Over the past few months, rumors have suggested Game of Thrones alum Lena Headey was set to make her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At the time of the rumors, the project she was reportedly involved in wasn’t entirely clear, but it was thought she would appear in Thor: Love and Thunder in some capacity. While Headey’s casting was never officially announced, Variety has confirmed she did have a role in the project – but she was ultimately cut.

The news comes as the outlet states Headey is being sued for $1.5 million by her former U.K. agency Troika over unpaid commission fees relating to a number of projects. Among those projects is none other than Thor: Love and Thunder. The agency, which has since rebranded as YMU, is claiming that the actress owes them approximately $500,000 – a 7% fee based on her earnings for the Marvel Studios film. While Heady did film something for the project, the actress does not appear in the final cut of Thor: Love and Thunder, and her role remains unknown.

Despite the agency’s claims, Headey is insistent that YMU is not entitled to any fees from her earnings on Love and Thunder as director Taika Waititi approached her for the film directly.

Thor: Love and Thunder will hit theaters next weekend.
