When you’re a nurse tending to Game of Thrones star Lena Headey and her baby and you also happen to be a huge Game of Thrones fan, the obvious thing to do is to make things incredibly weird, right? That’s what happened to Cersei Lannister.
Headey stopped by Late Late Show and told host James Corden about one heck of an awkward experience she had after giving birth. The night nurse professed she was a big fan of the HBO fantasy series and Cersei in particular, but something tells us Headey didn’t know how big of a fan the nurse actually was.

“I was trying to breast feed [my daughter] to calm her down,” Headey said after explaining her daughter was being treated for jaundice. “And…this is a lot of info, everyone. So when you’re in the early stages of breastfeeding…it takes a little bit of hand milking.”
But Headey’s man wasn’t doing to job, so the night nurse came to the rescue. “She came around and sat next to me, squeezed my nipple and went, ‘Shame,'” Headey said. And she couldn’t really react since the nurse was holding her nipple. “And then she said it again and then I saw her go, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t believe I said that!'”
Can you imagine? The nurse obviously had Cersei’s iconic shame walk on her mind. At least she didn’t have a bell to ring in her face.
Game of Thrones season six premieres Sunday, April 24 on HBO.
