Cersei and Yara from "Game of Thrones" met for the very first time IRL and it was adorably sweet
Our favorite fantasy drama, HBO’s Game of Thrones, is starting to film their next season, and we are all combing the deets for any hints as to what’s coming up. But when we watch all of our favorite characters in the same episode all the time, we totally forget that many of these actors have never met in real life. Crazy, right?
In fact, Cersei and Yara just met for the very first time while filming Season 7. They randomly ran into each other at the airport, and their twitter convo is too adorable.
That’s right, Cersei, played by Lena Headey, and Yara, played by Gemma Whelan, only met because they were both at the airport on the same day. It’s crazy that this was their first meeting, and we really hope that they become BFFs. But now that we think about it, we realize that they’ve probably never filmed anywhere near each other.
Cersei is almost always in King’s Landing.
Lena hangs out with some of the other characters who she’s met on the show.
Like her adorable friendship with Pedro Pascal, who played Prince Oberon.
Or the High Sparrow!
