There will be interesting times ahead for Cersei (Lena Headey) in “Game of Thrones” season 8. An actress who previously played a body double for Headey will be coming back to the show. Meanwhile, Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) spoke about her last day with the costume-fitting team in a recent interview.

In a post on Twitter, the agency Industry Casting announced that Rebecca Van Cleave is currently in Belfast, filming for the last season of the popular TV show. The announcement states that the actress will be reprising her role as a body double for Headey.

Cleave previously played Headley’s double for the infamous Walk of Shame scene, in which Cersei had to atone for her sins by walking naked on the streets of King’s Landing. The return of the actress suggests there may be another big scene involving nudity for Cersei in the final season.

With Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) travelling north to join the war against the Night King, there may be no sex scenes with her brother this time around. What fans may get to see is the birth of her baby.

The other more likely scenario is Cersei getting married to Euron (Pilou Asbæk) and sharing his bed. Cleave may be involved in the sex scene between these two characters.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Coveteur, Turner explained how certain things made her feel that the show is indeed coming to an end. The actress explained how her final day at costume-fitting felt like a regular thing on the show until she said goodbye to the crew members. The team apparently reminded her that the day was probably the last time they would get to see her.

“Game of Thrones” season 8 is the last season of the series. Turner said that it will begin to get emotional for the cast and crew as they near the end of filming in the coming months.
