Whether you may have watched the series or you may not, which is highly doubtful, and unless you’re living under a rock, you know about the pop culture phenomenon that is HBO’s Game of Thrones. The series headlined by fan-favorite stars like Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey, and Kit Harington to name a few is the series that completely revolutionized the small-screen entertainment industry for the future.
With such a prestigious and revered TV series, the stars’ reputation and appeal shot through the stratosphere, and all of them received recognition rivaling the biggest stars in the film industry. And thus, the stars still bask in the glory of their efforts whenever fans look at them or talk about them, although, it seems like one star in particular doesn’t like being acknowledged for their work on the show.
Lena Headey Doesn’t Want Her Kids Talking About Her Role In Game Of Thrones?
In the life of a star, there is always that one moment, whether it be their performance or the project they are part of, which brings them to the notice of the public eye and makes them an icon. This time, both of these reasons became factors in actress Lena Headey‘s success in the industry by exceptionally playing the role of Cersei Lannister in the superhit HBO series Game of Thrones. And while fame and fortune may have come her way through her contributions to the show, she still tells her kids to not talk about her performance on the show.
In a weekly issue of People Magazine, the 300: Rise of an Empire actress talked about her time spent on the sets of the show that became HBO’s most successful series in history while also talking about being a parent. Here she also revealed that her kids don’t like to talk much about her career, especially as the twentieth ruler of The Seven Kingdoms. The reason behind this may be the fact that it just becomes exhausting for both them and their mother after a while since she’s so popular in her role. She said:
“If someone says, ‘Oh, you’re in Game of Thrones’, my youngest now says things like, ‘What is Game of Thrones?’ In fact, the other day she went, ‘My mommy is in…’ And I was like, ‘You don’t tell people!'”
Therefore, not letting her most famous role define her entire career or her personal life, it seems like Headey keeps the balance in her life with the show’s fame.
Why Is Game Of Thrones So Popular?
Along with its fantastical world of The Seven Kingdoms, Game of Thrones completely and excellently adapts the story of author George R.R Martin’s literary works of The Song of Ice and Fire series. The execution of the tales that surround the entire world of the books was near-perfectly portrayed in the series.
Along with that, the premise of the story itself was what caught and kept the attention of the viewers on the show. With complexly interconnected plotlines and equally complex morality of the characters mixed in with the uncertainty of the future is what kept the audience glued to their screens.
