The sixth season of "Game of Thrones" ended with Cersei getting her heart desire after seasons of fighting and scheming, but also losing her last child.
It was a night of both triumph and failure for the character who got her heart desire after seasons of fighting and scheming, but also lost her last child.
Finally sitting on the Iron Throne, Lena Headly who plays Cersei spoke to Wrap on her character's mental state, relationship with Jamie, and her future.
On her mental state, the actress said "The thing that gave her humanity was her kids. They’re gone now. Her father is gone. Tyrion is gone. There’s no one to tell her she can’t, she’s stupid, she’s just a woman."
On the look exchanged by Cersei and Jamie in finale, she said, "I think when Jaime looks anything other than happy, she has a “f— you” moment. This will be such an interesting season for them. Where do they go? It’s so toxic now."
On her future, Heady said "I don’t feel comfort, I’m pondering where she can go from here. I don’t think it will end well. Who knows?"
In a previous interview, the actress revealed the character she thinks should kill Cersei. According to Heady who thinks Arya or Tyrion should kill Cersei, she is prepared to face her death as long as it is glorious and gory, and carried out by the right person.
Lena Headey is nominated alongside Emilia Clarke and Maisie Williams for 2016 Emmy Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
