A global campaign urging action to tackle violence against girls has received some high-profile backing from Game of Thrones stars Natalie Dormer and Lena Headey.

Both actresses appear in a poster campaign with messages such as ‘since that day I’m no longer myself’ and ‘ignored my screams’, painted across their faces.

Devised on behalf of children’s charity Plan the campaign is the product of a collaboration between artist Marion Deuchars and photographer John Davis.

The international campaign is geared toward ending the practice of female genital mutilation, child marriage and violence perpetrated around the world.

Commenting on her role Headey said: “It fills me with hope that someday soon, girls can grow up in a world that is free from these harmful practices. I urge everyone - men, boys, women and girls - to join me in standing up for girls' rights' with Plan UK."
