The “Game of Thrones” franchise has undoubtedly helped boost Lena Headey’s net worth. Being a part of one of the most successful series in television history, playing one of the characters definitely has its perks.

With that said, people have been curious to know about Lena Headey’s net worth. As it turns out, the 45-year-old English actress, who plays the role of Cersei Lannister in “Game of Thrones,” is just as rich in real life.

Lena Headey has only appeared in about 25 minutes of “Game of Thrones” season 8 across three episodes. However, don’t feel bad for the actress as she reportedly made almost $50,000 per minute of screen time in the last and final installment of the mega-hit HBO series.

Based on what made the final cut, Fox News calculated that the actress earned US$48,000 a minute for her work, adding more to Lena Headey’s net worth.

It is worth noting that Lena almost certainly acted in more than 25 minutes, even though that’s all that will air. It is no secret that most scenes are shot multiple times and some scenes are edited out altogether.

Following the airing of ‘The Bells’, Lena took to Instagram to pay tribute to her conniving character.

She wrote:

“There she goes. It’s been fun, and bonkers. I loved her. I am grateful for the opportunity. Massively thankful for your encouraging and supportive love along the way. And now her watch is ended (I know she’d never make it, Nights watch wouldn’t have her .. but still..)”

Although Lena is best known for portraying “Cersei the Evil Queen” in “Game of Thrones,” her successful career began way back in the early 1990s. Being in the business for almost three decades, what is her net worth?

Lena Headey’s net worth is $9 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
