Lena Headley says she’s never watched House of the Dragon because it’s ’too weird’

The actor isn't taking a trip down memory lane anytime soon.

Lena Headey has admitted it's ‘too weird’ to watch House of the Dragon.

The British actor who became a household name playing Queen Cersei Lannister recently sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to speak about her directorial debut for the movie The Trap.

At some point in the interview, journalist James Hibberd couldn't help but ask the actor if she had watched the Games of Thrones spinoff.

To which she responded with a simple: “Nah.”

Hibberd asked if it was ‘too weird’ to watch.

“Too weird. Yeah,” she replied.

A trip down memory lane? No thanks.

When asked if she ever misses the show, Headey responded with a resounding ‘No’.

“I miss the people — because you fall in love with people, and you create these family units. So that takes a little while to go though. There’s a weird grief from those relationships. But I don’t miss it. We did it. We put everything into it. It changed everyone’s f**king world, and we’ll always have it,” she added.

The actor also spoke about her final scene in the fantasy drama series, suggesting she wanted a different death scene for her character.


Also, apologies for the spoiler alert, but come on, people, you’ve had four years to watch the final episode.

“[Arya Stark actress Maisie Williams] 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 said.

While speaking to The Guardian in 2019, the 50-year-old touched upon how Cersei was unceremoniously killed in the mass destruction of the Red Keep.

Just a refresher: the Queen died in her brother, Jamie Lannister’s arms under a ton of bricks as the walls caved in.

The actor didn’t attend the final episode’s premiere in New York and barely spoke to the press following its release.

But she finally broke her silence regarding her thoughts on the ending.

“I will say I wanted a better death,” Headey said.

“Obviously you dream of your death. 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.”
