Game of Thrones' Lena Headey Just Lined Up Two Exciting (& Very Different) New Projects!

Lena Headey has some exciting projects heading to television!

It was just announced that the former Game of Thrones actress has joined the cast of the upcoming HBO series The White House Plumbers, which will be a look into the Watergate scandal.

The five-episode series will tell “the story of how President Nixon’s own political saboteurs and Watergate masterminds, E. Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G. Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux), accidentally toppled the Presidency they were zealously trying to protect.”

Lena will be playing Hunt’s wife Dorothy, who was a mother of four and an active CIA asset, according to Variety.

It was also revealed this week that Lena is working a TV adaptation of the award-winning kids’ horror novel Scary Stories for Young Foxes. She will be voicing a character in the animated series and will co-produce the series with Boat Rocker Studios.

Deadline reports that Scary Stories for Young Foxes is “the coming-of-age tale of two young foxes, born of different families, whose youthful misfortunes bring them together. The eight interconnected stories explore the power of scary tales, why we tell them and how we react to them.”

“During our first meeting at Boat Rocker I was asked what I was interested in, and we started talking about horror for kids, how there is a space for this, and not to shy away from putting stuff out there that’s dark and smart,” Lena said in a statement. “Kids aren’t daft — they know when we’re holding back the scary bits, so I’m so happy to be part of a great team to bring Christian’s book to life in a way that feels authentic.”

Lena has a very busy schedule as she also is starring in the upcoming television series Beacon 23 for Spectrum Originals and AMC!
