Lena Headey will be back on the small screen again.
The former Game of Thrones star is returning to television in AMC’s Beacon 23, TVLine is reporting.
The series is based on Hugh Howey’s 2015 sci-fi novel of the same name and follows two people — Aster and Halan — whose fates become entangled after they find themselves trapped together at the end of the known universe.
When Aster mysteriously finds her way to Halan, a lonely beacon keeper, on his lighthouse in the darkest recesses of space, a tense battle of wills unfolds as Halan questions whether Aster is friend or foe. Per the character description, Aster’s “ability to disguise her agenda and motives could make her a formidable opponent” for her new companion.
Lena will star as Aster, and also executive produce the show alongside Zak Penn, who will be showrunner.
“Lena Headey was a wonderful, versatile actress before she gave one of the defining performances in television history. So, as they say, ‘no pressure,’” Zak said in a statement. “I’m thankful to all the people making this show possible, they just keep delivering beyond my expectations.”
Just recently, Lena reunited with one of her Game of Thrones co-stars for a special project.
