Recent events in “Game of Thrones” Season 5 have led to some uncertainty about the future of some of the characters. In separate interviews posted Sunday, Iain Glen spoke about the future of Jorah and Lena Headey spoke about how Cersei Lannister feels about some of the other characters on the HBO show. [Spoiler Alert!]
Episode 5 showed how Jorah had contracted the highly infectious greyscale disease. Glen spoke to EntertainmentWeekly about what it means for the future of Jorah. The actor said that when he found out about what’s going to happen, his first reaction was, “Uh-oh, here comes trouble.” However, the actor was quick to point out that this may not be the end of the character.
Glen explained that while some people in the fantasy world of Westeros have died from greyscale, others have been saved from the dreaded disease, so Jorah’s future may not be doomed. The show creators are apparently “playing their cards very close to their vest” and have not revealed the future of the character to the actor. However, the actor points out that the disease is a “slow burn,” and this gives the character plenty of time to find a way to stop the spread.
Another major character, currently going through a bit of turmoil at Kings Landing, is Cersei Lannister. Headey, who plays the character in “Game of Thrones” Season 5, spoke to AccessHollywood about Cersei Lannister and her relationship with some of the other characters on the show.
Cersei Lannister emerged as the real power behind the throne after the death of her father. One person who has not accepted her new role is her uncle Kevan. Headey believes that Cersei considers her uncle to be a “weed” and doesn’t respect him much. She also added that her character considers Kevan to be an “irritating mosquito.”
Another character that “irritates” Cersei is Queen Margaery. The young ruler had gotten close to Joffery and is now wedded to Tommen, whom she is currently trying to manipulate. Headey pointed out that apart from getting close to Cersei’s sons, Margaery is also younger.
A major factor that the actress considers to be the root behind the tension between Cersei and Margaery in “Game of Thrones” Season 5 is that the young queen has the support and guidance of her grandmother, Olenna Tyrell. "Olenna kind of breathes life into Margaery, whereas Tywin would suffocate it from [Cersei], so I think there's envy in that relationship," Headey said. The two characters are set to face off in the future episodes because of the arrest of Loras by the Faith Militants.
