The Crazy Reason 'Game Of Thrones' Cersei and Bronn Are Never in a Scene Together

And it has nothing to do with their storylines and everything to do with their personal lives.

Who wants to hear some Game Of Thrones-based gossip…

Well, exactly—everybody. And this little snippet of gossip is worth a bag of gold pieces, if you ask me.

So you know how in the season 7 finale it was a bit weird how Bronn—played by Robson and Jerome's Jerome Flynn—took Brienne of Tarth's right hand man Pod away for a drink when there was a fairly good chance a massive fight was going to kick off between everyone?

Yeah, it would have been quite good to have Pod and Bronn—who's always there to lend Jaime a hand when he gets into a sticky situation—there to help out, right?

Well, it turns out Bronn had to get the hell out of there before Cersei Lannister turned up because Jerome and Lena Headey used to go out together, and the whole thing ended very badly.

According to the internet, there has only actually ever been one scene where they were onscreen together (don't ask me when, for I am only human...). And GOT producers were lucky to even get that to happen because it's actually stated in their contracts that they are not to star alongside each other.

A source told the Telegraph, "Jerome and Lena aren't on speaking terms anymore 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."

Incredible that you can be the biggest badasses in Westeros, but an ex is still an ex at the end of the day…
