How About Angelina Jolie as Cersei Lannister?
Let’s start by saying that it’s difficult to imagine anyone ever filling Lena Headey’s shoes with the role of Cersei Lannister. However, I think that Angelina Jolie would absolutely fit the bill. In fact, Angie has a look that possesses the intensity, the attitude and the intimidation factor necessary to portray the role. There aren’t many people who are able to go from a sweet, caring mother to be a total badass in a matter of seconds.
If you were left disappointed by Cersei Lannister’s anticlimactic death, you aren’t alone. Actress Lena Headey said that she wished her character had gone out in a different way too. For almost eight whole seasons, after playing such a major role, people almost start wondering which ways and how the character will die. However, no one expected that.
