Girl of the Day - Lena Headey

In a spasm of bad parenting, I sat down over the weekend to watch the movie 300 with the Regular Son.   Bad idea:  too much gore, and some scenes that had too much sex stuff going on.   Fortunately he focused on the visual aspect of the movie, which comes from a Frank Miller graphic novel and was remarkable at times.   Or at least that's what he said.   Not sure; he's 14, and, well, you know.

Anyway, a relatively unknown British actress-model, Lena Headey, played the Queen of Sparta, Gorgo:

She apparently is now starring in the HBO series, Game of Thrones.
