Earlier this month, HBO finally announced that the highly-anticipated Season 6 of Game of Thrones will debut on Sunday, April 24, as the countdown continues towards this debut. The season premiere is a tad bit later than the last few seasons, which have either debuted in late March or early April, making the wait for this season even more excruciating. Thankfully, we have an amusing new video from Jimmy Kimmel Live! to help pass the time until the Season 6 premiere, featuring none other than Cersei Lannister herself, Lena Headey.
The actress appeared on the late-night talk show to promote her new movie Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which hits theaters on February 5. Since Jimmy Kimmel Live! is an ABC show, he is often seen either promoting or making fun of the network's hit reality series The Bachelor, which kicked off its 19th season earlier this month. During Lena Headey's appearance earlier this week, the host asked the actress to read some of the actual insults hurled by the women of The Bachelor, in character as Cersei Lannister.Read More
