Game of Thrones is the name of the massively popular HBO TV show created after the Song of Fire and Ice book series. Written by George R.R. Marten, he has become an icon for fantasy novelists and the concept that no-one is safe. Known for its incredibly story, brutality and plot twisting events, this series gained massive popularity seemingly overnight after being adapted to a live-action platform. With stunning locations the show has been filmed in Northern Ireland, Croatia, Iceland, Morocco, Spain, Malta, Scotland, and the United States. Premiering on April 17, 2011, it has continued to gain fans for its five seasons, with at least two more planned. Set in the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, the game of thrones depicts several ruling families from the seven kingdoms and their back-stabbing, manipulative and brutal efforts to secure the iron throne for themselves. These families include members from House Lannister, Stark, Baratheon, Greyjoy, Targaryen, Tyrell, Tully, Bolton and more to come. Awards granted to this show include several Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Drama Series for its first four seasons, Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series in the category of Drama, Peabody Award, and a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation in both Long Form and Short Form.
Cersei Lannister, is a anti-fan favorite that we all love to hate. The Queen of Westeros, she is the widower of the late king Robert Baratheon and mother to the also late king Joffrey Baratheon and his sister Myrcella Baratheon. Her last remaining child Tommen Baratheon has taken the iron throne as his birthright, although he is a sorely ineffectual leader since the death of his grandfather Tywin Lannister, his acting Hand of the King. Since, she remains running the kingdom as the unseen force behind her young sons actions. As a character she is portrayed by the lovely Lena Headey. She has received multiple Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for the years of 2014 and 2015.
