Lena Headey - Queen Censei Penniless? Game Of Thrones Actress Lena Headey In Dire Straits

Actress Lena Headey, who plays Queen Cersei in Game of Thrones has revealed that she is stone broke and relying on a legal settlement with her estranged husband to free her from her financial shackles. TMZ obtained copies of legal documents filed by Headley in response to Peter Loughran’s demands for half of their 2011 tax refund for $46,000.

Lena claims that she has “less than $5 in her bank account," according to the TMZ report. She filed for divorce from Peter last year and now claims that she desperately needs some of the tax refund to cover her living costs, as she’s living off credit and barely has enough to get by and care for their 2 year-old son. Lena’s asking for $6,000 of the funds and has suggested that Peter be allowed the same, for now. She has also asked that the rest of the money be placed in a two-signature blocked bank account, until a decision has been made on how to split the funds.

This is shocking news from one of the most popular characters on a hugely successful TV show and it doesn’t look for her financial prospects, right now, even if she does claim to be expecting some acting wages to be coming through any time soon. Peter’s initial request for half of the cash was turned down by the courts, as was Lena’s own suggestion of how to split the money. So, no decision made so far, then.
