Game of Thrones' Lena Headey secretly marries Ozack actor Marc Menchaca in Italy

Game Of Thrones star Lena Headey has married fiancé Marc Menchaca in a lavish ceremony in Italy.

The actress - best known as ruthless Queen of the seven Kingdoms Cersei Lannister - looked blissfully happy as she exchanged vows with the Ozark star.

The loved-up pair were photographed celebrating with friends and family at the star-studded private gathering on October 6.

The bride wore a traditional white gown on the day keeping it simple with a sleek satin halterneck design that featured lapel details.

The colour scheme of the artistic-themed nuptials coordinated with the flowers in her hair, with cream, blush, and nude-toned flower displays around the venue.

Lena, 49, had her brunette hair pinned off her face in loose waves, with the addition of a simple flowing white veil and pink and white flowers adorning her head.

The star accessorised with simple bangles and a small pair of earrings, opting for traditional nude and blush-toned bridal makeup for her big day.

She clutched a floral bouquet complete with roses and other flourishing blooms as she gazed adoringly at her new husband.

Ozark star Marc wore a blue three-piece suit with a white shirt and a blush tie for the event, adding a beige stetson hat to finish his slick look.

Lena began dating Marc - famed for his betrayal of tragic Russ Langmore on the hit Netflix show - back in 2020 when she relocated to enjoy life in the USA following her split from ex-husband Dan Cadan.

Celebrities attending the ceremony included Lena's former Game Of Thrones co-star Sophie Turner - known for her portrayal of Sansa Stark - who brought along her husband Joe Jonas.

Her on-screen brother Tyrion Lannister star Peter Dinklage also joined the celebration as the couple made the most of their day.

Marc is Lena's third husband following her previous 2018 marriage to director Dan - with whom she shares a daughter, Teddy, six.

She also previously wed Irish musician Peter Loughran in May 2007, with the couple splitting in 2011 and sharing custody of their son Wylie, 12.

Lena was also linked to Game Of Thrones co-star Jerome Flynn with rumours rife that they had to be kept apart on set of the epic HBO show.

However, Jerome - who was reportedly dating Lena in 2014 - went on to deny these claims after it was suggested to him they never appeared in any scene together.

Speaking at the Nashville Con of Thrones event in 2019 he said: "We were actually in the same scene together,. And the last time I saw Lena we were speaking, so I wouldn’t believe everything you read."

He then heaped praise on his former co-star both on a personal level and for her skills as an actress as he addressed the subject further.

He added: "Lena’s a wonderful person and a wonderful actress."
