Who knew that Lena Headey, the actress that plays Sarah Connor in the Fox TV show The Sarah Connor Chronicles, has tattoos? And lots of them too! Apparently the folks that make the show put a lot of effort into covering them up. In a recent interview Headey says:
Question: I understand that you have quite a lot of body art.
Lena Headey: Yes.
Question: You don't really see it on Sarah Connor.
Lena Headey: Well no, because they hate that I have it. The powers that be say she would never have them...So they cover them up. I don't really mind them doing that because they're my tattoos, they're not Sarah Connor's. It's just part of being an actor.
I personally love them. I find them charming and I feel that they're part of me. A lot of people don't like them, especially in the industry, but everybody has them now. I tell you, if you could find the perfect chemistry for covering up a tattoo, you'd be a billionaire.
Question: What's your favorite tattoo?
Lena Headey: I like them all really. I've just had my back piece finished and I love that. It's a big piece on my back with peonies and swallows. It's got a lot of movement in it, and it's just something I'd always wanted to do. It goes from my lower back, it sort of curls around my womanly shapes, and then it just comes up around my shoulder.
As you can see from the image above -- there's no sign of Lena's ink work when in-character.
