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

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.

Who Died During The 'Game Of Thrones' Season 5 Finale?
Game of Thrones concluded its controversial fifth season Sunday night, and the Internet is ablaze with fans reacting to the multiple dramatic scenes that played out, which included multiple deaths. Don't go any further if you haven't watched last night's episode, dear reader. Here's who (probably) met their demise.

Stannis Baratheon

When you stop and think about it, what happened to self-appointed King Stannis Baratheon wasn't that surprising. The episode opened with half of Stannis' army abandoning him and his wife committing suicide by hanging. But that's what happens when you decide to...

'Game Of Thrones' Review: Burning Questions From The Season 5 Fi
Every season finale of Game of Thrones leaves us with an overabundance of questions that keep us awake at night until the next season finally premieres. “Mother’s Mercy” was no different. We had everything that makes for a good Game of Thrones finale: battles, introductions of interesting storylines, and shocking deaths. But there were also quite a bit head scratching moments, such as Sansa’s total lack of screen time, the whereabouts of the Tyrells, and why the Sand Snakes continue to exist.

Here are the biggest burning questions from “Mother’s Mercy:”

What’s Next for Sansa and Theon?

Prince Harry was caught flirting with "Doctor Who" star Jenna Coleman last weekend- and now there might be love in the air! the Prince was attending the Audi Polo Match on May 31, when The Sun caught him getting handsy with the "Doctor Who" actress.

According to a source for The Sun, Harry "took her by the hand and led her away from the crowd in the sponsor's tent. It was a very flirty, very tactile encounter. She was leaning into him and he had his hand on her knee. From their body language it looked like they were really enjoying each other's company."

Why Stannis is the World’s Worst Leader and Other Musings from “Dance with Dragons”

Stannis spent the last few weeks earning the hearts of the Game of Thrones viewers, only to destroy any lingering affection in a single moment. The show spent so much time building him up as somebody who would be a good leader, even if he is a bit on the boring side (or at least as his brother Renly believed.) He was endorsed by fallen hero, Ned Stark. He allies with the people of the North, including all the Starks. He actually cares about protecting The Wall. And he cares about basic grammar (or at least ...

Will Jon Snow Die On Game Of Thrones? Kit Harington Says No One
Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow on HBO's Game of Thrones, stopped by AOL Build on Monday in the aftermath of the show's crazy eighth episode of the season. "Hardhome" saw Jon Snow go to battle with the White Walkers, and was widely praised as one of the best episodes of Game of Thrones to date. Harington discussed this latest development on the show duirng his interview, but it's his words about the future that got people's attention.

Harington implied that viewers shouldn't count on Jon Snow or any other of the main characters on the series remaining safe, and said that the co...

Tyrion's Words Of Wisdom And Other 'GOT' Moments From Last Night

6/1/2015 9:33am EDT
Game of Thrones
Are we watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead? Because “Hardhome” had some striking similarities to the latter. The White Walkers and their zombie horde, despite being brilliant showcases of CGI, feel like their part of a different show. It’s a bit jarring to go from watching politic intrigue and our favorite characters being tortured to 30 minutes of battles with zombies, giants, and otherworldly creatures. The episodes buildup never felt like it was leading to an epic battle, awkwardly placed mid-season. It’s almost as if the writers felt like they needed to feature an intense battl...

'Game of Thrones' Review: Memorable Moments from 'The Gift'
An episode without Arya, very little Jon Snow, and an extra helping of Samwell Tarly’s gnarly sex scene? An episode where the Sand Snakes continue to be the worst written characters in the history of the television medium? What did we do to deserve this, Game of Thrones?

“The Gift” starts out slow, filling time with mind-numbingly slow stuff at The Wall, Dornish women showing their breasts for no reason other than boredom, and sex scenes that serve no narrative purpose. But at least the hanging threads in the major storylines are still interesting. Here are the most memorable moments from ...

Peter Dinklage
Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage has teamed up with Coldplay for a new song that will be featured Thursday night during NBC's charity benefit "Red Nose Day," which will raise money for children living in poverty.

Dinklage sings about the characters who were killed off in previous seasons, like Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon and their respective sons.

"Remember Ned Stark, he was a lot of fun, but he didn't make it past season one," Dinklage sings in the song, written by Coldplay for a Game of Thrones musical they produced for Thursday night's charity event, which airs at 8pm.

'Game Of Thrones' Outrage Continues: Senator Boycotts Show After
Senator Claire McCaskill is boycotting "Game of Thrones" after watching Sunday night's episode, which included a "disgusting and unacceptable" rape scene.

