Lena Headey to Star in Grimm Fairy Tales

Grimm Fairy TalesShe’s the Queen we love to hate on Game of Thrones, but that’s not the only project she’ll soon have keeping her busy. Lena Headey (300, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) has just signed on to voice Sela Mathers, one of the main characters in Grimm Fairy Tales The Animated Series.

Headey joins Briana Evigan in the project which is based on Zenescope Entertainment’s popular comic book series. In an unusual move, Zenescope, Titmouse Animation Studio, and director Jon Schnepp are seeking funding for the animated series through Kickstarter.com.

“We set the goal of the animated series at 175K because we wanted to give our fans and those supporting the Kickstarter a high-quality product,” said Zenescope Marketing Manager Stephen Haberman. “We’re hiring Titmouse, one of the premiere animation studios in the world, to handle the animation. We have Jon Schnepp directing and now with Lena and Briana joining the project, we’re able to take it to another level.”
