More ravens are coming to fans of “Game of Thrones” as it approaches its Season 5 premiere. We may be a few months away, but the showrunners definitely how to amp it up and give fans more excitement for their upcoming season. The show has recently cast a new member of the show that will play the role of the young Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). Read below for the full details.

According to the Telegraph, Neil Williams has been cast to play the role of the young Cersei Lannister. It only means that we will be taken down memory lane and see how Cersei’s childhood was. However, reports have been coming out said that Cersei’s past would not revolve around how she was raised but the time when she and her friends met Maggy the Frog. There’s also a huge chance that we will see Tywin Lannister again this season who will play a role in Cersei’s flashback as Charlie Dance is confirmed to appear in “Game of Thrones” Season 5 despite being killed in Season 4.


“Game of Thrones” fans are aware that this is going to be the first time that the show will present some flashbacks, which means that this is going to be interesting.  It would also be nice to see how the whole Cersei-Jamie incest started.
