Lena Headey, who plays the villainous Cersei Lannister on HBO’s Game Of Thrones, announced last month that she is pregnant with her second child and asked for privacy from photographers, but it doesn’t appear that they’ve taken her request to heart. The Game Of Thrones actress was snapped in Studio City this week as she stepped out to get some food with a friend and looked cool and comfy in a tank top and knit pants.
Headey told People Magazine last month that she hoped her news would keep nosy photogs at bay, saying, “I’m happy to confirm that I’m having my second child this summer. I only hope that this announcement can help me to regain some of the privacy I have recently lost to prying photographers and ask that they please respect my privacy and let me enjoy this time.”
Unfortunately, Game Of Thrones has become so popular–and her character’s story arc so juicy–that it will probably be nearly impossible for her to stay clear of the paparazzi, especially when the show’s fifth season is about to begin. The fact that Headey reportedly hasn’t revealed who the father of her baby is will only fuel the fire.
Lena has a son with ex-husband Peter Loughran; the couple divorced in 2013. Rumors have been floating around the web that she is seeing her GOT co-star Pedro Pascal, who has been seen out and about with the actress.
“Lena is one of my favourite persons. And she is so funny and so smart, such a good person, a good friend and a good mother. I think everyone on that set and anyone who comes in contact with her develops an instant crush,” Pascal said.
Headey stopped by to talk to Jimmy Kimmel last year about her role on the popular show and even agreed to have a Game Of Thrones-style conversation with him, complete with wine. Watch their exchange below.
