See A Whole Different Side Of ‘Game Of Thrones’' Lena Headey In Kasabian’s New Music Video

The song is a single from the band’s new album, "For Crying Out Loud."

Anyone who's seen an episode of HBO's epic fantasy series Game of Thrones knows Lena Headey is phenomenal in her role as the ruthless and formidable Queen Cersei Lannister. Some may know her from before she made her way to Westeros in roles in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and 300. But in her latest close-up, Headey left her dark medieval clothing behind and zipped up a red, white, and blue windbreaker instead. 

Headey stars in the new music video for English rock band Kasabian's single "III Ray (The King)." The song is featured on the band's sixth album, For Crying Out Loud. In May, the album became their fifth consecutive album to top the U.K. charts at No. 1. 


In the new music video, Headey can be seen decked out in eyeglasses, a pink turtleneck, the aforementioned windbreaker, and jeans as she practices black magic in an effort to resurrect King Richard III. After burning a series of candles, dipping cookies in tea, and making a few facial expressions begging to be screen-shotted, she succeeds. Naturally, she decides to take King Richard III, played by English actor Michael Socha, on a pub crawl. The pair later dance merrily in a field and share a messy meal together. Eventually, the king keels over and becomes nothing but a pile of dirt and bones once again. 

The video is a fun look at Headey in a totally different light from Game of Thrones. And it's gotten us even more excited for Headey for her new role in Fighting with My Family, the biopic of WWE wrestler Paige, which premieres next year. Sure, we'll always love our favorite Game of Thrones characters for their performances in the show, but we can't wait to see how well they do in their next endeavors after the show airs its final season in late 2018 or early 2019. 

Until then, you can watch Headey in the music video for "III Ray (The King)" below.
