Normally, Lena Heady, who plays Cersei Lannister in HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” can simply get her way within King’s Landing. However, this is not the case in real life. This after a court ordered Heady to bring back her son to the United States.
According to TMZ, Peter Loughran managed to convince the court that Heady violated a 2013 custody agreement. Heady’s violation stemmed after she enrolled her six-year-old son, Wylie, in a school in England without Loughran’s permission.
Earlier, the court gave Heady some leeway when she stated that she would return to US soil with their son after they finish taping the show. Loughran was present Wednesday when a court in L.A. handed the decision.
Heady and Wylie was supposed to fly back to LA last Sept. 5 but was not able to make it. In their agreed custody, Loughran is given 10 days a month to visit Wylie. And since Loughran will travel to England to spend time with their son, Heady will pay for his travel expenses as well.

Heady wanted Wylie to enroll in a school in England since the education system is far better than in the United States. However, Loughran denied that he agreed for their son to move to there and continue his studies.
Loughran insisted there was no such agreement and wanted to spend time with Wylie in his home in Los Angeles.
Heady and Loughran got married in May 2007 and got separated in 2011. The two then filed for divorce in 2012 and was officially finalized on Dec. 2013. Aside from Wylie, Heady also gave birth to her second child, a daughter in July last year.
