A majority of Game of Thrones fans were disappointed with how the show ended, specifically how Cersei's character went down on the show. Following the finale, Lena Headey herself confessed in a show that Cersei's deserved a better ending. It was a sensational revelation in the 7th season that Cersei was pregnant with Jaime's child. Recently in a conversation at an event,  Lena Headey disclosed that Cersei was supposed to be losing the baby in Season 7, which was filmed but failed to make it to the final cut. She even added that it was very traumatic for her during the filming process.

That being said, Cersei's abortion would have made a drastic difference in her character arc. She even stated that the pregnancy was a major plot in Season 7, but it served no purpose except to manipulate Euron Greyjoy as Cersei told him that the baby was his.

Fans from all over the world went on social media stating that a villain like her truly earned a better death than the easy end which did not do justice to her character's stature. Even in an interview with a leading British daily, Lena Headey was asked what will she say to showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss. For the same, she replied with, " I will say I wanted a better death."

Earlier when Season 8 began premiering, it was announced by HBO that there's a prequel of GOT in the making, that will take place thousands of years before Game of Thrones story we know.
