When you’re so used to seeing actors dressed up and in character, it’s sometimes easy to forget that they’re real people too.

Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, has always been very honest and open on Twitter.

On Thursday, one of her fans asked Headey a question about insecurity.

Her response came three minutes later.

In the hours since, Headey has been tweeting about her own anxiety, and responding with messages of support to her fans.

You go, Lena.
