Lena Headey, known for her roles in Game of Thrones and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, will be starring in a new show called The Abandons on Netflix. The show is an action drama series created by Kurt Sutter. It follows a group of different families who are pursuing their dreams in Oregon during the 1850s. However, a wealthy and influential group wants their land and will do whatever it takes to eliminate them.
A group of people abandoned by society, often called “lost souls,” come together to form a family and fight against their oppressors. However, the fight is violent, and the idea of “justice” goes beyond the limits of the law.
The Abandons is a show exploring the struggle between survival and the law and the impact of violence and secrets. The story follows a family fighting to keep their land from being taken away. Lena Headey will play the role of Fiona, a strong and devoted mother figure who couldn’t have her children. Instead, she adopted four orphans to create a loving family. Fiona is driven by a strong sense of purpose and has an Irish temperament. She values her faith and loves her family above everything else. Lena Headey is a well-known actress who played Cersei Lannister in all eight seasons of the popular HBO series, Game of Thrones.
After Game of Thrones, Lena Headey worked on various projects, including voice work for Infinity Train, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, and the D.C. League of Super-Pets movie. The Abandons, a new show created by Kurt Sutter, who is known for Sons of Anarchy and Mayans M.C., has been officially picked up by Netflix. The combination of Sutter and Headey will surely attract much interest to the show. More information about the rest of the cast will be revealed. In the meantime, you can also see Headey in the upcoming HBO series, The White House Plumbers, later this year.
