Lena Headey, who plays the incestuous and feared Queen Cersai on "Game of Thrones," says Michelle Obama should be the nation's next president.

The raven-haired beauty made her endorsement after the first lady addressed the Democratic National Convention Monday night in an explosive, well-received speech supporting Hillary Clinton.

Headey's actress pal Victoria Smurfit, known for portrayal of vicious dog-skinner Cruella De Vil on TV's "Once Upon a Time," was so dazzled by Mrs. Obama's appearance, she tweeted:


To which Headey tweeted back:


The heavily-tattooed mother of two is no stranger to speaking her mind about world issues.

This month, she wrote an emotional essay in Marie Claire about her trip to Greece to witness first hand the plight of refugees fleeing to the island of Lesbos from Syria.

"These people aren't 'them' —they're us. They're daughters, sons, mothers, brothers, fathers, sisters, and grandparents who just want to return to their culture and to their neighborhoods," Headey wrote.

"We are all human. We belong to each other. It's time we act like it."

One of Headey's biggest splashes on "Game of Thrones" came last year when her character is forced to walk fully naked through the streets of King's Landing to atone for her crimes.

Fans of Headey were later dismayed to learn she had used a nude body double for the "walk of shame" scene — a clever CGI shot in which the actress' head was grafted onto that of a nude stuntwoman.
