lena_headey_7Lena Headey (300, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) has been cast in the last major part in HBO’s Game of Thrones pilot, according to Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune.

Headey will portray the blonde Cersei Lannister, a woman of royal blood who is every bit as smart, cunning and devious as the powerful men around her. She also gets up to certain shenanigans that are a bit wrong.

Other cast members include Peter Dinklage as Cersei’s brother Tyrion, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (New Amsterdam) as Cersei’s twin, Jaime, Sean Bean as aristocrat Ned Stark, Jennifer Ehle as his wife Catelyn Stark and Mark Addy as King Robert. HBO confirmed the casting of Headey on Tuesday.

The Game of Thrones pilot, an adaptation of the fantasy novel by George R.R. Martin, starts shooting in late October in Northern Ireland.

Do you think Lena will make a good Cersei? is A Game of Thrones going to work as a TV show?
