I met her at the London Film and Comic Con in 2014 and it was a real pleasure. The 5'5 rating was correct at the time. I met her in the middle of the afternoon. I do not doubt that 5'5.5 would be possible early in the morning. She would not look out of place, in terms of her height and appearance, with members of the modern British aristocracy and she is very convincing as Cersei.

Her hair makes her look about 165cm,i don't see anymore than 163-164 range,possibly just about 163cm.

"She looks very eastern European/Jewish to me." Don't see it...although in the photo w/ Rob she might pass physically for a member of the tribe, she looks very English to me, haha.

Well, she's always in long gowns on GOT so you can't really tell her height because you don't know her footwear, but looking at outside pics she looks completely average in height, so this listing seems spot on

Do you think the 5'5.5 was a morning measurement?
[Editor Rob: quite possible somebody could measure almost 5ft 5.5 at 9am and go with it. I think she was a classic 5ft 5]

Wow... prettier as brunette. Surprising for those of us who know her mainly from 300 and Game of Thrones.

I had the pleasure of meeting her on the weekend in Calgary for the Expo. She is just the sweetest thing, 5'5 sounds right.

i like the fact that she is not wearing, or almost not wearing any make up on the photo.....and why should she, she is beautiful

She's 5'5. I've seen her at the premieres of Game of Thrones and Dredd in Los Angeles and she definitely is 5'5 without heels of course. Extremely beautiful and a great actress as well. She is an amazing villain in both Game of Thrones and Dredd.

look is so good
Jason said on 8/Sep/12
Did she look better in person? This photo doesnt do her justice I think
[Editor Rob: the print colour isn't quite on the money, but she looked to have pretty minimal makeup in any case.]

[Editor Rob: maybe 5ft 8 is possible]

Ah, thanks for the reply. Yeah my guess was about 5'7.5, although he can look shorter at times. Anyway, 5'5 seems pretty spot on for Headey.
jtm said on 8/Sep/12
she looks 5'4 in most pictures.
pancake said on 7/Sep/12
REALLY? i thought she was close to 5'8!
Sceptic said on 7/Sep/12
You sure are getting pictures with a lot of the GoT cast these days, Rob. I guess they must be making the rounds at conventions these days.

I was wondering how tall you thought Alfie Allen (who plays Theon Greyjoy) is?
[Editor Rob: maybe 5ft 8 is possible]

Rob, she said "So donít forget that crucial half-inch" and you're not even giving it to her? Not even a 166 cm? haha
mf said on 13/Jun/12
She's looks tall.
terminatorfan said on 12/Jan/12
I think she's more like 5'4. She always looked shorter than Summer Glau in the Terminator series. Also, her I.D. at one point (in the show's pilot) says 5'4. Her legs just don't look long enough for 5'5''. Having said all that, she is gorgeous.

She looked average in st trinians. Tamsin edgerton is really tall. I think 180+. 166cm for heady is right considering there were a lot of models in that movie.
Bon said on 16/Dec/10
wow, I thought she was much taller. Certainly I don't buy anything under the listed height.

Lena Headey got some abnormally crazy shoes in there how she walks in them i donno, she looks 1.76-1.77cm there so take off these 10+cm shoes and she would be 1.65 to 1.67cm.

wow....bellucci looks 1.78cm in that picture! i bet she is 1.68cm to 1.70cm cause of course she got heels under that dress.
Anonymous said on 7/Feb/06
I have a sneaking suspicion that she's shorter than that. In the picture below, she looks about three inches shorter than Matt (listed as 5'10" here) and almost a full head shorter than Heath (listed as 6'1" on this site).

And her heels look close to three inches:

So unless Matt is 5'11.5" and Heath is 6'3", Lena's probably much closer to 5'4".

Heights are barefeet estimates, derived from quotations, official websites, agency resumes, in person encounters with actors at conventions and pictures/films.
