Lena Headey (born on 3 October 1973, in Bermuda) is a British actress.

Her father, a British police officer, was sent to train police in Bermuda where Headey was born. The family returned to Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, when she was eight years old.

Personal life
She has several tattoos including one on her right upper arm saying 'Jason' in Thai (for actor Jason Flemyng). The couple met on the 1994 film The Jungle Book and dated until 2001. The tattoos have since been changed into butterflies, a star on the inside of each of her lower arms,a large lotus flower on her upper back and a tribal piece on her lower back These were all concealed during 300. She got married to Pete Paul on May 19th 2007 and is very close friends with actress Piper Perabo, her co-star in The Cave and Imagine Me & You.

Headey is also good friends with her Game of Thrones co-star Peter Dinklage, who first suggested to producers on Game of Thrones that she be cast as Cersei Lannister.

Headey was a vegetarian, however in a 2011 interview she stated she now eats meat again, albeit rarely.

Headey has a number of tattoos, and has stated "I was born wearing ink." Her tattoos include a large floral design on her back as well as a Pema Chödrön quote on her ribs. She told Esquire magazine that "I love tattoos. I find it calming." Her tattoos often require covering when Headey works, although she has stated that "you can usually get away with it by keeping your clothes on."
