Lena Headey is more artistic, liberal, funny, and kind.
It may be hard to remember all the way back to when Cersei had hair, but she was hot.
Even the biggest Cersei hater had to feel a little bit bad for her in that moment.
Eventually, the city decided to allow the showrunners to shoot their racy scene, so long as Headey was not filmed nude inside a place of worship.
On Game of Thrones, Cersei Lannister has never been a fan favorite.
Cersei isn't a nice person—lest we forget the past four seasons of diabolical behavior—but it's hard not to feel a little sympathetic for the manipulative matriarch.
Also, I have to note that Emilia Clarke also played the role of Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys.
