    Davif Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be remembered as the worse director of all time they wasted all their hardwork and efforts in making the Game of thrones which such a terrible & worse story on season 8 all the the fans are disappointed and dismayed!

    We had amazing actors and characters come and go. But Lena's and Emilia's, Maisie's and Sophie's consistency to their characters made the show what it was.

    I don’t know how people could hate your character in GoT. I’ve been infatuated with you since I first saw you playing Queen Gorgo. Cersei and Gorgo were both fierce lovers and mothers. My only regret with Cersei is that she didn’t have more reasons to smile and laugh more often. You have such a gorgeous smile, the type that makes me smile without even knowing or caring what I’m smiling about, if that makes sense.

    "Stay clear of the High Sparrow", I just remember how they made me side with and empathize with Cersei.
    And I think, imagine if they really took power, over all of Westeros. With a king not kind and cute like Tommen, but a true tyrant who really believed in them.
    Holy fook.

    She has this awesome face which looks beautiful and prejudiced at the same time, which fits Cersei Lannister perfectly.

    Great actress I’m shocked she never won an award for this show. And her character when we all hate I think we can all agree that she should have had a better death her and Jamie how about instead of Dany going mad for no reason after they win Cersei demands the wildfire cashes to be lit and destroys kings landing in order to kill Dany like if I can’t sit on the iron throne no one can but then Jamie comes in and stabs her like he did with the mad king. It be a very tragic ending but it would have made more sense than being killed by bricks

    She was the best written character in the show with exception of the final couple season. The nuances in her face were just so good. I love looking for scenes with her, here on RUclip, and just laugh at how much she blows me away. I’ll miss Cersei. Her character was just that of a woman who was jaded by what a woman sometimes has to endure to be on top. Just watch that scene with her and Sansa during the Blackwater battle with the Baratheon army. You’ll see what I mean.

    When they started playing the reigns of castermere I teared up. I love her so much, Cersei too tbh. She's the best actress on the show and I'm going to miss her so much.

    I luv Lena Heady and so admire her work as Queen Cersei who's such an unforgettable character. Sooo glad I discovered more of Lena's talent here throughout the years of GoT. It's been a joy watching the show. Nothing as grand as this will ever come again in a long time.

    I can never imagine anyone else playing Cersei Lannister with such perfection. Lena is such a talented actor. She really did that character justice!

  • Verzo

    Cersei is one of the best written characters in the entire show, showing pretty much every emotion a woman/queen/mother can express. Lena was the perfect choice!

    You made us hate cersie and yet still feel sad for her
    You've given us the best villain in TV history
    I mean I liked Cersie more than the night king and that's saying a lot

    It is a testament to her acting ability that before Game of Thrones, I simply loved Lena Headey. She was thin and tall and absolutely gorgeous and I had such the crush. Now, I see her as Cersei and she fills me with disgust.

    Let's all consider for a second that Lena Headey, who's been bringing to life one of the most easily hateable cunts on television, apparently has an admiration for very silly hats.

    I've had many Hollywood crushes but I've never been attracted to a mouth like Lena's.
    She has great eyes but every time I watch her in an interview, I find myself staring at her mouth - - that voluptuous, lullaby mouth.

    im sure they will miss this show but for some, it has opened so many doors and with good reason for the majority of unknowns it will have been the stepping stone to a career (rememeber harrison Ford) some of these people are tremendous actors and I cant wait to watch it all over again !!
