'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey gets over her nerves to teach kids the word 'relax' on Sesame Street -- VIDEO

Lena Headey plays the cunning queen Cersei on Game of Thrones, but when she taped her guest appearance on Sesame Street, that intimidating persona was nowhere to be seen — in fact, Headey found herself a little intimidated by the experience.

In a “Word on the Street” segment on the PBS show, Headey teaches kids the word “relax,” which she told EW on set was “ironic, ’cause I’m terrified right now!”

It was a guest role that meant a lot to her, having grown up watching Sesame Street in Bermuda. She recalled loving Big Bird as a kid and having a Sesame Street play set with miniature versions of the characters. When Headey told her parents that she’d scored a guest role on the show, her dad started crying. “It was what we watched together, so he was beside himself,” she said.
