Lena is mentioned at The Hollywood Reporter in the article ‘The Fresh Faces Gunning for Drama Actress Gold’, it’s nice to see that she gets some well deserved attention!
Lena Headey Game of Thrones (HBO)
Sure, Headey was tough as John Connor’s protective mother on Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. But she’s way more intriguing as Thrones’ conniving Queen Cersei. When a little boy climbing a tower glimpses her committing adultery and incest at the same time, her ruthless solution is to have him thrown out the window. Headey plays it cool as liquid nitrogen, giving just a hint of the fiery paranoia within her hard heart. Her steely gaze anchors the show’s pulpy fantasy, and she’s convincingly sisterly with wily dwarf Tyrion (Peter Dinklage). As a king’s refreshingly unsupportive wife, Headey is a supporting actress who reigns.
