No one can stop talking about HBO's "Game of Thrones," not even the cast. Bloody, grotesque, brutal, savage, gruesome: These are all ways the so-called “Red Wedding” episode could be described. Many members of the cast have jumped in to give their own reactions to “Rains of Castamere,” often as shocked as the fans, but Lena Headey found it to be “beautiful.”
For those who haven’t seen the episode that aired Sunday, now is the time to stop reading if you don’t want it to be spoiled.
When celebrity new site TMZ sought her opinion of the bloody scene that ended with the death of three main characters, Headey replied, “"I think it was a beautiful episode. All good."
Headey, 39, plays Queen Cersei on the show and was one of the characters who made it through the throat-cutting scene. King of the North Robb Stark wasn’t as lucky. He and his pregnant wife Talisa with both murdered, along with the matriarch of the Stark family, Catelyn.
Actress Michelle Fairley, who played Catelyn, said on live online chat with HBO.com how emotional it was for her to say goodbye to the cast when they were done filming the scene. "After the week of filming that whole sequence, when we wrapped on set and said goodbye to the crew it was very emotional, but I think all of [us] felt this huge achievement and relief in a way almost," she explained. "From my point of view and Richard's there was incredible sadness because it was a combination of three years of work."
On Monday Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on the hit series, had a quirkier reponse. The 15-year-old posted a video to her Vine account where she talked about the death of her television mother and brother. "They dead. Like SO dead," she said with a fake Southern accent. "Like OMG dead. My mother and brother are dead."
The finale of this season's “Game of Thrones” will air on HBO Sunday at 9/8c.
