Lena Headey is one mother of talented actor...but she wasn't always known for playing one of the fiercest Lannister women in all the realm.

Before the Game of Thrones star was nominated for her first-ever Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama, she was slinging pizzas for drunk people! Can you even imagine it?

Obviously, she's come a long way from her first job, and we hope she takes home the hardware on Monday. To celebrate some of our favorite first-timers like Headey this awards season, we asked them all five burning questions. Check out what Orange Is the New Black's Uzo Aduba had to say about her early win, see all of Scandal's Joe Morton's answers, and read Fargo's Colin Hanks' answers.

Now, it's Headey's turn in the hot seat. Check out her answers below:

1. What was your first job?

I worked in a pizza take-away place, mainly making pizzas for drunk folk after the pubs shut. 

2. Which other TV show would you love to guest star on?

Well, Breaking Bad obviously, though I think I've missed the boat there...Penny Dreadful would be fun. And ALWAYS Parks and Rec!

3. List three things you'll have with you on Emmy night.

Slight panic/minor anxiety/good friends.

4. Who do you most want to share a drink with?


5. Who do you most want to take a selfie with?

Too many to list.
