HBO announced the news today.
The news comes a few weeks after news broke that a series of rumors had begun circulating that Jon Snow (Kit Harington) had married Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) during Season 5.
We now know that Cersei is alive and well, though not quite as she once was, as the actress revealed to Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s very much true,” she told EW.
“I don’t know how you would know.
I know that we have a lot of stuff coming out soon.
But I think that this is one of those things where it’s been happening for a while and it just felt like the right thing to do.”
She continued, “We’ve had this thing in the back of our minds for a long time and it’s finally happened.
So that was the one thing that I thought was so interesting.”HBO will air the first episode of Season 5 on June 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
