Lena Headey 'refused' to film scenes with her ex-boyfriend Jerome Flynn on 'Game of Thrones'

The characters in Game of Thrones sure have a rough time of it, with all the beheadings, stabbings and burning alive - but, on the other hand, the actors in the hit HBO show seem to be great friends! Most of them, anyway...

For years, there have been rumours that Lena Headey - who plays Cersei - and Jerome Flynn - who plays Bronn - don't get along due to a failed romance, but a new report has claimed Lena hates her ex-boyfriend so much, she flat-out refused to film scenes with him.

See Lena Headey recreate Cersei's death scene with a hilarious twist:

A show source allegedly told British newspaper The Sun that it has been "very awkward on set" due to their "turbulent relationship".

"Lena and Jerome have not filmed together due to a bad break-up," they alleged. "They kept the full extent of it secret but it was a very turbulent relationship and it has been very awkward on set. Lena has opened up to her trusted friends. She appears to have a genuine hate towards him."

In 2014, an article from the Telegraph let slip that the two stars used to date, and are no longer on speaking terms as a result.

"Jerome and Lena aren’t on speaking terms anymore and they are never in the same room at the same time," they claimed. "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."

The formerly loved-up pair first met on 90s ITV drama Soldier, Soldier, but the exact details of their relationship are unknown.

In 2003, Flynn himself confirmed they previously dated, saying: "We’re not a couple right now, people have seen us together and jumped to conclusions. I can’t rule out a relationship with her in the future, I just don’t know."

Here is the trailer for the final ever episode. Do you think it'll be the pay off the fans deserve?

But with the final episode airing in just a few hours time, most fans will be more concerned at this point with how showrunners are planning on ending the show.

Things aren't looking good, with Sophie Turner recently admitting that the finale will "upset a lot of people".
