Game of Thrones fans have been looking forward to season eight, which will be the show’s last for a very long time.
The show will answer the many questions fans have, and certain fans have been coming up with their own theories on what could happen.
However, Cersei Lannister star, Lena Headey has revealed that the final season will be full of surprises and even hinted her character would survive.
She continued: “It’s part of the success, you know, being consumed with it and what’s happening.
“I think it’s just frustrating when you do interviews for Thrones and actually can’t say anything.”
Headey went on to reveal that she accidentally let some spoilers for the upcoming season slip to some of her friends and family.
“I’ve drunkenly done it to someone and then the next day, hunted them down and made them sign in blood not to say anything,” she said.
The actress also opened up on what it was like every year before getting to read the script and wondering whether and how her character might die in the upcoming season.
“Yeah, I think I had many fantasies about how Cersei would — if she were to — die,” she said.
“But I think it was, every year, anyone’s lying if they say they didn’t kind of rush to the end of each script and go, “Oh, PHEW!”
Headey went on to reveal this season will undoubtedly surprise one of two fans.
“I think people will be surprised at every turn this season,” she said.
There have been many fans suggesting that Cersei will end up being killed off in the final season.
This theory comes after HBO revealed character images of all the main characters from the upcoming season.
Some fans thought that the fact she was looking in the opposite direction to the other characters suggests she could end up being killed in the final season.
Meanwhile, it’s been revealed that Cersei killed off an unexpected character off-screen.
According to showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, Cersei has King Tommen Baratheon’s (Dean-Charles Chapman) adorable cat, Ser Pounce killed.
The pair told Entertainment Weekly: “Cersei hated the name ‘Ser Pounce’ so much she could not allow him to survive.”
Game of Thrones season 8 will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic on April 14. Seasons 1-7 are currently streaming on NOW TV.
