Cersei Lannister

Cersei Lannister (Game of Thrones)

Cersei Lannister may be cruel, vindictive, and heartless on numerous occasions throughout Game of Thrones‘ first four seasons, but that’s what makes her so great. Cersei lands a spot on this list not because she’s likable or someone you want to root for her. She’s on this list because when she walks into a room on Game of Thronesshe commands attention. When she speaks, you’re eager to listen. And because when no matter whether you consider yourself a supporter of the Starks, the Tyrells, or even House Hodor, you find yourself captivated by the actions of Cersei Lannister, no matter how evil those actions are.
