'Game of Thrones'' Original Flavor Myrcella Actress Aimee Richardson Has the Best Ever Reaction to Being Recast

By Cindy Davis | Videos | July 30, 2014 | Comments ()


I’ll go ahead and say it: I don’t understand why Game of Thrones decided to recast Myrcella Baratheon. Unlike the case of Tommen Baratheon, who was obviously and appropriately aged up, Aimee Richardson (16) has been replaced by Nell Tiger Free (14). I’m sure the producers have their reasons, but it’s also a major bummer for Richardson. Nevertheless, she’s handled the rumors and the eventual confirmation like a champ. When angry fans reacted, she tweeted appropriately:

And then after she’d heard, Aimee posted to her Vine…

“Well, this is embarrassing.”

Aimee also invited a possibly missing book character, Arianne Martell to join her:

What a sweetheart…

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) hopes Richardson gets a great role soon.
