The Fresh Faces Gunning for Drama Actress Gold

An interesting article on the new faces of TV and possible Emmy contenders, mentions Lena in Game of Thrones!
When Kyra Sedgwick won the lead drama actress Emmy for The Closer last year, on her fifth nomination, and newcomer Archie Panjabi took home gold for her supporting role on CBS freshman drama The Good Wife, the actress races officially became the most unpredictable — and exciting — to watch unfold.
This year, while several repeat contenders are gaining heat, including Wife lead Julianna Margulies and Mad Men co-star Christina Hendricks, five brand-new lead and supporting talents are adding refreshing twists. Here’s why they’re contenders: [...]

Lena Headey (Game of Thrones)
Sure, Headey was tough as John Connor’s protective mother on Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. But she’s way more intriguing as Thrones’ conniving Queen Cersei. When a little boy climbing a tower glimpses her committing adultery and incest at the same time, her ruthless solution is to have him thrown out the window. Headey plays it cool as liquid nitrogen, giving just a hint of the fiery paranoia within her hard heart. Her steely gaze anchors the show’s pulpy fantasy, and she’s convincingly sisterly with wily dwarf Tyrion (Peter Dinklage). As a king’s refreshingly unsupportive wife, Headey is a supporting actress who reigns.
