wear every morning before her scenes were shot. She was apparently so angry about having to wear the wig, that it helped her channel herself into the character of Cersei.

“I didn’t take anything…I just couldn’t wait to get the wig off,” says Headey about the wig. “I was like, ‘Yeeeesss!’ I never have to wear it again!”

She touched and covered a fair few other topics in the interview as well including who’s most likely to spill the beans about the new season, which is probably why Kit Harrington isn’t appearing on quite as many interviews these days. She also revealed how the last day of her shooting was not the last day of shooting for the show, but also reminded viewers that they don’t shoot in any specific order.

“To play the bad guy is just such good fun,” says Headey about Cersei. “I can do all the things I can’t really do in my life.”

In the end, she also revealed how she thought that Game of Thrones would never be a success when she initially started acting based solely off the pilot script. However, the show caught on rather virally and made sure she could never be more wrong again in her life. Right now, she enjoys the direction which the show took and remains rather excited about the very final season of the show. However, she did not reveal anything about the show herself till the end and avoided all questions rather cunningly. This means that everyone has to now wait for the final season of the show to be released.

Kit Harington looks back at his fondest memory from Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones has been over for a while now, but we’re still obsessing over it.

Read on!

Kit was recently at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards where he was the only Game of Thrones actor nominated for one. Ryan Seacrest of E! Caught up with them for a short interview bit on the red carpet. Check the video out:

Seacrest noted he was the only Game of Thrones member present at the awards (except Jason Momoa). Kit said:

“I haven’t got my gang. It’s odd. I haven’t been to these things without the rest of us around. So I’m a little jealous of the Succession dudes.”

Kit was nominated for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series (Drama) category but did not win. Seacrest then asked him if he still thought about Jon Snow:

“I think about him all the time. It was always just getting into costume the first day back, getting into that outfit and just sort of being back on set, back with him on character. I loved it. It’s in retrospect that you start loving it. It does go by fast. Ten years, like that.”

Well, we hope Kit knows that we miss Jon Snow just as much as he does.  what do you guys think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Games of Thrones' cast dissects the success of the show

On asked about why the show became such a global cultural phenomenon, Maisie Williams gestured towards herself!

Sophie Turner on the other hand said:

“Fantastical elements that gave the escapism, the very human interaction and emotions” was what she believed was the perfect combination.

Kristofer Hivju a.k.a. Tormund Giantsbane on the show thought:

“It is so much that is unexpected, it doesn’t follow any rules of storytelling.” He also added the sheer amount of hard work that about 2000 people put in on the show had also something to do about making the show a giant success.

Jerome Flynn that played the character of Bronn on the show said:

“The richness of character that George originally created had so much wide array of emotions. The job the makers did of translating the characters from book to the screen and also the epic nature that HBO brought to the show”

Flynn believed are all part of the reasons why the show was such a massive success. Isaac Hempstead on the other hand believed:

“The attention to detail on the show was unparalleled. Literally, the books on the show were handwritten by the props department and you might only see it for 2 minutes..”

He also credited writer George R. R. Martin for creating such a vast universe through his books.

Wasn’t it nice to see the whole cast talking about the show so fondly? Let us know why you thought the show became such a big success?
