Did Lena Headey just reveal Cersei's fate?

Game of Thrones makes no promises that your favourite character will survive the next episode, let alone a whole season.

That's why Lena Headey's latest comments to Time magazine have sent fans into speculation overdrive.

The 43-year-old actress was talking to the publication about a time when co-star Peter Dinklage contacted her after reading the latest script.

"Pete Dinklage sent me a text that said 'Oh my God, have you read them,' and I hadn't. I'd just had my second baby so I was a bit crazy and full of milk," she said. "He just said 'Holy s**t,' and I was like 'What the f**k?!'"

Errm, is anyone else getting tingly with excitement right now or is that just us?

Go on Lena...

"He went, 'Oh my God, I'm not telling you,' so I assumed oh, I'm going to die," she said. "And then, I went straight to the end. I was really in shock. I think obviously, now, there's got to be some body count at the end of season 8."

Woah, wait a minute.

Did Lena just accidentally confirm evil Queen Cersei lives until the end of season 8?

It's certainly what some super fans are thinking.

Just to put it into perspective, season 7 only started globally two weeks ago and we already know it's the penulitimate season - GAH!

So to let slip that her character, that she's played since the show began, may last until the end could be the biggest spoiler EVER!

Of course, we have no way of verifying if this is true.

Some people have been quick to point out that it may have been a slip of the tounge while others have suggested she's possibly just messing with our minds. She is Queen Cersei after all!

Overall fans aren't expecting Cersei to last long on the throne after the prophecy about her three children dying came true.

However, it is possible that she's the strongest, fiercest (and frankly the scariest) Lannister around and she's going to outlast them all on the Iron Throne.

Either way, we've all watched her character fall further from grace with every season and now she's finally perched in that iconic chair, we don't think she'll be giving it up too easily.
