Aimee Richardson Is A 'Princess For Hire' After 'Game Of Thrones' Recasting
Aimee Richardson, who played Princess Myrcella on the first two seasons of HBO’s Game of Thrones, wants people to know she’s now a “Princess For Hire.”
Aimee Richardson Is Princess For Hire
Richardson, 16, had assumed that she’d be back in the role of Myrcella for Game of Throne’s fifth season. As the second oldest Baratheon child – that was actually born of the incest between her mother Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and Cersei's twin brother Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) – Myrcella stood to be crowned queen following Joffrey’s (Jack Gleeson) death at The Purple Wedding.
Following The Purple Wedding episode, Richardson took to Vine, placing a crown upon her head and saying, “I’m ready.”
Unfortunately for Richardson, Game of Thrones producers announced at Comic-Con that Nell Tiger Free would be replacing her in the role of Myrcella for the upcoming season. Once again taking to Vine, Richardson proved she has a sense of humor by posing on a sidewalk with her crown and a sign that simply reads, “Princess For Hire.”
Nell Tiger Free has previously appeared in feature film Broken and TV series Endeavour.
