Lena Headey thinks rejecting Harvey Weinstein’s advances hurt her career




Lena Headey thinks rejecting Harvey Weinstein hurt her career

Lena Headey, the actress behind the character of Cersei Lannister, had tweeted in the fall of October 2017 along with a lot of other women urged by the #MeToo movement to share their stories of sexual harassment. The common element in all of these stories was one man named Hervey Weinstein who later faced allegations of Sexual Harassment and Assault by the Game of Thrones actress. According to those tweets, she was apparently manhandled by Weinstein after she said no and felt violated.

“I got in my car and I cried.”

Headey went ahead to be interviewed by The Sunday Times and there she disclosed that she feels like she has hurt her career by saying no the advances of Harvey Weinstein. She felt like because she hadn’t accorded to the demands of the man, she has lost quite a lot of opportunities in her life, and in doing so, has brought a shorter end to her career than it would otherwise have been.

“After he was discovered to be a slimeball, on a grander scale than me just knowing it, I did start thinking, ‘Fuck, maybe because I didn’t shag him, that’s impacted a decade of my working life,’” she told the Times. “Because I did two jobs for Miramax before those incidents, and after that there was nothing.”

Harvey was one of the power players in Hollywood, and with the start of the #MeToo movement, he has been the target of quite a few allegations along with other similar powerful people in the industry. Harvey currently faces two counts of non-consensual encounters with females and is set to be judged by the law on a date set in May 2019.

It is set to start in 1938 Los Angeles amidst a lot of socio-political tensions tearing the country apart.

Detective Tiago Vega, played by Daniel Zovatto, gets assigned to investigate a gruesome murder in the middle of the city which leads him to explore the vast cultural heritage of the city fo Los Angeles including the Mexican-American heritage, Espionage attempts of the Third Reich and much more. True to its predecessor, Detective Tiago and his family get caught up in the supernatural powers looking to tear them apart.

Dormer is set to play the role of Magda in the series, a shapeshifter who can change her appearance to resemble anyone in the show. Other significant celebrities alongside Dormer include Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves.

While the cast of the show has more or less been decided upon, shooting and production are set to begin this year. However, there is neither a tentative nor a presumable date for the premiere of the show. In contrast, the eighth season of Game of Thrones already has a set premiere date and it is on the 14th of April, 2019. Actors of the series now look for roles elsewhere as the series comes to an end and fans eagerly wait to witness the end of an epic saga.
