Games of Thrones Star Lena Headey Opens Up About Mental Health on Twitter

Lena Headey is best known for playing Cersei Lannister on HBO’s Game of Thrones.   However, as people quickly forget, Lena’s actually a real life human being who faces real life human issues just like the rest of us.  Earlier this morning a fan sent out a very simple question to the actress’s Twitter account.  The question reads “Do you get insecure Lena?”  About three minutes later the Twitter user got a response from Heady herself that reads “I overthink for sure.  I am familiar with depression.  I get HUGE anxiety (always fun).  Insecure, not really.”

But it didn’t end there.   Over the next half an hour or so, Headey went on with a series of Tweets talking about anxiety and depression.  The actress got very personal but also very therapeutic to those who were asking her questions.  It was a very sincere moment in that many actors don’t necessarily share like that online.

However, it was refreshing to see that someone on arguably the most successful show on television gets anxiety just like we do.   And she too wants people to be aware that they’re not alone.  Just another reason to be a fan of Lena Headey.
