Headey then worked on two of her most prominent film roles prior to production on Game of Thrones, as Queen Gorgo in the movie 300 (2007) and as Sarah Connor in the TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008-2009).

Since Headey began working on Game of Thrones, she has also starred as the main antagonist in Dredd (2012), an adaptation of the Judge Dredd comic book series.

Ultimately she lost to Anna Gunn for her role as Skyler White on Breaking Bad.

Lena Headey was born in Hamilton, Bermuda, because her father (a Yorkshire police cadet) was stationed there at the time.

She spent the first five years of her life in Bermuda, until her family moved back to England. The infamously troubled production of The Brothers Grimm was so stressful that Headey took a year off from acting afterwards. Headey's first major film roles came in the mid-2000's, appearing in the horror film The Cave (2005) and in Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm (2005), opposite Matt Damon and Heath Ledger.They settled in Shelley, West Yorkshire, where Lena grew up.By her own admission, Lena was rebellious and frequently skipped school, spending the day riding around on trains. The first movies she appeared in were Waterland (1992), The Remains of the Day (1993) and The Jungle Book (1994), which also featured Ron Donachie.
