Lena Headey of ‘Game of Thrones’ gets her price and more for Sherman Oaks home
Call it another plain conquered for Cersei Lannister.
Lena Headey, known for her role as the conniving queen on “Game of Thrones,” has sold her home in Sherman Oaks for $2.05 million. That’s $105,000 above the asking price and nearly three times what she paid for the property three years ago — $790,000.
The 1950s-era home, tucked behind walls and vertical fencing, was extensively remodeled and expanded during Headey’s reign. Updates include bright artistic tile, a reimagined kitchen and Fleetwood sliding doors that open to the backyard. Distressed wood siding creates visual interest along the front of a new, second-story addition.
A vaulted-ceiling family room, a living room with a brick-surround fireplace, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms lie within more than 2,900 square feet of living space.
Vertical gardens line the walls in the backyard, which features ample patio space and a swimming pool. An outdoor shower, hedges and drought-tolerant landscaping complete the setting.
The property came to market in July for $1.945 million and had an offer in hand in two weeks, records show.
Zoe Rudolph of John Aaroe Group was the listing agent. Jimmy Heckenberg of Rodeo Realty represented the buyer.
Headey, 43, had the title role in the 2008-09 series “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Among her film credits are “The Brothers Grimm” (2005), “300” (2006) and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” (2016).
This year the British actress appeared in the thriller “Thumper” alongside Eliza Taylor and Pablo Schreiber.
