Lena Headey had hoped for a more dramatic death on 'Game of Thrones'.
The 45-year-old actress' alter ego, Queen Cersei Lannister, died in the arms of her twin brother and lover, Ser Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) when the Red Keep collapsed and their exit was blocked on this week's penultimate episode, and the British star admitted her initial reaction to her final scene was "mixed".
She said: "I wanted her to have some big piece or fight with somebody."
But after Lena talked over the scene with Nikolaj, she realised it was the "perfect end" for them both.
She told Entertainment Weekly: "The more we talked about it the more it seemed like the perfect end for her. They came into the world together and now they leave together.
