'You Win Or You Die': Cersei Lannister Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'

3/21/2016 10:04pm EDT
The 20 Best Cersei Lannister Quotes From 'Game Of Thrones'
"I will do things for my family you couldn't imagine..." With that one line, actress Lena Headey cuts to the core of what makes Cersei Lannister tick.

The one-time Queen turned Queen Mother of Westeros has maintained a reputation for being angry and ruthless throughout all five seasons of HBO's award-winning drama 'Game of Thrones'. That said, you can't say she hasn't always had a method behind her madness. Cersei can be cold, calculating, manipulative... but it's always in service of what she thinks is best for her children and the Lannister house.

With plenty of 'GoT' fans getting rea...

'Game Of Thrones' Season 6 Chock-Full Of Sex, Twists Like You Won't Believe

'Game Of Thrones' Is Back With Season Six Trailer: Is Jon Snow R
Ready, set, go -- Game of Thrones is back on HBO, and Season 6 is set to air soon! If you allow us to put in our tuppence; all the usual theatrics are back in the new trailer: sex, violence, betrayal -- all what you'd expect in a fantasy drama with elements of alternate histories.

And then, there's a twist of sorts: According to Gizmodo, Kit Harrington's character, Jon Snow, is still somewhat obscure about his role for the sixth season; he is still dropping cryptic hints about his fate in Thrones. However, the writing's on the wall, so to speak.

Spoiler Alert: but not really, sort of --...

HBO Trailer For 2016 Gives New Glimpse Of Daenerys, 'Game Of Thr
We're still months away from 'Game of Thrones' making its return to HBO for Season 6, but the premiere is close enough now for the cable channel to start teasing us with some quick glimpses of what's to come. Last week, we got a short clip with new character the Three-Eyed Raven providing the monologue over pivotal scenes from previous episodes. Now, HBO has released its trailer for 2016 and it includes a much-too-quick glimpse of the Mother of Dragons and two other key characters from the show.

HBO uploaded the clip to Twitter Sunday night, and if past years are any indication, the traile...

The 2015 Emmy nominations will be announced Thursday, July 16. In the next few days, we will be offering our predictions and wish lists for the major categories.

The Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Drama Series fields have been expanded from six to seven shows.

Lena Headey On Cersei's Walk Of Atonement In 'Game Of Thrones'

6/16/2015 9:56am EDT
Lena Headey's Reaction To The Humiliating Penance Walk On 'Game
Many shocking events occurred during the season five finale of "Game Of Thrones" on Sunday night, including Cersei's walk of atonement, which saw actress Lena Headey walking naked while angry peasants threw food and body fluids at her and a religious zealot kept proclaiming "Shame" over and over again beside her.

Headey opened up about filming the slut-shaming scene, brought on after Cersei confesses that she had an affair. The character is stripped naked, and her hair is shorn, leaving bloody cuts on her scalp. Then she is forced to walk the distance from her prison to her home.

Lena Headey's had accusations of "baby bump" thrown at her in the last few days, and she's finally coming out with the truth.

She's pregnant!

So first, congratulations to the "Game of Thrones" star and her baby-to-be. At 41, this will be Headey's second child- the first, her son Wylie, is just shy of five years old.

And second, let's all stop hounding Headey about the tiny Lannister growing inside her.

When Headey confirmed the news to People, she did so with a pretty specific caveat in mind:

Check Out '300: Rise of an Empire' On DVD, Blu-ray & More June 24

6/22/2014 6:18am EDT
300 Rise of an Empire
During its theatrical release in January, Starpulse called "300: Rise of an Empire" visually "striking" with awe-inspiring special effects.

The film centers on Greek general Themistocles (Sullivan Stapleton), who attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemisia (Eva Green), vengeful commander of the Persian navy.

Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones") also stars.

Game of Thrones star Lena Headey guested on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night to discuss Sunday's season four finale.

After revealing that because of all the shocking deaths on the show occasionally creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss will sneak a fake page of dialog into the script just to mess with them and keep them on their toes, "which is really unfair," Headey says.

The actress wore a sleeveless t-shirt with a grey heart outline and the words "I'm not sorry" written on it, a direct reference to an image she tweeted days before the finale, trolling fans and teasing that a highly antici...

The "Game Of Thrones" season four premiere took place in New York City on Tuesday night, and the majority of the cast showed up to promote the upcoming season.

