This is the real-life reason why Cersei and Bronn never share a scene together in Game of Thrones
On a show as dramatic as Game of Thrones, we never thought we'd see anything offscreen that could rival the onscreen theatrics.
When Bronn told Podrick they would grab a drink and leave the action in the Dragon Pit, it seemed rushed and definitely confusing. It turns out, it was one of the rare occasions on the show where a piece of dialogue wasn't a plot device, but instead reflective of some serious behind the scenes drama, namely that actors Lena Headey and Jerome Flynn aren't on speaking terms.
Headey, who plays super villain Cersei Lannister and Flynn, who plays Bronn, dated in real life and things didn't end well - to the point where they refuse to be in the same room together. The couple dated back in 2002 and a set insider revealed in 2014 that they are to "be kept apart at all costs", without detailing exactly what happened between the two/.
"Jerome and Lena aren’t on speaking terms any more and they are never in the same room at the same time. It’s a pity because they appeared to have patched things up for a while, but now the word is they should be kept apart at all costs," a crew member told the Telegraph.
In 2003, Flynn confirmed they previously dated, saying: "We’re not a couple right now, people have seen us together and jumped to conclusions. I can’t rule out a relationship with her in the future, I just don’t know."
