Warning: This Post Is Dark And Full Of Spoilers…
Ever wondered how weird it is that Queen Cersei and Ser Bronn have literally never interacted?
He has been the right-hand man for both her brothers, however their paths have seemingly never crossed.
In the most recent episode, we see Bronn sneak off for a crafty pint with Podrick seconds before Cersei arrives, even though there is about to be a very important meeting which they really should both be attending.
I mean, we can all relate, but this was quite the life or death situation sort of meeting…
Basically, actors Lena Headley (Cersei) and Jerome Flynn (Bronn) actually used to be an item, but things really didn’t end well.
They are now no longer on speaking terms and can’t even stand to be in the same room together. According to some reports, being kept separate is even a binding part of their contracts.
Back in 2014, an unnamed member of the show’s crew made the following comment to The Telegraph:
Jerome and Lena aren’t on speaking terms any more 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.
Jerome Flynn (Bronn) and Lena Headey (Cersei) dated & it ended on such bad terms that their contracts state they cant share a scene together pic.twitter.com/hZnVfcIPbv

lmao, the reason Bronn & Pod "went to drink" is cause The actors who play Cersei and Bronn had a nasty break up & can't stand each other IRL

It must be a nightmare working alongside your ex, especially if things ended badly. It makes you wonder about the scenes we would have had if these two excellent actors were able to work alongside each other.
After all, you would think scenes between Cersei and Bronn would be pretty interesting, and of course important when you consider Bronn’s loyalty to Cersei’s brother/lover Jaime.

Break ups are terrible, but they do say time heals all wounds (see Arya’s gut wound).
Will Lena and Jerome be able to patch things up enough to give us just one memorable meeting in the next and final season?
