Since the finale of the series Game of Thrones in May, many fans of the series have felt that there are a handful of storylines that we would have liked to see differently. And, according to some recent comments by Lena Headey it sounds as if at least one Cersei plot had changed if the authors had not decided to wipe out a particular scene from Season Seven. The actress, who played Cersei Lannister for the HBO drama, appeared at a comic convention in Germany, where she revealed that in the penultimate season of the series was almost a scene in which her character had a miscarriage.
"We shot a scene that never made it to season seven, where I lost the baby," she said. "And it was a really traumatic, big moment for Cersei, and he never did."
If you can remember, Cersei becomes pregnant during the seventh season with her twin brother's child, though she later assembles with Euron Greyjoy and Cersei telling him that he is the father. But her pregnancy became a big topic of conversation for the fans. While some people wondered what would happen when Euron found out that the child was not really his heir, others wondered if it was ever really pregnant. Despite the confusion of the fans, this part of the story was never fully explored before Cersei's death, though it's still worth asking if a scene where Cersei lost her baby could have changed her trajectory over the past season. Headey seems to believe that.
"I loved doing that because I thought it would have been different," she said. Of course, we're not sure why the creators of the series scrapped the scene, but we can not say it's not interesting to at least think about how that moment has changed things.
