For all those of you who have watched and love Game of Thrones (and I know for a fact there are a lot of you out there), this will be interesting.
Lena Headey (Cersei) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) are in absolutely non scenes together in the series.
“And why is that?” you may ask. Well, it’s because they’re exes. Exes who literally cannot stand each other’s. Their relationship ended so badly that their contracts have clauses that doesn’t allow them to be in the same room at the same time.
It seems that the drama isn’t only in the series.
One of the more obvious examples for the above-mentioned clauses in the show can be seen in the season 7 finale.
Spoilers for season 7’s finale ahead! You have been warned folks.
During the last episode, when Jon, Cersei and Daenerys were about to begin their discussion about a possible truce in the war against the White Walkers, Bronn and Podrick left the Dragonpit so as to “let the fancy folk talk”. This was an odd decision, considering Bronn’s position in King’s Landing. Of course, not to mention that good-ol’ Bronn would never miss such a spectacle as seeing a Wight scare the life out of the queen.
One can only imagine the resentment between the two if the creators of Game of Thrones have to work around their scripts, change up shooting times all because they have to “keep them apart at all costs” as a crew member from the show explained in an interview.
Headey and Flynn were first thought to have begun dating around 2003 and ten years later they couldn’t stand being in sight of one another.
It’s truly a shame (pun intended) to see such talented actors harboring such negative feelings toward each other. Hopefully they’ll patch things up at some point in the future. For now, however, we’ll keep seeing them only in separate scenes.
