    What I see is that most people including me preferred daenerys to sit on the iron throne but daenerys character's body language was more like a conqueror a liberater who is wild and epic whereas cersei was more like a queen both in her body language and her instincts.....Lena was amazing

    The only character they did justice to in season 8 was the hound. Everyone else got ruined... especially jaime Lannister

    she got to play one of the most complex, amazing character ever written.
    and she fucking killed it in these last few seasons.

    It is an absolute crime that she didn’t win an Emmy for playing Cersei. She was fucking awesome! Y’know..... when the writers actually had her do stuff lol.

    Brilliant actress. Extremely gorgeous IRL

  • Stranger Things happen in Riverdale

    So the younger, more beautiful queen that was supposed to take over Cersei was Bran?
    Makes sense.

    Let us all come together and say thank you to George R.R. Martin and Lena Heady for presenting what is by far the greatest character in television and film history. Lena Heady deserves so much more than what the academy awards have given her. No other villainous character can ever be better than what Cersei was/is/ and in future come to be. Even after her death, I say, "long may she reign". I will always love her. R.I.P My Queen.

    I really love her, both Lena and Cersei. For me she didn't die and season 8 was just a bad joke.

  • Marie Blanco

    Uggghh i also dont like the way she died. It's not that i wanted her to die a slow painful death (although cersei deserves it) i just feel like the way she died, it wasnt a fitting way for her to die... it felt very anti climatic and i feel like there was a better way for her character to die...
    It feels kind of unfair cuz they have an amazing cast who are talented and dedicated but they (writers, directors??) Didnt give the series, the cast, the fans, the author any justice.

    Absolutely amazing how someone so sweet could play such a convincing and believably horrible tyrannical beast who also showed a humanity that at some points would have you sympathizing with.

    *lena is a BRILLIANT actress. she made me despise her guts to my absolute core! and ive admired her as an actor way before i even watched GOT (which sadly i only started this year and finished last night! man what an ending) but the way she portrayed Cersei was nothing short of genius. if she could make me hate her that much, man wowww. major props to you Lena!!! amazing work!!!!! BRAVO!* #clapclapclap

    Just realsied that in the first season Sophie and Maisie look at least a good five years apart in terms of age but were actually just a year apart. Sophie only looked so much more older due to her height.
