On Lena Heady’s stunning performance as Queen Cersei in the finale, Nutter said:
“Lena’s performance in the walk of shame sequence obviously, but also the way it was visually handled, the profound production value, and the intimate, powerful, dramatic storytelling of how Cersei’s journey was told.”
“Cersei’s story is quite a rich one, and you have here a chance to see another side of her that you may have never expected you’d see before that. It is one that’s quite sympathetic, which is quite powerful. I think that’s going to be a tremendous surprise to people, and also too it’ll be a powerful reminder of who Cersei really is and her attitude of who she is and what she’s all about at the end of that sequence.”
