Lena Headey gets candid about the 'Game of Thrones' finale

One of the most infamous characters to come out of the hit show 'Game of Thrones' was "Cersei Lannister", portrayed by the talented Lena Headey (47). According to the actress, "Cersei" didn't quite get the swan song she deserved. In a candid chat with 'The Hollywood Reporter', she spilled the beans on her dream ending for the fictional queen, and it's not what you'd expect!

Lena Headey confessed that she and co-star Maisie Williams (24), who played "Arya Stark," fantasized about a final confrontation between their characters. "Maisie and I would fantasize about a Cersei and Arya showdown; that she would come back as Jaime. That was our dream. But they made different choices," she lamented.

Instead, Cersei met her end crushed under rubble with her brother (and lover) "Jaime Lannister". Lena Headey, however, understands why the showrunners didn't pen every dream scenario into the controversial final season. "I think in hindsight, everybody understands that [it was a difficult show to wrap up]," she said.

Headey also revealed that she hasn't kept up with the 'Game of Thrones' spin-off series, 'House of the Dragon', calling it "too weird" to watch. But she does miss the camaraderie with her co-stars. "I miss the people — because you fall in love with people, and you create these family units," the actress said.

Lena Headey isn't the only one who had issues with the iconic show's ending. Co-star Conleth Hill, who played "Varys", has previously voiced his criticism of the last two seasons.
