Watch: Lena Headey Speak ‘Game of Thrones’ Style on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister on ‘Game of Thrones,’ stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to have an insult-off with the host, “Game of Thrones” style.

Cersei—once Queen of the Seven Kingdoms—is also a queen of cruel insults on the HBO fantasy drama, so Kimmel thought it would be fun to talk like the characters, all while sipping from goblets of wine of course.

“You’re so good on the show. Is it a challenge to play Cersei or do you just naturally suck the life out of every room you enter?” asked Kimmel.

And in true Cersei form, Headey responded, “You have such a way with words. I wonder if you’ll be as clever when I have your tongue ripped from your throat.”

Kimmel retreated dubbing Headey as the master.

“Game of Thrones'” season four finale aired Sunday and received 7.1 million viewers.
