Nearly 50 women have come forward with claims that Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted them in some way, and on Tuesday, 17 October, Lena Headey joined the growing list. When she declined his advances, he warned her to keep quiet.

The producer ended up marching Lena back downstairs to a vehicle, all while "grabbing and holding tightly to the back of my arm", leaving the 44-year-old on the brink of tears. The two met for breakfast and then Weinstein invited her to his hotel room in order to show her a script, according to Headey.

She said he had made "some suggestive comment" after taking her for a walk to the water.

Despite allegedly trying to forcefully take her into his room, she said the producer marched her out of the building with his grip on her, as his room keycard wouldn't work.
