Lena Headey Ultimate Doctor's Note We Need You in Europe for 'Game of Thrones'

11/18/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

111716-launch-lena-headey-letterLena Headey has pulled out the big guns in her custody war -- passing a letter to the judge from the "Game of Thrones" Executive Producer demanding her presence on the set.

Lena and ex-hubby Peter Loughran are in a 'GoT' war over custody of 6-year-old Wylie. Lena is begging the judge to modify the current custody order and allow her to keep the boy in the UK, where she films the show. Peter is dead set against it, claiming it would deny him access to his son.

The current order allows Lena to take the boy to the UK only when she films, and Peter says she should be done shooting and wants Wylie back. So Lena has now brought in the ultimate doctor's note from EP Bernadette Caulfield, who says she must stay in the UK for "possible addition scenes and pick-ups" through February 2017.

It's interesting ... the letter does not say her services are definitely necessary but, as you know, winter is coming, so she has to be on call.

Lena wants to move to the UK permanently, because her family is there and she thinks the schools are better. She also says she's paying Peter $10k a month in child support and he hasn't even seen the child in the last 3 months.

The judge has yet to rule.

Lena Headey to Ex-Husband U.S. Schools Suck!! Our Kid Stays In The U.K.

EXCLUSIVE

0927-lena-headey-tmz-01Lena Headey says she won't be returning her son to L.A. anytime soon -- father's wishes be damned -- because the American education system sucks.

Headey's ex-husband, Peter Loughran, claims in new legal docs Lena agreed to return their 6-year-old son from the U.K. after she was done filming "Game of Thrones" ... but didn't.

Headey supposedly emailed Peter saying she was enrolling their son in a Yorkshire school because the kid was being held back by a subpar American school system.

Loughran insists the deadline for returning the kid was Sept. 5th, so she's brazenly violated their deal and his right to make decisions for his child. She begs to differ, saying he agreed the boy could live with her in England.

Loughran says he hasn't seen his kid in 8 weeks ... Headey hasn't even let them chat on the phone.

The former couple will have a showdown in an American court next month.

EXCLUSIVE

0825-jason-momoa-guinness-beer-INSTAGRAm-04Jason Momoa hyped up "Game of Thrones" fans by hanging with the show's creators in Northern Ireland -- where they're about to roll on season 7 -- but it's not what you think.

Momoa captioned the pic with David Benioff and D.B. Weiss "ALOHA DROGO," and fans immediately speculated Khal Drogo was coming back from the dead.

The real story ... Jason just loves to party, and happened to be about an hour away from his bros. Our sources tell us he was in Dublin touring the Guinness Brewery, where they gave him his own custom "Mano Brew," 'cause ... look at the handsome bastard.

We're told Momoa's absolutely not filming NOW ... but never say never.

Michael Sam says he's moving on from his near street fight in West Hollywood -- telling TMZ Sports he's way more upset at the way "Game of Thrones" ended last season. 

Sam returned to the nightlife scene just 24 hours after he exploded on a guy in the street --when he roared at the dude, "You give our community a bad f***ing name!"

So, when we saw Sam on Wednesday night, we had to ask what exactly set him off -- and the answer?? GAME OF THRONES! 

Well, kinda ... watch the clip. Sam's pretty slippery for a 250 pound guy.

EXCLUSIVE

Here's Hafpor Julius Bjornsson -- better known as "The Mountain" from "Game of Thrones" -- pulling a 17-TON BIG RIG in Iceland like it was a Tonka Truck.

Hafpor was training in Iceland for the upcoming Arnold Strongman Classic when he decided weights weren't good enough ... he wanted something much MUCH heavier. 

He chose the truck ... and we're told the 6'9", 400 lb monster didn't just pull it once ... we're talkin' multiple laps!

Sources close to Hafpor also tell us everyone at TMZ Sports is frightened of him (they didn't but it's true).

Watch the video and you will be too.
