The reason why Game of Thrones' Cersei and Bronn will never appear on screen together


The following article contains mild spoilers.

There are feuds, frays and fights aplenty in Game of Thrones, but a new fan theory hints at off-screen tension too.

Episode seven's high-stakes negotiations between major players Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen left everyone on the edge of their seats.

But Bronn - played by actor Jerome Flynn - abruptly left in order to let "the fancy folks" talk without him.

Lena Headey, who plays Cersei, then entered the courtyard in a timely manner.

This trivial and quite possibly meaningless coming-and-going has sparked an elaborate theory on social media.

According to a 2014 report inThe Telegraph, Lena and Jerome used to date - and it sadly didn't end particularly well.

A crew member told the paper at the time:

Jerome and Lena aren't on speaking terms anymore and they are never in the same room at the same time

It's a pity because they appeared to have patched things up for a while, but now the word is they should be kept apart at all costs. 

It is of course entirely possible that the two characters have no need to interact - Bronn deals with Jamie and Tyrion more often than not and has had need to engage Cersei up to now. We might end up getting through all of season 8 without the pair ever crossing paths.
