The Game Of Thrones actress, 42, plays Harrelson’s wife Dorothy on the show and was spotted looking lovely in a powder blue dress that dropped just above the knee.
Her brunette braids were styled in a half updo with soft curls and she was seen walking into big, gold-adorned Birkenstocks with hand-scripted script.
Headey’s collared dress was accessorized with simple earrings and a matching necklace and bracelet, and was directed by a number of production staff.
In the same year the Watergate scandal erupted, Dorothy tragically died in the crash of United Airlines Flight 553, marking the first time that a Boeing 737 flight had resulted in a fatality.
