“She gets rid of all her enemies, that she knows of anyway. Then there’s that moment where she goes to see dead Tommen and she thinks, ‘Ah. Well. I’ll take the crown.’ It’s so wrong,”  Headey said in an interview with EW.

Speaking on the scene with Cersei and her former jailor, Septa Unella, she said “The scene was meant to be worse, but they couldn’t do it. This is like the tame version.”

On Cersei ascending the throne, the actress said she doesn’t think Cersei’s reign will last for long. “Surely not! Not a chance in hell. It’s a moment of punctuation in the madness,” she said.

The actress also revealed the character she thinks should kill Cersei. According to her, she prepared to face her death as long as it is glorious and gory, and carried out by the right person.

She further stated that she thinks it will come at the hands of Arya or Tyrion.
