There’s no love lost between the warring families of Westeros in Game of Thrones, but did you know that, for some members of the HBO show’s cast, those feelings of animosity may extend beyond the fictional world of tits and dragons.
In fact, some reports suggest two members of the Game of Thrones cast have fallen out so badly, they no longer share any screen time – something the season seven finale backed up.
The pair involved may surprise you too – Lena Headey, who played Cersei Lannister, and Jerome Flynn’s Bronn.
Their personal issues apparently relate to a shared history that dates back to the start of the show. According to a report from The Telegraph from back in 2014, Headey and Flynn actually dated each other for a time.
But it did not end well and pretty much everyone involved in the show knows it.
“Jerome and Lena aren’t on speaking terms anymore and they are never in the same room at the same time,” a source told the newspaper
“It’s a pity because they appeared to have patched things up for a while, but now the word is they should be kept apart at all costs.”
Will the pair patch things up ahead of the eighth and final season of the show, when they will be forced to unite against the armies of the undead arriving from beyond the wall?
It seems likely. At least there is plenty of time for them to do just that – the final series isn’t expected to air until 2019.
