During the final season of Game of Thrones, fans practically went nuts trying to figure out whether Cersei Lannister was actually pregnant or not. Lena Headey, the actress who played Cersei, basically just proved that she was.
In an appearance at a comic book convention in Munich, Germany, she said that Cersei was originally supposed to lose the baby earlier on, but they cut the scene.
“We shot a scene that never made it into season 7, which was where I lose the baby. And it was a really traumatic, great moment for Cersei, and it never made it in,” she said. “And I kind of loved doing that because I thought it would have served her differently.”
So, quick refresher, there was a huge chunk of fans that thought Cersei’s pregnancy was fake and she was using it as a way to keep Jaime by her side instead of going to fight in the Battle for Winterfell. She was also using it to make Euron do whatever she wanted him to.
But if they shot a scene where she lost the baby, that means she definitely was pregnant in the first place, and if they chose to then not include the “lost baby” in the plot of season 8, that probably means she was in fact pregnant that entire time.
In a different interview this week with The Guardian, Lena also said she wanted a better death for her character.
“Obviously, you dream of your death,” she said. “You could go in any way on that show. So I was kind of gutted. But I just think they couldn’t have pleased everyone. No matter what they did, I think there was going to be some big comedown from the climb.”
Okay, well, lots of bummers here??? Woof.
