'Game of Thrones' stars Lena Headey and Jerome Flynn had to be 'kept apart at all costs' during filming because of their bad split
Lena Headey and Jerome Flynn, who play Cersei Lannister and Bronn on the HBO show, reportedly dated for a while and things ended so badly between them that they refused to even work together in scenes
Cersei Lannister and Bronn haven't had the most amicable relationship on 'Game of Thrones' and it appears that it's just as bad, if not worse in real life. Lena Headey and Jerome Flynn, who play the two characters on the HBO show reportedly dated for a while and things ended so badly between them that they refused to even work together in scenes.
An insider reportedly said, "Lena and Jerome have not filmed together due to a bad break-up. They kept the full extent of it secret but it was a very turbulent relationship and it has been very awkward on set." The source also said that it seemed she actually hated the actor. "Lena opened up to her trusted friends. She appears to have genuine hate towards him," the source said.
The former couple met on the sets of not 'Game of Thrones', but 'Soldier Soldier', a British TV hit back in 1993. They are said to have been confirmed as a couple by Lena's aunt Anne Headey back in 2002. In 2003, Jerome also reportedly said, "We’re not a couple right now, people have seen us together and jumped to conclusions. I can't rule out a relationship with her."
Another 'Game of Thrones' crew member also alleged that the two did not want to even be in each other's presence. "Jerome and Lena aren't on speaking terms anymore and they are never in the same room at the same time," the insider explained to the Telegraph in 2014. "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," the source had added.
Headey's character Cersei appeared to have died in the last episode of 'Game of Thrones' while the fate of Flynn's Bronn is yet to be revealed. He was last seen having drinks with Tyrion and the gang before the North fought the Whitewalkers. He was sent there to find Cersei's two brothers, Jaime and Tyrion, and kill them. However, he betrays her and ends up joining their team for a price.
