These Are All The Upcoming Lena Headey Movies And TV Shows

Without any shadow of a doubt, when Lena Headey played the character of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, she gave probably the best performance of her life. But what's next for her? Let's explore.

Given the role portrayed by Lena Headey in Game of Thrones, she is arguably one of the most hated actors working today, all because she portrayed the role of a villain outstandingly well. It is amusing to think someone with such potential wanted to be a hairdresser when she was a kid. But, as fate would have it, she was discovered by a casting director and she landed her first role in the 1992 movie ‘Waterland,’ alongside Jeremy Irons. Her role was that of a promiscuous teenager. Her first break came when she was cast in the lead role of Kitty in the 1994 live action flick ‘The Jungle Book'. She portrayed the character of a lesbian prostitute n the 1995 British Miniseries ‘Band of Gold’. Recently she starred opposite Dwayne Johnson in MGM’s ‘Fighting With My Family.’  She is also a vocal supporter of LGBTQ rights and was involved with the International Rescue Committee. As 'Game of Thrones' came to an end, fans are eager to know what is next in store. We have prepared a list of all the movies and TV shows she is going to appear in after 'GOT', which is now over.
