In “Game of Thrones,” fans have seen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) deliver insults that truly pinch the heart. Headey also showed that she has mastered the “art” of insults on Jimmy Kimmel chat show, reading “The Bachelor” insults like Cersei. However, it will be interesting to see how the popular character deals with insults when “Game of Thrones” Season 6 returns on April 24.
[Spoiler Alert] Cersei is spiteful. Her “power is power” dialogue to Petyr Baelish (Aidan Gillen) rightfully defines her character and she can go to any length to be in power.
So after she has suffered much in the hands of the Faith Militant, licked water from the ground, and never oped her tongue during her infamous naked walk of atonement with the Shame Nun ringing the bell, everybody will wait to see if she takes the insults in good spirit.
The Cersei that “Game of Thrones” fans have seen so far cannot forgive. She has a thing for killing people, right from the start, when she conspired against Jon Arryn and killed him with the help of Baelish. The scene was deleted but the truth has been revealed. Ned Stark (Sean bean) also met a similar fate after he told Cersei that he would let Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) know of her incest.
Cersei can be merciless, ruthless and evil. Moreover, now that The Mountain Ser Grogor Clegane (Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson) is fit and has taken a vow of silence till he cleans King’s Landing of her enemies, Cersei probably will not suddenly change as a person.
She wants vengeance. Hatred is boiling in her veins as her plot to show Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) as “below her” backfired badly when she too was thrown into Holy Prison for her sins by the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce).
However, Headey did a hilarious job when she read “The Bachelor” insults the Cersei way. She has really gotten into the skin of her “Game of Thrones” character and she performed the task with ease and with a goblet in her hands, writes Express.co.uk.
“I don't think there's one girl here who's competition; I think I'm way prettier than everyone else,” Headey delivered an insult looking straight into the camera.
