Lena Headey did not feel so good about the infamous rape scene in Game of Thrones

Lena Headey might have been left with lixed feelings after the famous rape scene was shot with costar Nikolaj Coster. The last week’s episode of the Game of Thrones has been the centre of debate since the episode aired and the ‘rape’ scene has been criticized a lot; the Jamie and Cersei scene has by far been the most jaw-dropping scene in the entire season. Pretty sure everyone was not even so surprised and left with mixed feelings after Joffrey was murdered. We might think of the scene as being literally disgusting. As if the disgust of watching a brother and sister engage in the act of sex wasn’t enough, they were made to do it right next to the corpse of their own son Joffrey.

As much as it was awkward and difficult for us to watch, it was equally disturbing for the actors to carry out the entire scene. Lena Headey had no other option but to get stuck up with this scene which has now become the most infamous of all. While speaking to E! News, Natalie Dormer, who plays Margery Tyrell, Joffrey's recent widow, revealed how Lena Headey was feeling about filming the entire scene. She said "I remember talking to her in the makeup trailer the day before she had to shoot that, she had mixed feelings about it for obvious reasons. But as an actor, those scenes are the ones you really get to sink your teeth into, so there's sort of a perverse enjoyment in exploring those really dramatic moments as well."

Miss Dormer was most certainly right to make use of the word ‘perverse’ since it perfectly fits here. Soon after the episode aired, fans of the show were left outraged with the indecency and lack of shame displayed in the rape scene. What were the directors even thinking? That having a sex scene right next to a corpse wouldn’t bring about any negative reaction? Well, that was certainly not the case.
