GoT Star Lena Headey Being Sued by Her Former Agency
Headey is being sued for $1.5 million by her former U.K. agency Troika over unpaid commission fees for various projects including the upcoming Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder. According to Variety, her former U.K. agency, Troika, which re-branded as YMU in 2020, claimed that the star owes them at least $500,000 which is equivalent to 7% of her fee, for her earnings on the Marvel Studios film.
Meanwhile, the actress in her defense claimed that she never had any contract with Troika pointing out that she was also represented by CAA, which means Lena Headey was not solely the client of Troika.
