Game of Thrones Stars Lena Headey and Michelle Fairley Team Up for Short Film

The series finale of Game of Thrones may have aired last month, but the show’s cast haven’t slowed down since the iconic series ended. Lena Headey, the actor best known for playing Cersei Lannister, has been filming the upcoming action movie Gunpowder Milkshake alongside Marvel's Karen Gillan. However, it turns out Headey has even more going on. According to her latest Instagram post, the actor recently directed a short film, The Trap, that stars someone near and dear to the Game of Thrones fandom: Michelle Fairley, who played Catelyn Stark during the show’s first three seasons.
