On HBO's Game of Thrones, Headey plays the blonde and incestuous Queen Regent Cersei Lannister. In the big screen sequel to 2007's 300, she keeps her royal status by reprising the role of Queen Gorgo, who is now a widow after the death of her husband King Leonidas in the Battle of Thermopylae. Once again, the Spartan queen will be called on to use her political influence, but this time to aid an alliance between Sparta and its traditional rival of Athens, which is the first city that is targeted by the Persian Army that destroyed her husband's.
