The actress then thanked her fans, friends and family on Instagram for supporting her and congratulating her for getting the part. She spoke to her followers on Instagram Live.

My brain is fried. It’s just insane,” Carey said to her followers. “I auditioned. It was a fairly long audition process and I didn’t know what the project was or the character was until I got it. I can’t answer any questions or who I’ll be in scenes with but stay tuned for more and I love you and have a great Tuesday!”

Game of Thrones wrapped up filming nearly two years ago. The streaming network is known for its secrecy when it comes to filming its shows and movies. However, when it comes to Game of Thrones, the security has been extra tight. They are extremely mum about the upcoming Game of Thrones projects as well. The only thing we know for sure is that House of The Dragon is currently on its way for release in 2022. And several other interesting projects are in development. With so many things hidden under a veil of confidentiality, HBO still manages to get the audience hyped up by releasing a few photos every now and then. Recently, they released an unseen photo from the filming period of Game of Thrones on Instagram.

HBO dropped a behind-the-scenes image from the original series, showing us Maisie Williams in costume as Arya Stark ready to dice someone up with the caption: “A girl is ready for anything.”

The picture appears to have been taken from season 3, when Arya was travelling with Gendry and Hot Pie after leaving Harrenhal — the hair and height look about right. It’s hard to tell by the clothes alone since Arya didn’t have a chance to change for a while there.

Five years ago on 26th June, one of the greatest episodes of Game of Thrones was aired.

The Season 6 finale which features Cersei Lannister taking revenge on all those who wronged her in the cruellest way possible. It gave goosebumps to the audience. 5 years since its filming, fans all over the world are applauding Lena Headey’s performance in this fateful episode.

Even though many joke that Lena was paid an incredible amount for simply standing and drinking wine for the entire episode, it was her powerful presence that made the scene effective. The ominous tone of the episode provides a tense atmosphere, where the viewers know there’s something wrong, but can’t put their finger on it. It is when the Sept blows up, the plan is finally revealed.

I’ll never understand how Lena Headey didn’t win multiple Emmy Awards & Golden Globes for her phenomenally evil portrayal of Cersei Lannister.

I despised the character for her cruelty, while admiring her intense loyalty & badass scenes at the same time.