In the episode titled "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken," newlywed Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is assulted by her new husband Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) on their wedding night as the servant Reek, AKA Theon Greyjoy, watches.

In response to the incident, the Missouri senator tweeted: "Ok, I'm done Game of Thrones. Water Garden, stupid. Gratuitous rape scene disgusting and unacceptable. It was a rocky ride that just ended."

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has opened up about that scene from Sunday night's episode, saying that she "kinda loved it."

Spoiler Alert: The scene that Turner is referring to, of course, is the show's final scene, in which she and Ramsey Bolton (Iwan Rheon) have just been married and are about to consummate their marriage.

While social media and the internet have blown up and called it rape because Ramsey ripped off his new wife's dress and forced her to bend over so he could do his business -- while having his servant Reek, FKA Theon Greyjoy, watch.

Has 'Game Of Thrones' Obsession With Rape Gone Too Far?

Game of Thrones
Just when you thought the Game of Thrones character hadn’t dealt with enough horror, the show manages to pull out yet another horrific, unexpected scene. “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” constantly built up the tension from beginning to end. It starts with a relatively sleepy set of Arya scenes, filling the middle with rising stakes for every storyline, and then ends with the overwrought Sansa scene. Most of it was very well done, save for the consistently disappointing Sand Snakes, even if the direction of Sansa’s storyline is a continuation with the show’s obsession with rape.

It must be an unspoken rule in Game of Thrones that the Mother’s Day episode must always feature Daenerys playing mom to dragons, former slaves, and whoever else pops up. A couple of other mother related plots reared their heads in “Kill the Boy” to disturbing results. Brienne continues to honor her vow to the Stark mother, poor Walda Frey discovers she’s pregnant, Myranda reminds Sansa of her mom, and Roose Bolton tells his son the lovely story of the time he raped his mother.

Faith Militant VS Tommen

It’s almost thrilling to see every bad decision Cersei makes in her quest to destroy Queen Margaery’s life. This week she’s sunk to new lows and we couldn’t be happier. First she sends away Mace Tyrell to negotiate with the Iron Bank, leaving his seat on the council vacated and his children unprotected.

Next she reinstates the faith militant, essentially giving the Sparrows ultimate power over King’s Landing. They make quick work of their new power by clearing out all the brothels (...

The best thing this season of Game of Thrones has done is converge some of the many characters into single storylines. With a great many characters spread all across the many lands, there’s a danger of losing focus and having too much going on. That’s always been one of the major downfalls of the show, having too much going on and not enough time to fully focus on the characters that really matter.

But this season has put characters that were adrift on a path that will see them come together. The possibilities of the future storylines with characters that normally wouldn’t interact are one...

In fact, she's become so popular behind the scenes that producers wrote a scene for her, according to Yahoo UK.

“The House of Black and White” is an even stronger episode than the first, proving the season is definitely on track to be more than shoehorned scenes to meet quotas and dragging storylines. Every piece felt like it was progressing the story inside on continuing old threads from the seasons before. There are still some massive missteps, such as overestimating how long we’ll stomach Tyrion’s self-pity and our interest in Grey Worm, but overall it was a great episode of new beginnings and endings.

Game of Thrones returns for its season 5 premere Sunday night. Many of the show's characters are well-known for their sharp wit and colorful dialogue, but there are few characters as beloved for their sense of humor as Tyrion Lannister. Actor Peter Dinklage has won an Emmy and numerous other awards for his role as the little Lannister, and it's easy to see why. When the "Half-Man" isn't getting up to no good in a brothel, he's using his great intellect to take down men twice his size.

But on the other hand, there’s always a high likelihood that the characters we’ve grown to love will be demeaned, tortured, and murdered in front of our very eyes, just like every other season.

However, there’s something very different about this season. The showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have been more open than ever about diverging from the source material and surpa...

'Game Of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Watches The Show With Her
"Game of Thrones" is perhaps the least family-friendly show on television. Gather the whole family around -- parents, grandparents, young children -- and be revolted as writhing nude sex fiends are hacked apart with a broadsword.

But for Maisie Williams -- who stars in "Game of Thrones" as Arya Stark -- watching the show has to be a family affair.

As she explained to Jimmy Kimmel on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "We used to watch it with my nan, and my auntie, and my cousins, and my dogs, and the whole family, everyone."

That can get a bit awkward. Especially with Williams' 87-year-old grandma w...

The event was held at the Tower of London, and stars Sophie Turner, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kit Harington and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau were among the nearly two dozen stars who showed up.
