Cersei Had a Miscarriage in Deleted Game of Thrones Scene

Game of Thrones delivered a number of major final season deaths, but perhaps none were as underwhelming as the fate of Cersei Lannister.

For those who don't remember, Cersei died in the arms of her lover/brother, Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), under a ton of bricks as the walls around them crumbled.

While some didn't trust Cersei's pregnancy to be more than another tactic for control, Headey confirmed that the pregnancy was real and that Cersei originally lost the baby in a scene cut from the show's prior season. "And it was really kind of traumatic and great moment or Cersei and it never made it in", she revealed in a video posted by an apparent attendee.

During a recent appearance at Munich Comic-Con in Germany, Headey explained that the Thrones writers originally intended for Cersei to have a miscarriage after she became pregnant with her brother Jaime's child in season 7.

Over the course of the season, some fans theorized that Cersei was lying about her pregnancy to keep Jaime by her side instead of going to fight in the Battle of Winterfell.

What she didn't plead guilty to were the sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy charges in the indictment. And since the group never released any of the slaves' collateral, "Where's the extortion?" he asked.

"Obviously you dream of your death", she said.

The star recently revealed that she wasn't exactly thrilled with the way her character exited Westeros for good, admitting to United Kingdom outlet The Guardian that she "wanted a better death" for the icy queen. Lena stated that the scene from season seven, had Cersei "lose the baby".

In another interview with Entertainment Weekly, Headey revealed that her initial reaction to the character's final scene was "mixed". "You could go in any way on that show". They just wouldn't have spent the whole time scratching their heads about whether a Baby Lion or Drowned Prince really was on the way.

See? We're not alone in wishing things had turned out differently.
