Lena Headey Reveals the 'Game of Thrones' Death That Left Her Heartbroken

Lena Headey is on the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, where she was interviewed by Game of Thrones co-star Maisie Williams!

Here’s what the 43-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On casting directors wanting her to flirt with them for jobs: “When I was in my twenties, and doing a lot of audition tapes in the States, a casting director told me: ‘The men take these tapes home and watch them and say, Who would you f***?’ I’ve never played the game of going in [to auditions] and flirting; I’ve never done it.”

On suffering postpartum depression while filming: “[Filming was] really horrendous – I was postnatally depressed but I didn’t know it. I saw a doctor for the medical check, and I just burst into tears. She said I was postnatally depressed and I went, ‘Am I? Why is that?’ I saw a great guy and he sorted me out, but I did the first year [on Game of Thrones] in that space, figuring out motherhood and going through a weird time personally. It was tricky.”

On the Game of Thrones death that left her heartbroken: “Last season I was doing [post-production] in LA and watched Hodor’s death. I was just weeping. The technician said, ‘Are you OK?’ and I went, ‘I didn’t know, I didn’t know he died.’ I was beside myself; genuinely heartbroken.”
