Game of Thrones Casts New Red Priestess

Meet Daenerys' passionate new supporter

Sadie Gennis

There's a new Red Woman coming to Westeros: British actress Melanie Liburd has been cast on Game of Thrones as the Red Priestess, Deadline reports.

Though Deadline speculates that Liburd will be taking over the role of the Red Priestess Melisandre, played by Carice Van Houten, it's more likely Liburd is playing a new servant of the Red God. Based on a casting notice and a leaked audition, Liburd is playing Kinvara, a Red Priestess who visits Mereen under the impression that Daenerys is the One Who Was Promised.
