Blog Number 130 - Lena Heady talks '300'

Frank Miller's '300' will have a cast pretty much dominated by males, which isn't suprising since this is a war movie with a little political intrigue thrown in for good measure. Therefore, it has been easy to overlook the role of Queen Gorgo who will be played by Lena Heady.

Here's a link to Superhero Hype which contains an interview with the aforementioned Lena Heady who will be playing opposite Gerry Butler. In '300' when King Leonidas goes off to battle the Persians at Thermopylae, Queen Gorgo will be left to 'hold the fort down' and fight against political subterfuge in Sparta.

Therefore, it seems that Zack Snyder's rewrite will show the battle on two fronts, King Leonidas at Thermopylae and Queen Gorgo in Sparta.
