Game of Thrones star Lena Headey has claimed Harvey Weinstein angrily marched her out of a hotel after she rejected his advances.

The British actress posted a series of tweets in which she detailed meetings between the two where the Hollywood mogul allegedly made “suggestive” comments towards her and became enraged after she rejected his advances.

It follows a series of women accusing Weinstein – who has “unequivocally denied” the claims against him – of sexual harassment.

Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, said she first met the film producer at the Venice Film Festival.

She wrote: “Harvey asked me to take a walk down to the water, I walked down with him and he stopped and made some suggestive comment, a gesture, I just laughed it off, I was genuinely shocked.

“I said something like, oh come on mate?! It’d be like kissing my dad!”

Headey said in another meeting at a Los Angeles hotel about potential work, the pair talked about films before the producer turned his attention to the “state of my love life”.

“I shifted the conversation back to something less personal,” Headey wrote.

She claimed Weinstein then asked her up to his room to give her a film script.

“We walked to the lift and the energy shifted, my whole body went into high alert, the lift was going up and I said to Harvey, I’m not interested in anything other than work, please don’t think I got in here with you for any other reason, nothing is going to happen,” said Headey.

“I had such a strong sense of don’t come near me.”

The actress said Weinstein was “silent” and “furious” as they walked towards his room.

She said: “His hand was on my back, he was marching me forward, not a word, I felt completely powerless, he tried his key card and it didn’t work, then he got really angry.

“He walked me back to the lift, through the hotel to the valet, by grabbing and holding tightly to the back of my arm, he paid for my car and whispered in my ear, don’t tell anyone about this, not your manager, not your agent.

“I got into my car and I cried.”

The allegations come after the film producer was fired from the Weinstein Company earlier this month.

The company is set to hold a meeting on Tuesday to discuss the future of the firm.
