'Game Of Thrones' Star Lena Headey Wishes Cersei Had A 'Better Death'

Game of Thrones: THIS is how Lena Headey aka Cersei stays in touch with Kit Harington, Sophie Turner & others

"And I've got a few of my own gripes", said Headey.

So, while Lena Headey doesn't come down on Game of Thrones season 8 like a tonne of bricks, there are certainly things she maybe would've done differently. "But I haven't sat down drunkenly with [showrunners] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] yet", she told The Guardian in an interview published Sunday (July 16). "No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb", she added. (After all, the show has dispatched characters major and minor in pretty much every way imaginable.) As viewers know, Cersei dies in her lover/brother Jamie's arms as King's Landing crumbles on top of them, which some argue wasn't befitting of her character.

Headey's Cersei was crushed by falling masonry along with her brother-lover Jaime (played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) in the penultimate episode of the show, which had its season finale on 19 April.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Headey admits that she had some issues with how showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss handled the drama's denouement, but it would take more than a few drinks to get it out of her.

But according to Ocasio-Cortez, Trump's remarks on his willingness to listen to foreign "dirt" are over the line. Ocasio-Cortez has said previously that the country needs a progressive president.

Headey's commentary isn't the first time she has expressed some disappointment at how her storyline drew to a close on the massive show.

After that, it's no surprise to find out Headey wanted "a better death". She wanted her to have a big fight or even a death in a big set piece, but the more she thought about it, the more she felt that the death was fitting.

After working with the same people for nearly a decade, Headey said most of the cast stays in touch via messages. "We're all on a giant WhatsApp group which is a daily pile-on". "It's hilarious. You can tell who's been drinking on that one".

"It was fantastic", notes Headey.
