"Cersei doesn’t care about her hair when she’s not in court. It’s only when she’s in front of the public that there’s a major dress done. When you see her walking around, it’s just flowy. She only dresses her hair when she faces the public."
Actresses that I absolutely adore - I hate being looked at. Can’t stand it. I know, I know - I picked the wrong career. I should have been a doctor. If you play certain parts you have this nice face painted on you, and then you have feel as if you have a responsibility to this idea of being beautiful. I hate that about our business. It shouldn’t inform what you do. But there’s a perceived inverse relation between looks and talent.
*SPOILERS AHEAD*As for how she expects the Penance Walk will be handled, Headey said she thinks it will be staged in typically “raw” fashion.
“I think, you know, it’s interesting, that part for me. I’ve been very adamant about keeping her kind of clothed because I think that’s part of her power. And she can still be sort of sexual and weird and female, but she doesn’t have to be naked. And I think it makes for a more shocking disempowering moment when this happens. So, we’ll see. I’m a little scared.”
