The merry-go-round of casting continues into season five, it seems! We’ve learned through unofficial sources that when King Tommen’s big sister returns to our screens in season five, she’ll have a new face.
Princess Myrcella Baratheon was last seen in season two being shipped off to Dorne in tears. WiC‘s unofficial sources have confirmed that Northern Irish actress Aimee Richardson, who originated the role of the princess, will not be returning next year. Rumor has it that English actress Nell Tiger Free will be taking on the role. If these rumors are correct, this will be second Baratheon recasting, with Dean-Charles Chapman taking over the role of Tommen in season four.
Nell Tiger Free is best known for starring as Chloe in the BBC adaptation of Mr. Stink. The actress also recently guest-starred on an episode of the crime series Endeavour.
HBO has declined to comment on any casting at this time.( Mild season five spoilers are tucked below the cutCollapse )
