Lena Headey discusses what lies ahead for her character
The romantic relationship between Game Of Thrones‘ brother and sister duo Cersei and Jaime Lannister is set to get even weirder in the new series.
Lena Headey plays Cersei in the hit show and was last seen walking through the streets of King’s Landing naked, having being imprisoned and starved earlier in the fifth season. With season six around the corner, Headey told Entertainment Weekly that this rock-bottom position makes her character’s storyline different to before.
“It’s probably her most interesting season,” said the actress. “She really has nothing to lose and she has everything to gain from a horrible position she finds herself in.”
Don’t expect things in her love life to be any more straight forward either. As Headey explains, “Her relationship with Jaime is at an all-time weird level, It’s juicy, and it’s so fucking dark.”
With the show set to return to screens in the US and UK on April 24, fans are split between avoiding spoilers and actively trying to work out what the new episodes will bring. A number of spoilers have leaked ahead of S6, most recently when Ian McShane talked about the fate of his character after joining the cast for the new episodes.
McShane is not the only cast member to give away secrets this year. Sophie Turner revealed that her character Sansa Stark won’t be killed off in the series while Emilia Clarke may have revealed the fate of character Jon Snow at a recent awards ceremony.
