Game Of Thrones' Lena Headey reveals deleted scene solved major Cersei Lannister plot hole
Game Of Thrones’ series finale left a lot of big question marks over certain plot lines that seemed to disappear without a trace – but Lena Headey has now revealed one major moment that we never got to see.
The actress, who played Queen Cersei Lannister in the Westeros fantasy, has revealed what happened to the supposed baby her character was carrying when she met her maker.
Speaking at German ComicCon in Munich last weekend, Lena finally put an end to the speculation and revealed what had made the cutting room floor – and it would’ve been heartbreaking.
‘We shot a scene that never made it into season seven, which was where I lose the baby,’ she explained.
‘It was a really traumatic, great moment for Cersei, and it never made it in, and I kind of loved doing that because I thought it would have served her differently.’
Fans had speculated for a while that Cersei was faking her pregnancy in order to secure protection from her brothers Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage).
She was even seen pulling the same stunt and claiming to her most loyal soldier/bed buddy Euron Greyjoy (Pilou Aesbaek) that he was also the father of the unborn offspring.
But seeing as she was at least pregnant, it makes her final death scene all that more heartbreaking after realising that she had lost everything apart from Jaime when her world literally came crumbling down around her.
Lena had also previously admitted that she was hoping for a better death for her character, who in the lead up to the eighth and final season, had fought her way to the Iron Throne.
While she may not have been the nicest of characters, her cutthroat ambition was something the character became known for – and despite the cost, she did get what she wanted.
So when she did finally get killed off in the show’s penultimate episode, buried in the arms of her lover/brother as her palace fell to the ground, people weren’t exactly happy about it.
But it seems that wasn’t the only thing that missed the final edit of the last season of the fan favourite, which ended last month after a decade of build-up.
A battle involving a fight between 50 direwolves also didn’t make the cut – which is something we would’ve loved to have seen.
Game Of Thrones is available to catch-up on NOW TV.
