Actor Lena Headey of “Game of Thrones” has been sued by her former management company over breach of contract and unpaid fees. Troika, the agency that managed Headey between 2005 and 2020, claims “the actress owes $1.5 million in unpaid commissions, including $500,000 from her “Thor: Love and Thunder” salary. The agency also seeks a $300,000 commission from the film “9 Bullets” and $650,000 for the scrapped Showtime series “Rita.” Headey left Troika after her agent left for another company and claimed that her work with the agency was based on a verbal agreement with her agent, Micheal Duff, but that she never signed a contract with Troika.
“The actress claims that she and Duff never altered the terms of their deal since verbally agreeing on them in the 1990s. She also notes that Troika only handled her European affairs and that she was also represented by CAA in the United States throughout their entire business relationship.”
She will next be seen in the upcoming HBO miniseries “The White House Plumbers” alongside Woody Harrelson, Justin Theroux, and Kathleen Turner. Other upcoming roles include the AMC series “Beacon 23” and the film “9 Bullets,” in which she stars alongside Sam Worthington.
