With the drama of Game of Thrones season 8 finally coming to a close on Sunday, May 19th, real-life drama between the castmates has emerged!

A romance between Lena Headey (Cersei) and another leading character has taken fans by surprise, particularly with reports that it ended very sourly.

So who did Lena Headey date?

Read on to find out everything you need to know about this TV romance which quickly turned into an on-set feud plus more on-set romances from the Game of Thrones universe!

Who did Lena Headey date on Game of Thrones?

It was none other than lothario Bronn of the Blackwater! Well, Jerome Flynn if we’re thinking about this in real-life…

The pair reportedly started up a romance on the set of the 1993 TV drama Soldier, Soldier, over a decade and a half before Game of Thrones had started.

But in 2014 things took a turn for the worse and the couple ended their relationship.

A show source recently told The Sun, “Lena and Jerome have not filmed together because of a bad breakup”. But in fact, it was confirmed way back in 2014 by The Telegraph that “Jerome and Lena aren’t on speaking terms any more and they are never in the same room at the same time”.

Who is Lena Headey with now?

She is currently married to British director Dan Cadan.

The two tied the knot in 2018 and have one child together called Teddy. Lena had another child called Wylie from a previous marriage which ended in 2007.

Other Game of Thrones couples!

This is not the first instance of there being on-set romance for the Game of Thrones’ cast, as famously two romantics leads took their romance off-screen.

Onscreen lovers Jon Snow and Ygritte – who uttered the iconic phrase “You know nothing Jon Snow” – parted ways tragically when she was killed, but that didn’t stop this couple from continuing their romance.

They even got married on June 23rd, 2018!
