Season 7 of Game of Thrones came to an epic end on Sunday night with a much anticipated reunion between Cercei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen.
Filming of the epic meeting took place in Spain last November. EW was there asking actress Lena Heady what must her character feel. With Cersei being Cersei, it wasn’t like the meeting could have gone amicably, however, fans now get to know what was running trough Cersei’s mind as she saw her nemesis flying in on a dragon.
“I think she’s immediately envious because Daenerys is more beautiful and younger than she is and the prophecy says somebody younger and more beautiful will take her place so I’m sure that’s at the forefront of her mind.”
EW also asked the GoT star about her character’s big lie, telling Jon Snow and Daenerys she will fight with them against the army of the dead. Instead, she plans on strengthening her position and forces. “I think her lie will be very shocking,” Headey predicted. “She’s such a bitch. She’s so unforgiving of everybody.”
The 8th and final season of Game of Thrones will begin filming in October. As the production of one episode can take as long as 9-11 months to complete, season 8 could premiere as early as summer 2018. However, there have been rumors the final season won’t air until 2019.
