Everything you need to know about Gunpowder Milkshake and Game of Thrones star Lena Headey’s plastic surgery speculations. Check out her face with before and after pictures.
Born in Bermuda on 10th March 1973, and raised in Yorkshire before relocating to London, England as a teenager, Lena Headey was noticed by an acting agent at 17 years of age upon performing in a school play with some of her friends.
She was later was invited to audition, which led to her cinematic debut in the British mystery drama film Waterland (1996).
Headey proved to be a natural performer despite her lack of formal instruction, and she has played a wide range of parts in her profession, from fierce warrior-like women in films like The Brothers Grimm (2005) and a Spartan queen in 300 (2006) to a charming lesbian florist in Imagine You and Me (2005).
By far her most famous part is that of the wicked Cersei Lannister in the epic HBO fantasy-drama Game of Thrones. Recently, she is making rounds for her involvement in the 2021 film Gunpowder Milkshake, which has prompted speculations of cosmetic alterations.

Despite the popular HBO drama already concluding for two years, the quaint, manipulative Cersei, played by Lena Headey has remained one of the most popular characters from Game of Thrones.
Fans now are wondering whether there is a secret behind the Gunpowder Milkshake actress’ immaculate skin and everlasting beauty. Headey is thought to have had some modest plastic surgery performed, most notably facial fillers and blepharoplasty, to keep her young shine.
However, no substantial plastic surgery is visible because we can still see the creases on her face and some mild wrinkles, indicating that she did not have Botox.
Despite this, she has preserved her skin appearing fair and smooth, and her cheeks are still firm, maybe due to the fillers. Or might it be because she enjoys boxing? She also practices yoga on a regular basis!
Her character as the cunning queen in the aforementioned series also necessitated that she appear mature. And even as she gets older, Lena Headey maintains her inherent beauty.
While she looks slightly different in her latest film Gunpowder Milkshake starring Karen Gillan, Freya Allan, and Chloe Coleman – we’re willing to give her the benefit of the doubt that it’s less to do with plastic surgery and more with makeup combined with aging.
Fans Were Curious if Lena Headey Had Breast Implants Following Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale
In the Game of Thrones season 5 finale titled Mother’s Mercy, Lena Headey‘s Cersei Lannister does an infamous walk of shame.
After Cersei breaks, she is prepared to confess. She then gets transported to the High Sparrow, where she gets down on her knees and tells him exactly what she believes he wants to hear.
Cersei, though, is still lying about Jaime even while she does it. He informs her that she will face a trial and that he is willing to free her. But he isn’t done with her yet.
She must first perform an atonement act. They shave her head (“like Aslan,” according to actress Lena Headey). Then, as they did with the High Septon in the early part of the season, they strip her completely naked and force her out the door.
Cersei walks and is followed by a lady chanting “Shame” while ringing a bell while the crowd gathered becomes exceedingly hostile. Needless to say, Headey’s acting in this scene is enthralling.
Meanwhile, some fans got curious whether Headey had undergone breast implant plastic surgery after watching her unclothed in front of the camera. However, that’s not the case. For Cersei’s Walk of Atonement, they used a combo of CGI and a body double.
Lena was pregnant at the time, and she also has numerous tattoos. Cersei’s body hasn’t maintained the standards after having 3 kids, drinking a lot over the years, and never working out.
