Game of Thrones star Lena Headey, who played Cersei Lannister on the show, revealed how the GoT stars stayed in touch and discussed Cersei's death on the show. Game of Thrones fans were not happy with this anticlimactic end for one of the most devious and cruel characters on the show.

Asked what she will say when she has that drink with writer duo, famously known as "D&D", she said, "I will say I wanted a better death".

Even though Headey wasn't pleased with Cersei Lannister's death, she's ready to move onto other projects. You could go in any way on that show. So I was pretty gutted.

Weeks after bidding the wickedest woman in Westeros an emotional farewell on Instagram, actress Lena Headey told the United Kingdom newspaper The Guardian she has a few of her "own gripes" she hopes to one day share with executive producers David Benioff and DB Weiss over a drink.

David Benioff and Dan Weiss are the creators of the medieval fantasy series for HBO, based on the books by George R.R. Martin. The character's death does not justify the poor execution of her death.

But she notes she eventually came around to the idea because Cersei and Jaime were going out together, just as they had come into this world. Her character, one of the most enchanting villains ever to appear on TV, met a pretty lousy demise when she was squished by rubble instead of being gutted by Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) or burned to a crisp by Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as fans might've hoped.

In the video above, it seems like Obama and Corden are about to do another round of Carpool Karaoke as she has done in the past. As a former first lady , it's no surprise that Michelle Obama wasn't about to let James Corden get away with dissing America.

Still, from the sounds of it, Headey's not going to let Cersei's wack death go unavenged.

"It's hilarious. You can tell who's been drinking on that one", Headey said.

'In that last moment, staring at her brother, waiting for the end, ' Headey said. But the death came quickly after they twins meet up.

Oh, and if you're still reading and not expecting spoilers, then that is on you!

"We're all on a giant WhatsApp group which is a daily pile-on", she adds. I think the guys who grew up on that show, they probably formed really deep friendships that will carry them through.
