Just when we thought one Red Priestess is enough, “Game of Thrones” has just added another one for its 6th season. One Red Priestess is enough to wreak havoc, so what would a second one do? Double Trouble!
Melanie Liburd has been cast as a Red Priestess in the upcoming “Game of Thrones” Season 6. Does this mean Melisandre played by Carice van Houten is dying this season? But no, Liburd isn’t taking over because she’s really playing ANOTER priestess.
Liburd has taken to her Instagram account to share the good news that she has joined the Emmy-winning HBO series. She captioned: “Flying back to London then on to Spain to film ‘Game of Thrones.’ Holy *%#@ dreams actually do come true! I’m so excited I feel like jumping up and down!! #HBO #britactressinla #actress #fightforyourdreams #dreamjob #keeponkeepingon #neverstop @peaceout.”
Her presence in the show made a lot of fans happy, thinking that Melisandre would resurrect someone, specifically Kit Harrington’s Jon Snow and if there are two priestesses on the show, they now think that it’s all for Jon Snow! Does that also mean that however powerful Melisandre is, she couldn’t resurrect one person on her own?
Also, to get your hopes even higher than ever, resurrection is definitely not a new thing to “Game of Thrones” because we’ve seen it happen. Remember priest Thoros of Myra resurrecting Beric Dondarrion using the power of the Lord of Light? So, yeah, Jon Snow may possibly be alive and he would probably be in debted to Melisandre all his life.
We’ve seen Liburd in “Stalker” and “CSI.” Another additions for “GOT” Season 6 are Freddie Stroma who will play Samwell’s brother, Ian McShane, his role still remains a mystery and Max von Sydow who will play the role of the Three-Eyed Raven.
“Game of Thrones” Season 6 will return to HBO in 2016.
