Watch: Cheeky New Kasabian Video Featuring Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey

 

As Season 7 of Game of Thrones came to a close, poor Cersei Lannister had to consider whether to execute both of her brothers – while also facing the impending invasion of the Army of the Dead.

So little wonder that actress Lena Headey should want to just rock out and have a bit of fun on her down time. And what better way than to hang out with those cheeky boys from Kasabian? Not that it’s all just rock & roll shenanigans, mind. Indeed, grabbing the starring role in the Brit rockers’ brilliant new video for “Ill Ray (The King),” she takes to occultism in an attempt to summon Richard III – whose remains were discovered in 2012 to be buried under a parking lot in Leicester – back from the dead.

The song itself (from the band’s awesome new album For Crying Out Loud) totally f**king rocks. And Lena does seem to be having quite a bit of deliciously mad fun in her role.

As the Marquis of Dorset puts it in Will Shakespeare’s Richard III, ‘Dispute not with her, she is a lunatic.”
