Lena’s family moved to Yorkshire when she was a teenager, and at 17 she was spotted acting in a play for Shelley College at the Royal National Theatre when 17, and that is when her career as an actress began. Lena’s first film that she acted in was “Waterland”, directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal, in which she worked with such actors as Jeremy Irons, John Heard, Ethan Hawke among others. After her role in this film, Lena  appeared in small roles in various movies.

After her debut movie, Lena acted in such movies as “The Remains of the Day”, “The Jungle Book”, “Mrs Dalloway”, “Onegin” and others. Although roles in these movies were minor, she gained a lot of experience and had an opportunity to work with such actors as Mike Nichols, John Calley, Liv Tyler, Ralph Fiennes, Sam Neill and many others, plus they increased Lena’s net worth steadily.

Lena’s debut appearance as a leading actress was in the movie “The Brothers Grimm”, in which she acted with Heath Ledger and Matt Damon. Headey’s success grew much faster after this movie and she received more and more invitations to play roles. In 2005 Lena appeared in “Imagine Me & You” and “The Cave”, for which she was praised for her acting skills. Undoubtedly, this growing success had an impact on Lena’s net worth. Another movie which gained Lena acclaim was “300”, directed by Zack Snyder; while acting in this movie Headey had an opportunity to work with Gerard Butler, Dominic West, David Wenham and others. To 2015, Lena has been involved in almost 50 productions on the big screen.

In addition, Lena began appearing in television series as well. “Band of Gold”, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, “The Long Firm”, and “How We Used To Live” are only few. Of course, these appearances affected the growth of Lena Headey’s net worth. One of her most famous and probably most successful appearances in a TV series was her role of Cersei Lannister in “Game of Thrones”, which series gained acclaim all over the world, so there is no surprise that the actors in this series became very well known as well. Overall, Lena has made more than 20 appearances on TV.

In her personal life, Lena Headey dated many co-stars and other actors before marrying musician Peter Paul Loughran in 2007; they have a son, but divorced in 2013. She has been in a relationship with Dan Cadan since 2013, and had their daughter in 2015. The family now lives in California.
