Lena Headey is an exceptional actor. She has worked in various roles, known most for her role as Queen Gorgo in 300 and its sequel, and as Queen Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, whom she plays most excellently. She has been praised by many as acting as a character that you truly despise, yet can feel for in her role as Cersei Lannister. How fitting it is that she would be in the news as Season 5 of Game of Thrones has been making all new records, and she’s in the news for something so very positive, perhaps the greatest experience she’ll ever have. She’s having a daughter, in just over a month in fact! What a special gift. That alone is amazing, but what Lena remarked about it was even more amazing. Her dedication to freedom and strong women is just absolutely incredible and she is a great role model for women everywhere. The 41 year old actor (41! We’re as surprised as you) said this about her new child:
“I am having a baby girl in six weeks. My daughter will have freedom of choice. She will be free to dance, to sing, to be educated in the fields that spark her passion, to marry if she wants, to marry WHO she wants, to remain single, or to fall in love with another woman. She’ll be able to wear what she wants, put on lipstick, and read books that spark debate and expand her mind.”
We’re so excited for you Lena. We wish you and your daughter the absolute best and we hope she forgives you for playing one of the most hated and loved TV characters out there!
