Here’s a really interesting interview with Lena where she talks for the first time about her pregnancy and her childhood. Enjoy.

The actress has nothing in common with the manipulative Cersei from Game Of Thrones, except the strong woman and opinionated bit.

LENA Headey may play the all powerful Cersei Lannister in Game Of Thrones but in real life she doesn’t want to rule the world.

“I’ve been doing this for 23 years. I started at 17 and did lots of little movies. I’ve had an up and down sort of path; so to land here at the age I am, when it starts to become tricky for a woman in this industry, to have this job on HBO – one of the best jobs in the world and to get to play this character – I feel very lucky.”

Over the course of those 23 years, she’s appeared in over 40 movies and a number of TV series but it is her role as Cersei in Game Of Thrones that lifts her to the pantheon of great actresses.

At her press conference in Beverly Hills, California, she’s a publicist’s nightmare – her very words.

Hair pitch black, unruly and misshapen, there’s nothing regal about her.
But in front of the camera, she’s a powerhouse, a ruthless, beautiful woman. You can’t take your eyes off her.

The 41-year-old who is pregnant with her second child is not comfortable doing press, and she’s vocal about it. “I like to be private and I like to do my work, do the best I can, but it’s not about that anymore, it’s about doing photo shoots, going on talk shows and being a part of that which I understand but is never the easiest thing for me to do. So I dig my heels in until they say I’m going to get fired. It’s that inane press, a celebration of nothing, that bothers me. I think it’s out of control, and I don’t want to be a part of it. Besides I’m honest, too, which is troublesome because I’m not good at lying.”

Game of Thrones’ fifth season opened with a glimpse into Cersei’s past, and the root of her paranoia. As a young girl, she visits a fortune teller to learn her future, and receives a disturbing prophecy instead. Yes, she will be queen one day, but she will have a rival: “Another, younger and more beautiful, to cast you down and take all that you hold dear.” She would have children, but they would die. (This fortuneteller was short on specifics — dying is inevitable for almost everyone in Westeros.) Still, these vague forecasts have been enough to haunt Cersei over the years, and explain why she has been so obsessive about some things (ahem, Margaery), and so dismissive of others (just about any legitimate threat to the Seven Kingdoms).

“She’s rather shortsighted in all of this,” actress Lena Headey laughed. “She’s about to learn some really severe lessons.”

When we caught up with Headey during an international press day for Game of Thrones in Belfast, she agreed on this point about her character: Cersei is the queen of bad decisions. “She doesn’t really see the bigger consequence,” Headey said. “It’s part of what I love about her. She’s not too savvy about things.” Cersei is no fool, but she doesn’t bother to stay as informed as the other members of the Small Council, or to think long-term. “When Tywin tried to school her on some finer points last year, she was a bit like, ‘Hmmm?'” Headey said.
