One of the most hated characters in George R.R. Martin's book series the "Song of Ice and Fire," Cersie Lannister played by Lena Headey is found guilty by the "Faith of the Seven" in HBO's upcoming season. Driven out in her own home, Kings Landing, the Queen Regent is forced to endure humiliation beyond what most characters in the Seven Kingdoms for "Game of Thrones" season 5.
Britain's Queen Elizabeth looks at the Iron Throne as she meets members of the cast on the set of the television series Game of Thrones in the Titanic Quarter of Belfast, Northern Ireland, June 24, 2014.
After the shocking twist in the show's season 4 finale, Cersie have to move fast in order to keep her post as queen and accuses Margaery Tyrell, played by Natalie Dormer, of infidelity to stop her from marrying Tommen, played by Dean-Charles Chapman. Still mourning from the death of Joffrey, Margaery gets thrown into prison cell thanks to Cersie's accusations knowing that once Margaery will become queen Tomme will never listen to her.
Although she was successful of throwing the soon-to-be-queen to prison, the "Huddersfield" star is set to face her worst rival and this time she has no one to save her. "Cersei messes up several times as Queen Regent, most notably in allowing the faith-based militant group called The Order of the Seven to gain power," according to Celebdirty Laundry spoilers.
"Her own rash decision to empower the militant-based Faith of the Seven backfires on her, as the high militant of the Faith decides to turn the tables and accuses Cersei of infidelity. In fact, Cersei is accused of many things including infidelity and incest, and it eventually comes to a place where she loses all power and is forced to undergo a trial. During the trial, she has to shave her head and strip naked, and then proceed to walk through the streets of King's Landing," based on Fans Share spoilers.
Rubbing shoulders with royalty during the Queen's visit in the "Game of Thrones" set in Northern Ireland, Headey joined other cast members to meet and greet Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh during their state visit in Belfast. Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss led the tour together with actor Kit Harrington who plays Jon Snow and Leslie Rose who played Ygritte in the epic fantasy series.
Also known for her role as Spartan Queen Gorgo in "300," the actress got her first taste of acting as a student at Shelley College and was cast opposite Jeremy Irons in "Waterland" in 1992.
