I know many actor friends out there who would give their left arm (and right one) to have a part on HBO’s “Game of Thrones”. The show is one of the hottest in the country right now, and it seems like a perfect jackpot, right…?
Apparently not for Lena Headey.
TMZ is reporting that the 39-year-old actress, who plays the evil Queen Cersei on the show, is now officially broke and in the middle of a nasty divorce case.
While there is no official reason given for why she has such money troubles (and why should she, with such a gift job in her lap?), Headley claims to have “less than $5 in my bank account” and is waiting anxiously for her $40,000 tax refund check as she is currently living off credit.
The actress says that she needs an emergency $6,000 to help pay for daily expenses and her son’s needs, and hopes to have the remaining $34,000 kept in a blocked bank account so she and her ex-husband can’t touch the money until an agreement is reached on how to split it.
We at POP wish Headey the very best of luck, and hope that “Thrones” lasts for many, many more seasons, with her evil Queen character staying the main antagonist through each and every one!
