I know that we're all a bit gutted now that Game of Thrones has come to an end. We waited for this season for about 20 years and then it came and went quicker than your ex. We're not happy.

Anyway, it turns out the drama on the show isn't exclusively just on-screen. In fact, there's some real sh*t going down between the actors.

Queen Cersei and Ser Bronn have literally never met each other during the show. Which seems weird, right? Surely they would have bumped into each other at some point.


Well apparently there's a pretty interesting reason why. And no, it's not anything to do with the story-line. In fact, it's everything to do with the cast. Jerome Flynn (Ser Bronn) and Lena Headey (Cersei) actually used to be in a relationship.

In the last episode, we saw Bronn grab Podrick 'to go for a drink' before Cersei shows up. This flagged something up in my brain when I watched it. Like when you play a game and there's a patch of wall that looks slightly different. You know there's something behind it.

During this scene, I kept thinking that they were all going to be slaughtered and this was Bronn's way of saving his mate.


However, it might all be a lot more simple than that.

A source told the Telegraph back in 2014: "Jerome and Lena aren't on speaking terms any more and they are never in the same room at the same time. 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."

Lena, we feel you. I can't imagine anything worse than working with my ex. I'd definitely make sure we were kept apart too.

Luckily, most of the cast actually do get on. Take Emelia Clarke for example...
