Lena Headey Wants to Debunk Myths About the Refugee Crisis


Lena Headey, known familiarly as the fearless Cersei Lannister, has another passion: the International Rescue Committee (IRC). The organization assists those who have been forced out of their home countries because of war and famine and helps get their lives back on track by establishing a long-term path for recovery. Headey, who was named an official voice of the organization, traveled to Greece (along with Game of Thrones co-stars Maisie Williams and Liam Cunningham) in 2016 and Germany earlier this year on behalf of the IRC to see the situation firsthand.
