'I wanted a better death': Lena Headey on Cersei Lannister's end in Game of Thrones
The final season of one of the most popular Television shows, Game of Thrones, received mixed reviews from fans. While some liked the end, a lot of them made memes and also signed a petition to remake the final season.
Meanwhile, actor Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, opened up about her character in an interview with a leading media organisation. “I invested as a viewer and I have my favourite characters. And I’ve got a few of my own gripes. But I haven't sat down drunkly with David (Benioff) and Dan (Weiss) yet.”
When asked what will she say to them, Headey said, “I will say I wanted a better death.”
She further added, “Obviously you dream of your death. You could go in any way on that show. So I was kind of gutted. But I just think they couldn't have pleased everyone. No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb.”
The finale episode aired on May 20 (in India).
