YIKES: Turns Out This Major Game Of Thrones Actor Almost Quit The Show!
Winter is well and truly here, folks. As we all gear up for Game Of Thrones' colossal return to our TV screens for Season 7, it turns out that one of the major players in Westeros almost flew the coop completely.
Carice Van Houten, who plays that fkn crazy sheila Melisandre (otherwise known as the Red Woman), admits that she very seriously considered leaving the show in order to be with her newborn son, Monte.
Speaking to News Corp, Van Houten, 40, revealed how her priorities changed once she became a mother.
"It all became unimportant to me," she said. "It’s a great, important show but once you’ve just had a baby nothing else really matters."
Look, fair enough Carice but also completely not fair enough at all. What about us?! We've been waiting over a year to see what fresh hell you will bestow upon Westeros' finest this season and to think we almost would have never found out.
For those who need a reminder, Melisandre has essentially spent the last six seasons being fkn evil, convincing lords to burn their daughters at the stake and getting her tits out. What a life she leads.
