GAME Of Thrones star Lena Headey has shared a new behind-the-scenes snap from the set, revealing the cast is already filming the final series.

The actress – who plays the dastardly Cersei Lannister in the hit HBO drama – shared a hilarious snap of herself wearing a Daenerys Targaryen-style blonde wig alongside the show’s hair stylists.

Lena poses alongside hair designer Kevin Alexander and hair supervisor Candice Banks.

According to Thrones fan site Winter Is Coming, the shot confirms Lena has joined many of the cast in Belfast to shoot the last series of the show.

Lena’s co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau – who plays her twin brother Jaime – recently said he would be back on set this month.

He told Collider: “We go back in October, so maybe in the next few weeks, we’ll get the scripts and I’ll find out. I’m very curious.”

Lena’s post comes after Emilia Clarke – who plays Daenerys Targaryen – shared a snap of herself getting her brunette locks dyed blonde by the Game Of Thrones hair team.

She captioned the snap: “I done did it. Mother of dragons meet Emilia. Emilia meet mother of dragons.

“If you squint just so you might never know. 🐉⚡️

“All hail to the magnificence of @kevalexanderhair and @candicebanks74 the genius creators of ‘KHALEESI WIG’ (and not forgetting all the hair on game of thrones for 8 glorious years) for at long last making this magical moment a reality.”

Meanwhile, another of the show’s stars John Bradley promised the last series of the show will be “monumental.”

The actor, who plays trainee Maester Samwell Tarly in the show, told The Huffington Post that directors Miguel Sapochnik and David Nutter will return next season, having helmed some big Game Of Thrones episodes in the past.

“Clearly every single episode of the six you’ve got left in Season 8 is gonna be monumental and needs somebody at the helm who’s done that kind of high-stakes, high-octane direction before for us.”

John also added that each episode would be like a series finale.

He said: “I think what we used to call Episode nine in Game of Thrones folklore — the episode when everything comes to a head and you get a lot of spectacular sequences — I think you’re gonna get six ‘Episode 9s’ this year.”

The last time Thrones fans saw Sam Tarly was when he was discussing Jon Snow’s true parentage with Bran Stark in Winterfell.

But fans may have to wait until 2019 to discover what will happen between the pair when the final season airs.