There is apparently no real-life bad blood between Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, and Jack Gleeson, who plays her former bethrothed Joffrey Lannister, on the HBO fantasy drama. Despite their on-screen friction, the pair posed together and smiled for the cameras.

Sansa's GOT husband Tyrion Lannister, Peter Dinklage, attended the event with his wife. Lena Heady, Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams and other cast members also made a...

Fashion Fails: Meryl Streep, Rachel Wilde, Juliette Lewis, More

It's Fashion Fail Time! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: the fails!

As awards season heats up, so do the chances of people failing spectacularly on the red carpet. We Love Meryl Streep, but we hate the black, shapeless gown she wore to the SAG Awards.

Rachel Wilde must have known that having a waist-high split in the middle of her gown would lead to shots like this. Even if that was fixed, we're not fans of the color or the too-big sleeves.

It seems Juliette Lewis is rubbing it in that it'...

The first full-length trailer for season four of Game of Thrones has finally arrived, revealing new characters, battles, betrayals, struggles and... that there's still three months we have to wait for the April 6 premiere.

Producers packed a ton of stuff into the 1:45 trailer, which debuted Sunday night on HBO and picks up where the events of last season left off.

An aerial view of King's Landing dominates the opening shot of the preview as a dragon's shadow flies over the city. The city is very clean and peaceful looking, leading us to believe this is part of a dream sequence.

A very daring cut for Claire Danes at The Emmys, but her light skin and the color of her dress offers no contrast and looks very plain. Plus, it has that lacy doily look.

Forget The Hunger Games when it comes to government sanctioned murder -- this weekend's The Purge is set to eradicate an overpopulated 2022 America by offering citizens 12 hours of guilt-free criminal activity, no strings attached.

Anything goes in the horror flick, written and directed by James DeMonaco -- including the reviews, most of which aren't that great.

Critics are calling it a run-of-the-mill home invasion movie, poorly shot and lacking anything new for the horror genre. But the film is expected to top the box office this weekend, because horror fans always show up to the latest...

Headey filed a response to his claim, revealing she has asked for a $6,000 advance on the tax return to cover her living expenses because her current financial situation is so dire.

Slideshow: The Beautiful Women Of 'Game Of Thrones'

The third season of Game of Thrones is less than a week away (we've seen the first four episodes already and they are awesome!) and what better way to celebrate than with a slideshow of the beautiful women of Westeros (and Essos)?

The show's two most powerful women, Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister, played by Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey, respectively, are both blondes, but in reality sport dark 'dos. They may be hot on TV, but we think they're even sexier off screen. In fact, they all clean up well.

"Homeland" winner Claire Danes, who is several months pregnant, also opted for a strapless yellow dress that was (obviously) more loose fitting than Julie's.

"Game Change" winner Julianne Moore picked a more conservative yellow gown with long sleeves, a higher neckline and a billowing skirt.

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Season 2, Episode 5 - 'The Ghost Of Harrenhal'

Game of Thrones
If there’s one thing “Game of Thrones” doesn’t do, is waste time. Last week’s episode closed with shots of sorceress Melisandre birthing some monstrous shadow, a wispy, manlike demon summoned for some mysterious bidding. This week’s episode, “The Ghost of Harrenhaal,” opened rather routinely: Catelyn and Renly were chatting about kingly things while Brienne helped Renly remove his armor. And then, with a fellow swoop, the shadow demon entered, stabbed Renly, and fled. All in the first five minutes.

The abruptness of the deed was cold, indeed. Brienne cried out in horror at the loss of her ...

If last night's episode of "Game of Thrones" doesn't get people talking, I don't know what will.

I'm sure dedicated book fans were expecting those final shots, when sorceress Melisandre gave birth to… a shadow baby? As a non-book reader, I'm murky on the details. But I do know that I finished this episode with an audible exhale of breath. Not only was it the most outwardly fantastical scene of the show so far (with the exception, perhaps, of Dany's dragons), but it was wrought with tension. I was expecting the birth of an illegitimate Stannis baby, after their steamy sex scene last week. W...

"Game of Thrones" is nothing if not expansive (understatement of the century). Characters who get the silent treatment for long drags of time have a tendency to crop up as soon as they’re forgotten. That reinsertion takes centerfold in this week’s installment, with Renly Baratheon’s quest for glory as the overarching storyline. 

Like his brothers, Robert and Stannis, Renly is a noble man, a little too proud and a little too stubborn to assume the leadership role he so rightfully seeks. With bastard child Joffrey at reign, Westeros is in the thick of an ugly war, new enemies and allegiances...
