Lena Headey is messing with ‘Game of Thrones’ fans’ heads
Lena Headey is a monster. I don’t mean that her “Game of Thrones” character, Cersei Lannister, is a monster, though that’s true. I mean that she herself is a stone cold sociopath. She’s toying with “Game of Thrones” fans and she doesn’t even feel bad about it.
Headey appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” wearing a shirt that says “I’m not sorry,” surrounded by a heart. It’s a clear reference to her Instagram head games, and she should be sorry, because she’s driving people to madness.
Headey’s Instagram has been alarming “Game of Thrones” fans’ delicate spoiler radar for some time now. Three months ago she posted the above picture of herself fooling around with her costar Pedro Pascal, who played Oberyn Martell. Of course, as we’ve since learned, Oberyn got his head crushed by the Mountain, which makes Headey’s skull-mauling photo a spoiler.
Two months ago, Headey posted another seemingly spoileriffic photo: A bunch of rocks arranged into the shape of a heart, captioned “my stone heart.” Fans of the books know that a character named Lady Stoneheart makes an important appearance, and they assumed that Headey had once more spoiled one of this season’s major plot twists. However, the finale has come and gone, and there’s no sign of Lady Stoneheart.
In other words, she’s messing with us. And now she’s taunting us about it. I think Lena’s been a Lannister for too long.
