Heady, who is best known for her role as Queen Cersei in Game of Thrones, appeared to be filming several scenes at the same train station in the suburb of New York City.

She was costumed in multiple vintage looks and hairstyles – from a teased haircut with a simple blue dress to a voluminous bouffant with a plaid dress.

One look showed the star wearing a printed silk scarf over her hair, matched with burgundy polyester pants and a khaki jacket.

Set during the controversial Nixon administration of 1972-1974, Lena was the epitome of the era for a professional woman.

The star was actually born in the midst of the short-lived disgrace of US presidents in October 1973.

The GoT actress plays character Dorothy Hunt in the Watergate series with an all-star cast of Hollywood hard hitters.

Dorothy is the wife of one of the Watergate masterminds, former CIA agent E. Howard Hunt, who will be played by Woody Harrelson.

Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy [Justin Theroux] planned the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate Building in Washington, DC.

The Whitehouse Plumbers will revisit the infamous 1972 Watergate scandal.

The project comes from the executive producers of Veep and is based on public records alongside the book Integrity by Egil ‘Bud’ Krogh and Matthew Krogh.

Hunt and Liddy played a key role in overthrowing US President Richard Nixon, despite working tirelessly to protect the government at all costs.

Both members of the White House Plumbers — a special investigative unit created to stop the leak of classified information such as the Pentagon Papers to the media — staged a break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters.

Liddy and Hunt were convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping after their agents were arrested at DNC ​​headquarters in 1972 – what was called the Watergate scandal.

Liddy refused to testify before the Senate committee investigating the scandal and spent nearly 52 months in prison, while Hunt spent 33 months in prison.

The star-studded cast includes Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones), Ike Barinholtz (The Oath), John Carroll Lynch (Zodiac), and Domhnall Gleeson (Run).
