'Sally4Ever': 'GOT' star Lena Headey is unrecognisable as a rustic baker in Julia Davis' dark comedy
Lena Headey of 'Game of Thrones' is all set to make a cameo appearance in the fourth episode of Julia Davis' 'Sally4Ever'
Missing Cersei Lannister? The good news is you don't have to wait till next April to see her on the premium network cable HBO as the 'Game of Thrones’ star Lena Headey is all set to make a cameo appearance in Julia Davis’ 'Sally4Ever'. However, chances are you may not recognize her.
'Sally4Ever,' a twisted lesbian sitcom airing on Sky Atlantic and recently on HBO follows the story of Sally (Catherine Shepherd) who has been in a 10-year-relationship with her ultra-boring and pathetic boyfriend David (Alex Macqueen). Her dull life takes a wild turn when she chances upon Emma, a bohemian singer and an actress, played by Julia Davis herself.
Three episodes in on Sky Atlantic and one episode down on HBO, we are going to meet Lena Headey in the fourth installment after Emma moves in with Sally after David moved out. However, the royal Queen of King's Landing looks nothing like a royalty as she is dressed in rags for a role of a rustic baker, but still less rustic than the role Julia Davis' Emma has to play.
The above clip comes a day after HBO released their own teaser for 'Game of Thrones’ season eight, featuring the release month for the hugely hit TV show. As one of the main protagonists in 'GOT', Lena Headey narrates the teaser. "When you play the Game of Thrones you win — you die." Her appearance in 'Sally4Ever' where she seems to be having a meek tete-a-tete with the director of the film they are working on is in stark contrast to her role in 'GOT'.
The fourth episode also stars 'The Thick Of It' and 'Getting On's Joanna Scanlan as a make-up artist who Emma tries to manipulate into making her look glamorous for the rustic kitchen maid role she's bagged. She's only there to serve as Lena Headey's assistant, but we see her desperately trying to steal the show. The director shouts "action" and we can't wait to see these powerful women battle it out for the spotlight.
