* ButIPlayOneOnTV: She recalls in some interviews that some people call her a bitch to her face because they found Cersei Lannister so unlikeable.


Added DiffLines:

* FakeAmerican: Maybe a quarter of her roles. (an exception is the [[FakeNationality Fake Greek]] in ''Film/ThreeHundred'').
* ImageSource: As [[Series/GameOfThrones Cersei Lannister]], for MotherMakesYouKing [[note]]along with Creator/JackGleeson[[/note]]
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: She's played more than her fair share of villains such as Ma-Ma and Cersei, and even her more sympathetic characters tend to lean toward uptight or anti-heroic. In reality, Lena is a fun-loving and friendly woman with a goofy sense of humor (as best demonstrated by [[https://twitter.com/iamlenaheadey her Twitter feed]]) who is adored by her cast mates.
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** Fans of ''Series/{{MacGyver}}'' may recall that the last conversation [=MacGyver=] ever has with another character (in the closing scene of the final TV movie ''Trail to Doomsday'') was with the {{Adorkable}} daughter of the character whose death set the plot in motion. Guess who that was beneath the terrible haircut and ugly glasses.
** She's the female lead of the 1994 film ''Film/TheJungleBook'', over a decade before Lena starts playing her [[Film/ThreeHundred most]] [[Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles memorable]] [[Series/GameOfThrones roles]].
* StarMakingRole: Although her roles in ''Film/ThreeHundred'' and ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'' gave her attention, ''Series/GameOfThrones'' is generally remembered as what truly made her a star.
* TrollingCreator: She is fond of obliquely spoiling future ''Series/GameOfThrones'' plot developments on Instagram. Before its fourth season started airing, she messed with people's expectations when she posted [[http://instagram.com/p/nEeNM0PA3L# a heart-shape made of stones]], which teased that Lady Stoneheart would appear. She didn't.
* TypeCasting: As queens and other women trying to raise their sons to be great men. Subverted in ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' where she's called "Ma-Ma" but isn't an actual mother.

Notable examples are ''Film/ThreeHundred'', ''Series/TerminatorTheSarahConnorChronicles'' (she begins the series as a single mother with the child's father long dead), ''Series/GameOfThrones'' (her husband [[YourCheatingHeart wasn't]] her [[{{Twincest}} main love interest]] in this series though) and ''Film/ThePurge'' -- but [[BuryYourGays notably]] ''[[BuryYourGays not]]'' in ''Film/ImagineMeAndYou''.
