Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey, who plays Cersei in the hit HBO fantasy television series, has given fans an insight into what to expect from her character in the upcoming second season. Lena claims that Cersei is starting to feel guilt for the way she has turned her son Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) into a monster.
Headey explained to Entertainment Weekly, "You get a real glimpse into her guilt as a mother and her fear of what she's created. She's just starting to slightly crumble and feel the reality of her world. There's a lot of drinking... also massive denial about her son's behaviour.”
She then went on to reveal how Cersei turns to Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) for support, adding, "There's a moment where she absolutely shows Tyrion her true self. He becomes like a sort of confidante - almost - because she has nobody else."
You can catch Lena Headey, Jack Gleeson and Peter Dinklage all reprising their respective roles in Game of Thrones season two, which is set to premiere on HBO on April 1 before then hitting the UK television screens a day later, premiering on Sky Atlantic on April 2.
