L.A. Times + NY Daily News + Jimmy Kimmel Live

Here is a great article by Geoff Boucher in the L.A. Times titled 'Game of Thrones' duo: 'Anxiety and insomnia but no complacency', that is full of LenaLove! Its actually more of a part 2 of his earlier Lena article, ‘Game of Thrones’ queen: Lena Headey lights it up in dark role.
DB: We never thought of Cersei as a particularly funny character until Lena read for the part. We had seen a number of excellent actresses, but everyone had interpreted the character as an emotionless ice queen. Lena took her in a different, stranger and more interesting direction. In her hands, Cersei embodies endless contradictions. The queen can seem both ruthless and fragile, often in the same scene. She can exhibit extreme cruelty but also utter devotion to her own children. And she’s damn funny, which is no surprise if you know Lena.

There's a short article/interview with Lena in the New York Daily News titled, Actress Lena Headey, star of "Game of Thrones," says she's not evil like her character Cersei

Fans seem to hold a grudge: there's even a Facebook group called "I think Cersei Lannister needs her head lopped off."

It's even gone sour at San Diego ComicCon, the annual mecca for geeks where Headey was once treated as a conquering hero as the (good) queen from "300" and then as the titular Terminator-killer in the television series, "The Sarah Connor Chronicles".

"I was sitting between (Peter) Dinklage and Emilia (Clarke), who are the most beloved characters on the show, I literally just got ignored," she says of her visit last summer. "People were giving Pete the books to sign and they kept moving away from me as if I was going to curse them."
