Congratulations to the Grimm Fairy Tales project

Congratulations to the Grimm Fairy Tales project. They have successfully raised the targeted $175.000 to produce the pilot for the animated series. In fact, they have surpassed the bench mark they set for funding the project. Any additionally donated money will go towards making more episodes of Grimm. More money = more episodes = more Lena. So if you would like to donate, click Kickstarter, to go to the site. The deadline for donating to this project is Tuesday May 1, 6:00pm EDT.
Will be looking forward to hearing Lena's voice, one of her voices, coming out of Sela Mathers' mouth...

May 1, 2012 Update: Grimm Fairy Tales Tally
The fund-raising effort to produce the animated series 'Grimm Fairy Tales', has come to a close. The final dollar amount raised was $188,970.

Update: Grimm Fairy Tales Fund-raising Effort

With just days left to the deadline, the Grimm Fairy Tales project has managed to raise $162,546 (and steadily rising) of the targeted $175,000 goal. If you want to help, go to Kickstarter.com and make a pledge. You'll be asked to log in or sign up with Kickstarter, and then they'll send you to Amazon Payments to complete the checkout process. If the project IS successfully funded, your credit card will be charged on Tuesday May 1, 6:00pm EDT. If the project ISN'T successfully funded, no one pays anything.
Again, the Funding ends Tuesday May 01, 6:00pm EDT.
Lena Headey will star in the entire series. She's slated to voice the lead character, Dr. Sela Mathers, a Doctor/Professor of Literature. She'll also be onboard as a creator/producer.

GoT: A Week Without Cersei...

Well, for the first time there was an episode of Game Of Thrones with no Cersei in it. That means no new screencaps. No new Lena pics. How depressing! After all, a week without Cersei is like a week without sunshine...coffee. I guess we'll have to make our own...
Warning: This is a Fake Tweet on Fake Twitter Accounts

Update: It has been brought to my attention that the 'click under the picture to enlarge' option does not work in Internet Explorer's web browser. So the small print is hard to read even when you 'click ON the picture' to open. So sorry. I have added a close-up of the Fake Tweet. I hope it is easier to read.

HBO's Game Of Thrones Emmy Submissions

HBO has officially submitted the following Game Of Thrones' actor's names for consideration in the categories of Outstanding Supporting Actor/Actress In A Drama Series:
Game Of Thrones: Actress:
Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen)
Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark)
Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister)
Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark)
Maisie Williams (Arya Stark)

Game Of Thrones: Actors:
Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy)
Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) *Last year's winner.
Kit Harington (Jon Snow)
Richard Madden (Robb Stark)

As well as Game Of Thrones for Outstanding Drama Series. *Last year it lost to Mad Men.

This year it looks like HBO has learned from the mistakes it made last year. So far, they have not made any submissions for Game Of Thrones in the category of Outstanding Lead Actor/Actress In A Drama Series. If you remember, last year they submitted Sean Bean & Lena Headey to be considered in these categories. And if you watched the show, you know that no one actor had enough screen time to really be considered in the Lead category. Maybe this time around Lena, and everyone else, will have a better shot at getting nominated.

Lena Responds to Fans on Facebook

Lena Headey:
Yes my specs are from le target... Ha!
And yes let the peeps of our page decide on my twitter pic..
...As you can see my "tweets" ?? Are hardly free flowing...
Yet I would never abandon you sweet bookers..
source: Lena's official Facebook page (April 10, 2012)
If you haven't been following the conversation... Here's the gist of it:
One of her 'sweet bookers' posted the comment guessing that Lena bought the Easter Bunny glasses that she's wearing in the pictured posted on her Twitter page from the store, Target.
(*check out the picture in question in the post titled 'Lena Twitpics' from April 10th, 2012)
Another person posted in the comment section that Lena should have a contest and let her fans post their favorite photo of Lena. Then she (Lena) could pick the winner and use it as her Twitter profile photo.
The last bit about not abandoning her 'sweet bookers'...
Someone else posted, "Don't forget us on FB. UR way 2 funny 2 B restricted 2 140 characters!!! ; )"
Truer words have never been spoken. I find the way Lena talks/writes hilarious!

More Upcoming Movies For Lena

The latest news out about Lena's future film projects has her co-starring with Emily Watson & Anna Friel in Jon Amiel’s 'The Poisoners'.
The Poisoners, a dark comedy about women left behind in an English farming community during World War I who become involved with several German prisoners-of-war.

More to look forward to...
Lena has been tapped to voice the lead character, Sela Mathers, in Zenoscope Entertainment's animated series based on its popular comic 'Grimm Fairy Tales'. The comic series, which launched in 2005, revolves around reinventions of classic fairy tales with modern twists and extended plots and centers on Sela, a literature professor who has been given the ability to affect people's lives by teaching them morality lessons through fairy tales.

And, to state the obvious, HBO has renewed 'Game Of Thrones' for a third season.

So, yippee-yahoo-hooray!!! Lots more Lena on the horizon.
