When Lena Headey was announced as Jocelyn Fray, I
was excited because I had seen some of her work before. If you didn’t know she played Cersei Lannister on Game of Thrones.
latest movie to be released is called Dredd
where she plays Ma-Ma. It is based on a comic strip Judge Dredd. I will be comparing both of her characters Jocelyn and
finally found time to go see her latest movie, Dredd. I walked into the movie theater with my popcorn and 3D
glasses found a perfect seat and waited for the movie to start. During the
previews a ‘The Hobbit’ trailer came
on. I squealed because I knew that Aidan Turner (our Luke Garroway) is in that
movie. This preview coming on before Dredd
made my day. Our Jocelyn and Luke were somehow connected.
get to the characters. Their appearances are totally different.
first sighting of Lena Headey as Ma-Ma is when she’s in a bathtub. Her look is
very rugged. She wears a t-shirt and jeans the whole time. Ma-Ma has scars on her
cheek on the right side of her face. She also has a few tattoos. While Jocelyn was
barely in ‘City of Bones’ her first appearance is when she comes home with Luke.
She is an artist so her clothes were of course paint spattered. Jocelyn is described
as slim and beautiful.
are also not the same. Jocelyn is a mother so she cares more about her daughter
than she does herself. She is also a little overprotective of Clary. Jocelyn tries
to keep Clary away from the shadowhunter world because of what happened to her
when she was younger. Ma-Ma on the other hand has no children and cares about
no one but herself. The people that work for her are the closest thing that she
has to a family and yet she could care less if something happens to them. Ma-Ma
is her own person and could care less about what anyone thinks about her.
and Jocelyn are very different but they do share some of the same qualities.
They both left situations that were toxic for them. Jocelyn left her husband
and her life in Idris and Ma-Ma left her pimp ex-boyfriend. That is how she got
those scars on her face. Though Jocelyn changed her life for the better, Ma-Ma
did not. She ended up being a big drug lord and took over an entire apartment
complex to sell drugs out of.
lost her life because of the things that she did, but she was not afraid of
death. Jocelyn lost her family and the friends that grew up with to get away
from something that wasn’t good for her.
Headey did such a great job as Ma-Ma. She played evil so very well. I cannot
wait to see her Jocelyn Fray. They are two totally different people.
suggest that everyone go see this movie. Not only is our Jocelyn Fray, Lena
Headey in it, but it is an awesome film.
