You have a huge pile of Game of Thrones CDs, posters, and what not. Such a huge fan of Game of Thrones you are! Isn’t it? No? Then why do you collect things related to Game of Thrones? Okay, let me make a wild guess. Is it because of actress Lena Headey? Yeah! That was a good guess. Being a Headley fan is quite legitimate. She’s worth commendable.
Starting her career at the young age of 17, her struggle began from 1990 in the small screen. The only big budget film that gave her both name and fame is ‘The Brothers Grimm’, ‘300’, and ‘The Red Baron’. Born in Hamilton, Bermuda, the Cersei Lannister actor Headley had no one from his family belonging to the film industry. Her first acting experience was in college when she was 17. Perhaps it was then that she realized that she could try a hand in acting.
Her rise to fame began with ‘The Brothers Grimm’. Regarding her character in this movie, Headley said: “I loved the fact that she was a tomboy.” This tomboy look attracted Lena. This is what made her do the film. Next comes the successful romantic drama ‘Imagine Me and You’. Though the movie earned a good number of positive reviews, yet the critics praised her performance as a lesbian. Her wonderful performance in ‘300’ also acquired a lot of praises. While filming ‘300’, she said: “it’s always weird, the thought of taking of taking your clothes off in front of 20 people and then to have it projected in front of many more.”
Her massive success was in Game of Thrones. Actress Headey of Game of Thrones is seen to be portraying a loveless marriage with Mark Addy. She hates her younger brother in the movie because of his mistress. Although it is adapted from a novel but widely acclaimed all over the world.
