After working steadily as an actress in supporting roles in films during the 90s, she found fame for her lead performances in big-budget films like the fantasy movie The Brothers Grimm (2005), starring Matt Damon and Heath Ledger.
However, she started to be worldwide known thanks to the action film 300 (2007). There, she plays the role as Gorgo, Queen of Sparta, and its follow-up 300: Rise of an Empire (2014).
“Getting the role in ‘300’ saved me. I’d been out of work for 11 months after ‘The Brothers Grimm.’ Once the film came out and didn’t do so well, the director Terry Gilliam blamed me for absolutely everything. It was pretty appalling, and I had started to wonder if I’d ever get another job again when I was asked to audition for ‘300.’
Other important works include the adventure and biographical feature The Red Baron (2008) and the Jungle Book (1994).
Since 2011, Lena Heady has portrayed Cersei Lannister in HBO’s TV series Game of Thrones. Her performance on the show has earned her an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
She practices boxing and yoga.
She is vegetarian and has also campaigned on behalf of animal rights. Great girl!
“There is something in the act of having tattoos done that I love. It can be quite addictive. I’ve got a few on my back because my friend is an artist, and a few on my arms. Every time I pass a tattoo parlour, I think, ‘Maybe just a tiny one.’
We cannot wait for Game of Thrones season 5! Game of Thrones season 5 rocks!
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
