Charming English actress Lena Headey was born on 3 October 1973, in Hamilton, Bermuda. She is a British actress who is best known for her appearances in The Brothers Grimm (2005), Possession (2002), and The Remains of the Day (1993). Headey stars as Queen Gorgo, a heroic Spartan woman in the period film 300 (2006), as well as Cersei Lannister in HBO's television series Game of Thrones.

Her father, a Yorkshire police cadet, was stationed in Bermuda at the time. She grew up there and in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. Headey had her first experience of acting as a pupil at Shelley College. Her performance in a one-off show caught the attention of a casting agent, who took a photo and asked her to audition when she was 17 years old. Finally, Headey was cast in Waterland (1992), which became her big-screen debut. She nurtured her natural acting talent while filming and also took archery classes and horse training. She also took boxing classes in clubs in south London, where a former boxer had been teaching her to spar. During her film career which spun over 15 years, Headey has shown her range in a variety of roles, playing characters from Amazon-type warriors and action-minded women in The Cave (2005) and The Brothers Grimm (2005), to a lesbian florist in Imagine Me & You (2005).

Headey's film career has taken her all over the world. She was in India for the filming of The Jungle Book (1994), then in St. Petersburg, Russia, for filming Onegin (1999), and in Norway for filming of Aberdeen (2000). In 2005 Headey was filming in Romania and in Mexico, and then spent four months in Prague, Czech Republic, where a forest was designed and built for filming The Brothers Grimm (2005), with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger. During 2006 Headey was in Canada for the filming of 300 (2006), then went to locations in Bulgaria for shooting The Contractor (2007), and Germany and in Czech Republic for the filming of The Red Baron (2008).

While Lena's physique was unimpressive compared to other actresses, she also was willing to take off her top for her craft. For the happiness of fans, Headey has maintained her readiness to get nude, a clever strategy that has allowed her to win roles away from shapelier but shyer women. You can see her nude pictures in various sites.

Headey has completed shooting the first three seasons of the HBO series Game of Thrones, where she plays the cruel queen, Cersei Lannister. She had a guest appearance in the hit TV show White Collar in the episode "Taking Account" in which she played the role of Sally. She was nominated for a Scream Award in the category of Best Fantasy Actress.

In 2012, she appeared in the 3D action sci-fi movie Dredd alongside Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby. Her character is Madeline Madrigal (Ma-Ma), the leader of a drug dealers’ gang, and the project's primary villain. Dredd is a film adaptation of 2000 AD character Judge Dredd. The movie was directed by Pete Travis with a script by Alex Garland. In May and June 2012, Lena filmed the fantasy adventure film Mariah Mundi and the Midas Box throughout South West England, playing the role of Monica, the movie is scheduled for release in 2014.

In her teens, Lena also began suffering from bouts of depression, which have recurred at times ever since.

She has a nice body shape of 32-25-33 inches and a height of five feet and six inches. She weighs approximately 110 pounds and is attractive, though not so hot and sexy. This actress has nice legs and has a potential to do a lot better in maintaining her shape and size. She is a British citizen and she is of white ethnicity. Having a net worth of about 500 thousand dollars, she still has more years of her career to come. Hope she does well in the future.
