The tension between the two characters was immediately palpable on their first meeting.
With the seventh season of 'Game Of Thrones' wrapped up, fans are chomping at the bit to find out any information they can about the series' final six episodes which will make up a conclusive eighth season. Rounding off the story is going to be a tough task for creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, especially so since author George R R Martin of the 'A Song of Ice & Fire' novel series on which the show is based, is yet to complete the book series.
Lena Headey currently rules the Seven Kingdoms as Cersei Lannister
Of course, the pair know the direction in which they're heading, and with the wall now being completely destroyed by the White Walker army's Night King and his reanimated dragon, formerly Viserion, a lot of drama and chaos is headed the way of the Seven Kingdoms.

She wants women to have voices within the movie and television industry.
Lena Headey has become quite the feminist figure in Hollywood, whether she intended to or not. Her strong characters, including the evil but powerful Cersei Lannister in 'Game Of Thrones', coupled with her tenacious personality have made her a massive role model for young female actors - and, indeed, young girls all round.
Lena Headey at the 'Game of Thrones' season 6 premiere
Unfortunately, it is still a fact in this day and age that many emerging actresses are forced to get their roles not through their natural talent, but through using their sexuality to essentially pay for it. 43-year-old Lena Headey reveals how that's something that she never wanted to do, even if it meant losing out on roles. She wanted to change this 'boys club' theme from the beginning.

Viral video ties in 'GoT' soundbites to the lyrics of Gloria Gaynor classic.
'Game Of Thrones' fans have gotten to experience a wonderful taste of irony with a viral video featuring the cast 'singing' along to Gloria Gaynor's 1978 hit 'I Will Survive'. It must've have taken some 'GoT' lover a long time to put together but it's so worth it.
The cast of 'Game of Thrones' at the Emmy Awards
So far the gritty fantasy show in its 6 seasons has killed off more than 100 characters, so it seems fabulously appropriate to have the cast's lines dubbed to the tune of the number one diva classic. The video merges together various clips and soundbites from the show so that it appears they are speaking the lyrics to 'I Will Survive'.
We can't decide who's more violent: Cersei or Arya.
'Game Of Thrones' season 6 has been quite the rollercoaster, leaving fans a little disturbed, frequently relieved and, finally, purely stunned. In fact, finale episode 'The Winds of Winter', which aired on Sunday (June 26th 2016), has already been lauded as one of the greatest television episodes of all time and for a very good reason.
Daenerys reunites with Tyrion
Throughout the ten episodes we've seen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) free herself from the clutches of the Dothraki and return home on Drogon, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) resurrected and executing his killers before raising an army with Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) to defeat the Boltons, Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) killing the Waif and finally becomes the badass she was always going to be, and Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)... well, she exacts some pretty brutal revenge. Be warned: spoilers ahead.
It's nearly upon us!
The 'Game Of Thrones' season 6 premiere took place at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last night (April 10th 2016) and, as expected, arrivals were bombarded with questions about whether or not Jon Snow was really dead. Kit Harington wasn't there to reitereate his own denial of Snow's continued existence, but he would have been proud of everyone for their insistence.
Emilia Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen
The cast of probably the most eagerly anticipated season premiere of this Golden Globe-winning fantasy series yet took to the grey carpet to ring in the arrival of the new episodes, the first of which will air on HBO in two weeks. Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen was among them, as fans continue to fret over what's become of her character. From what we've seen in pictures and trailers so far, Daenerys is stranded after pet dragon Drogon refused to take her back home and has now run into a Dothraki horde. Some snippets have shown her as being held hostage, while in others she appears to be free.

In a world where the undead are waiting around every corner to tear you limb from limb, naturally you have worries more pressing than trying to penetrate the brooding aloofness of Mr Darcy. And yet, Elizabeth Bennet's dexterity in destroying zombies leaves her able to ponder the trivial moments of her life; not that potential marriage is regarded as such within the Bennet household. Elizabeth's parents are determined to wed their daughters to some wealthy newcomers, and while she isn't the prettiest of her sisters, her down-to-earth and bookish nature is enough to catch Mr Darcy's eye. But this isn't a straight-forward relationship; this couple have a lot of feelings to unlock while defending each other against flesh-eating fiends. Let's just hope death doesn't get in the way of what could truly be a match made in heaven.
Sam Ellis is a high-flying United States Attorney looking at a likely rise to the top in his political career. He appears to have everything; the career, a child, a loving and supportive wife, and he's bursting with charisma.

Thus, he attempts to calm his yearning by seeking out the services of a prostitute, but finds that once he starts he is unable to stop. It isn't long before his addiction to escorts starts affecting his everyday life when he uses them as a break from the increasing pressures of the media to run for U.S. Congress. Now it's not only his wife and his immediate colleagues he has to worry about keeping his secret from, but the whole of America.

Lena Headey reportedly used a body double during filming for the finale of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 5. Warning! This article contains spoilers.
Lena Headey employed a body double for a scene in the finale of Game Of Thrones season 5. Headey’s character Cersei Lannister had to complete a walk of atonement through King’s Landing from her prison at the High Septon to the Red Keep. Surrounded by her social inferiors, Cersei was sworn at and covered in a number of unpleasant fluids (we’ll let you draw your own conclusions as to what they were). For Cersei, who is notoriously proud, it was a serious fall from grace and one she will not forget any time soon. Roll on the wave of revenge in season 6!
Lena Headey used a body double during filming for the season finale of Game of Thrones season 5.
Season Five of 'Game of Thrones' has wrapped up, but with such a good series overall, we had to take a look at our favourite moments from the season.
With the stunning and shocking season finale for 'Game Of Thrones' Season Five having taking audiences by storm, it's time to take a look back over the season and discuss what we thought were the best moments from one of the best rated seasons of one most critically acclaimed shows of all time. While there were plenty of twists and turns this season (in addition to boat rides), these are our top five:
Kit Harington's Jon Snow seems to have bitten the dust
Cersei's Arrest: Lena Headey has put in a great performance from the start, making the incestuous, alcoholic and power-hungry Cersei Lannister both a compelling and hated character since the show's first episode. That said, seeing her chickens coming home to roost when Jonathan Pryce's High Sparrow took the power she had given him, and threw her in prison for her various crimes.

'Game of Thrones' is infamous for killing off its characters, so without paying attention to the books (as the show seems to be doing) we looked at who we think is destined to go the way of dodo.
Prince Doran - We've only seen Prince Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) in one episode so far, he's already made a strong impression on everyone. The elder brother of fan favourite Oberyn, who came to a horribly messy end in the last season, Prince Doran is trying his best to keep the peace in Dorne, and stop his people from seeking revenge against the Lannisters. It stands to reason, however, that his death would make give them a great reason to rise up and start a war.
Kit Harington in 'Game of Thrones'
Brienne/Podrick - Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) and Podrick (Daniel Portman) have been giving us a good dose of the "two buddies traveling", following in the footsteps of Tyrion (Peter Dinklage ) and Bronn (Jerome Flynn), and Arya (Maisie Williams) and the Hound (Rory McCann). The problem is, that each of those has come to a rather disastrous ending at some point, and the death of Brienne or Podrick seems likely - especially with what they seem to be getting themselves into.
