“Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey is taking her love of mid-century modern architecture to a fixer-upper in Sherman Oaks. The actress is starting over after a well-publicized and financially difficult divorce forced the sale of her 1959 classic at the end of 2012.

That larger, $1.349 million home had similar lines to the home the actress bought April 4 in Los Angeles. The 3-bedroom, 3-bath, 1,808-square-foot Sherman Oaks home is an old-fashioned, one-owner house that was built in 1951. It’s a modest choice for a star of one of TV’s hottest shows.

The British actress, 40, is best-known for her role as villainous queen Cersei Lannister in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” series. She has a 4-year-old son with her ex, musician Peter Loughran.

Headey’s new home is clearly a fixer, with old-fashioned ivory curtains and dated green carpet. But it has many of the same features as Headey’s former home, with a fireplace, wood floors and lots of glass. And she’s getting into Sherman Oaks for $790,000 — perhaps leaving room in her budget for a remodel.
