Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey says Cersei isn’t a villian, she’s a survivor

Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey talks about Cersei and more, in an interview

We have all seen the rise and fall, and rise again, of Cersei Lannister, with Season 6 having developed her character the most, yet. The end of the season placed her in a position of power, but we have all been wondering since : How long will she exactly reign? Everybody seems to be coming for the throne, and there is hardly anybody who doesn’t want to see Cersei dead. Lena Headey, the actress who portrays Cersei in Game of Thrones, talked a bit about where Cersei might be heading, and more, in an interview with Mashable. Read on!

Talking about how she plays Cersei, Lena said :

“I don’t play her as a villain. I don’t set out to do that consciously, I just play a woman who is a survivor and will do exactly what a man would do — which is, you know, murder somebody when you’re in a war. Maybe just not directly.”

When asked whether Cersei might get a redemption, Headey said :

“I think that would ruin it.”

Lena also said that Cersei does everything needed to stay in a position of power.

The women on Game of Thrones conquered season 6, and here's how they emerged victorious

Headey is also an advocate for Syrian refugees, and working with the International Rescue Committee (IRC). She recently teamed up with photographer Tara Todras Whitehill to produce a photography series titled “It Could Be Us”, showing the hardships these refugees face. Talking about the current state of the world, she said :

“I think it’s all worrying, do you know what I mean? I think the position we’re in right now, the world over is worrying. I don’t particularly see any sort of great, strong humanitarian leaders amongst us at the moment.”

Well, Cersei might not get a redemption, but at least Lena Headey is doing her bit in making the world a better place.

George R. R. Martin talks about House of The Dragon Teaser Trailer

House of The Dragon’s first teaser trailer is finally here! The teaser was released by HBO at the end of the HBO Max European launch event and it features a voiceover by Matt Smith who plays the role of Prince Daemon Targaryen. It broke the internet as soon as it was released, and fans are going crazy over the accuracy and detail shown in the teaser. It was watched by over 10 million viewers in less than three days of its launch! And George R. R. Martin has something to say about the teaser trailer.

Martin wrote on his blog Not a Blog:

Yes, I know, most of you have already seen this. (What can I say? I am busy. Juggling so many balls, so many projects, posting stuff on my Not A Blog is not my highest priority, so things may always be a little bit behind here).

For the handful who have been off the internet the past few days, however… HBO has released the first official teaser/trailer for HOUSE OF THE DRAGON. Here ’tis.

Enjoy.

(And yes, I love it too. Ryan and Miguel and their team are kicking ass and taking names).”

Looking at the current speed of production, we can hope Martin’s earlier prediction about the prequel’s release will come to fruition. What do you think about House of The Dragon? Talk to us in the comments below!

A young Alicent Hightower takes over the Iron Throne in Leicester Square

The filming for Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon is progressing really smoothly, besides minor delays everything’s looking good for HBO’s high priority project. HBO recently dropped the first official teaser trailer for House of The Dragon, and fans are going crazy about it. That being said, we know that filming for the prequel show will be starting in Spain the next week, and the cast and crew members are gathering up at the Castle of La Calahorra.

The actors are taking a small break from their busy schedule before the shoot resumes, and it seems Emily Carey, who will be playing a young Alicent Hightower in the show is having fun with a replica of the Iron Throne.

Carey recently posted a picture on her official Twitter account. She seems to be enjoying a quiet day at Leicester Square, and her preferred choice of furniture is the Iron Throne replica. She wrote in the caption, “Found this chair in Leicester Square (wearing green was coincidental).” #HOTD #HouseofTheDragon #AlicentHightower

Do you think the future Queen of Westeros was foreshadowing a scene from House of The Dragon? Wearing green was coincidental? Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.
