'Game of Thrones' actress Lena Headey -- who currently plays the oft-hated Cersei Lannister, Queen of Westeros, on the hit show -- claims she's flat broke. As in, "I only have $5 in my bank account" broke.

Headey says she needs money from her upcoming tax return to be able to feed her 2-year-old son, which is proving difficult as her ex-husband is asking for half of their $46,000 refund.

For now she says she's living off credit cards because her lucrative (we're assuming) 'Game of Thrones' check is still in the works.

Hey, HBO, help a sissah out. She's good for it. After all, a Lannister always pays their debts.
