Watch 'Game of Thrones' Star Lena Headey Recite 'The Bachelor' Dialogue as Cersei Lannister

The ABC reality series has never sounded deadlier, thanks to the Queen of Westeros.

Every true survivor on Game of Thrones has a weapon of choice. Arya Stark has Needle, Jon Snow wields Longclaw, and Cersei Lannister…well, Cersei has her tongue, sharper than most swords in the Seven Kingdoms.

The Queen Regent of Westeros' ability to cut enemies limb from limb with her wicked words owes a lot of thanks to Lena Headey, the actress who has played the royal villain for six seasons and counting. Headey's rare talent to turn just about any common sentence into an unrelenting assault has never been more clear than in her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, where she was tasked with reading actual lines from the reality show The Bachelor with all her signature Lannister venom.

"I don't think there's one girl who is competition…I think I'm way prettier than everyone else," Headey said to the camera, before laughing and taking a sip from an ornate wine goblet that looks like it belongs in her King's Landing cupboard.

Needless to say, the fact that something as absurd as Cersei on The Bachelor can send shivers down the spine tells you everything you need to know about this legendary Thrones villainess.
