Whether she’s emerging unscathed from a burning pyre or flying her dragon to a war summit, Daenerys Targaryen is big on grand entrances.
What kept her sympathetic was her children; say what you will about Cersei Lannister’s scheming ways, the lady loves her children.
The track is about being king for the day, although the somewhat freakish video sees her “revive” Richard III (Socha) with a ritual involving cookies and candles, then go on a boozy date with him.
“You’ll never Wednesday the prince”. Why do Cersei and Bronn never appear together in the same scene?
I think she’s immediately envious because Daenerys is more lovely and younger than she is and the prophecy says somebody younger and more attractive will take her place so I’m sure that’s at the forefront of her mind.
Headey plays Cersei Lannister in the popular series, while Flynn plays Bronn, the bodyguard of her on-screen brother Tyrion Lannister, who is played by Peter Dinklage. He might have bragged to Cersei that, as Hand of the Queen, he keeps Dany’s wilder impulses in check, but we haven’t actually seen that happen in quite some time. Then comes another – younger, more attractive – to cast you down and take all that you hold dear …
As for the Cersei lying to her new “allies”, Headey knows exactly what the fans are thinking, now that we know that Cersei had no intention of helping despite the consequences. I think he has a very special relationship with Dany and he really believes in her as a true leader and has invested a lot in her. “She’s such a bitch”.
In addition to being a music video muse, we can also look for Headey in the 2018 comedy Fighting with My Family, written and directed by Stephen Merchant, and also starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Vince Vaughn and Hannah Rae.
“King for a Day”. However, Cersei’s prophecy has played out just as promised, so the future she’s looking forward to with her unborn child isn’t likely to end well – and Daenerys is a reminder of that fact.
