The most feared woman in the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, also known as the Mother of All Destiny turns 39 today.
To celebrate Lena's Birthday and the 20th anniversary of a screen career that began in 1992, the year she appeared in “Waterland” with Jeremy Irons, here's a selection of HQ photos of her at various events. Move the mouse over a picture to see the name and date of the event.
lena headey, the mother of all destiny, tell ye what she looks amazing, and looks really hot, then again she always does, happy birthday lena, have a wonderful birthday, wish i was celebrating it with her, in my dreams,
great picture of the two sarah connors, must be a collectors item this one both of them together, both were great in a certain way as sarah connor, but if i stuck my neck out and chose the mother of all destiny i would have to go for lena headey, she was awesome as sarah connor in TSCC.
Time to hunt for a bigger scan. :P Btw I love her star tattoos on her hands. <3 Which currently reminds me of Katie Cassidy and her stars, link. There's an interesting story behind them. I wonder if Lena has some story about hers aswell.
Lots of love for Lena in this article published at Film School Rejects, "Sarah Connor Is an Important Character in Modern Movies and the ‘Terminator’ Reboot is Nailing Her Casting".
Here's the part on Lena:
The next actress we saw pick up the Sarah Connor mantle was perfect for the job. In 2008 a Terminator television series called Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles debuted on Fox, and Lena Headey was tapped to take Hamilton’s place. As she exhibited on the show, and as we’ve consistently seen from her since in things like Dredd and Game of Thrones, Headey was the perfect performer to straddle that line between hardened and feminine that Sarah Connor sits on, and she was the perfect actress to project an aura that was at the same time bitter and nurturing. Heck, The Sarah Connor Chronicles got the Sarah Connor character so right that they even realized she was the heart of the franchise, so they put her name in the title accordingly. It’s going to be a rough road for this new Terminator reboot to find anyone talented enough to fill Linda Hamilton’s shoes, because that person is going to have a hard enough time filling Lena Headey’s shoes already. Is it possible to perfectly re-cast a character this well-loved twice?
# 13 Great comments and a nice article I have great admiration for Lena Headey, It"s very much true that she had some shoes to fill in surpassing Linda Hamilton"s as Sarah Connor, But with Lena being such a professional actress in her own right, but I would after say really it"s the opposite way round, Linda could never fill Lena"s shoes as Sarah Connor, I don"t think their will ever be another Sarah Connor that graced our screens as great as Lena, as the article Implies " The Sarah Connor Chronicles " that is Lena Headey The mother of all destiny.
The 2013 Arrow in the Head Mistress of the Year! Lena Headey!
"Getting the role in 300 saved me. I'd been out of work for 11 months after 'The Brothers Grimm.' Once the film came out and didn't do so well, the director Terry Gilliam blamed me for absolutely everything. It was pretty appalling, and I had started to wonder if I'd ever get another job again when I was asked to audition for 300."
